Dress Code/Uniform Information  --   DRESS CODE POLICY

Flaherty students should be neat and clean.  Student dress and appearance should neither disrupt nor distract from the educational environment of the school.  The faculty and staff will determine appropriate dress.

Examples of appropriate dress include:

  • Shorts/pants must be at least knee length or longer
  • Skirts and/or skorts must be at least knee length (even if leggings or tights are worn underneath).
  • Shoes must be worn at all times- tennis shoes are recommended (no wheelies)
  • Fitted Leggings / Tights are to be worn as accessories only, NOT as stand alone pants
  • Shirts with sleeves

Examples of inappropriate dress include:

  • Shirts showing midriff, revealing necklines, open backs, or sleeveless
  • Tank tops and spaghetti straps
  • Sagging pants
  • Clothing with offensive and/ or suggestive messages, logos, or pictures
  • Any head coverings including but not limited to hats, bandanas, caps, sweatbands, and sunglasses
  • Long chains hanging from the pants pockets, and other improper items that disrupt the educational environment
  • Extreme hair dyes
  • Ripped or torn clothing (holes in jeans must be below the knee)
  • Pajamas and house slippers

When a student is informed of distracting or inappropriate dress, the student will be asked to make arrangements to change into appropriate clothing.  A student may be placed in the office to work until appropriate clothing is obtained.  If a student repeatedly disobeys the dress code, disciplinary actions may result.
