Dress Code and Appropriate Dress Guidelines
The Standard Mode of Dress and Guidelines for Appropriate Dress combined with school rules and the academic programs will promote a positive and productive learning environment. These guidelines apply to attendance while at school and may apply to all school activities, including but not limited to after-school activities and events, and off-campus activities, such as school field trips. Throughout the school year, Mr. Jarmon may designate days that students will be allowed to dress down, or out of uniform; however, students must adhere to the guidelines for acceptable student dress. Such days will be communicated to parents.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO ADHERE TO THE STANDARD MODE OF DRESS.
Hampton's Uniform Guidelines:
TOPS: Plain, solid color, collared shirts (polo style or button down) in school colors (white, navy blue, light blue and black). All shirts must be tucked in.
BOTTOMS: Pants, shorts, skorts, and skirts in khaki, black, or navy. All pants, shorts, skorts, and skirts must be worn appropriately at the waist, and should be knee length. Bottoms should be accompanied by a belt if necessary.
SHOES: Shoes should be closed toe and closed heel for safety reasons.
Appropriate Dress Guidelines (Dress Down Days):
- All pants must remain at the waist; belts preferred to assist a waist fit. Pants should not appear several sizes too large. Sagging pants presents a safety hazard.
- All shirts and blouses must not have exposed midsections, and no exposed under-garments. Students are not permitted to wear spaghetti straps, halter tops, bare midriff, tube tops, strapless tops or boxer shorts unless the purpose of wearing these items serves as unseen garments.
- Shorts, skirts and skorts should be at knee length.
- Intentionally altered clothing (i.e. split pant legs, cut up shirts, etc) is not permitted.
- No scarves, "do rags", headbands, wristbands, hats or bandanas of any type are allowed on the school grounds, school functions, or school buses. Exceptions to this include items required for health, safety, or religious purposes. Documentations is required for proof of this exemption. School staff members are expected to confiscate this attire.
- No slippers or bare feet are allowed. Students are recommended to wear close-toe shoes. Students may not wear flip-flops, or wear their sneakers or boots untied or any other shoe that presents a safety hazard. For safety purposes, students may be excluded from certain activities if they are not dressed properly.
- Jewelry and other accessories (such as cell phones) that present a risk to the general welfare of other students or that present distractions in the learning environment are not allowed.
