STUDENT DRESS/CONDUCT CODE
We have adopted a uniform dress code for students in Kinder-8th grade. The following is a list of the specific guidelines for our dress code, as set up by an open committee of parents, teachers and administrators:
The required dress code for Borman
Elementary School students includes a Borman Astros spirit shirt, navy blue polo, light blue polo, grey polo, or white polo, and plain blue denim jeans, khaki, or navy blue (shorts, pants, or skirts).
Visible undershirts must be white, gray, navy blue, or light blue. Undershirts must be plain, free of visible designs. Jeans must not have holes.
Shorts, skirts, or skorts must be knee length. All clothing must be properly hemmed. No cut-offs. No baggy or oversized uniforms are acceptable. Sagging is not allowed.
Shoes must be closed-toed and must meet the P.E. safety requirements. Sandals or flipflops are not allowed.
Bandanas, caps, hats, and hairnets are not to be worn on campus. Outerwear emblems and patterns are acceptable as long as they are appropriate.
Any fashion styles or fads that detract from the educational process will not be allowed. The school administration will make the final decision on dress code issues. Astros spirit shirts are on sale in the school office.
Parents will be required to sign a form stating that they will conform to the uniform policy. If a student violates the uniform policy, the office will issue a notice to the parents, which must be signed and returned to the office.
Hair and eyebrows should not be styled to promote negative reactions or be a distraction from the educational process. Decisions on unusual hairstyles will be made by the administration on an individual basis. There are no restrictions on hair accessories, as long as these are in good taste. Bandanas will not be permitted.
Students may not wear excessive jewelry or inappropriate offensive designs. The “THREE” rule is used here.... three rings, three bracelets. Small earrings in pierced ears are permitted, but the "THREE" rule holds for each ear. *Hoop style earrings must be small because they could be ripped out during play if too large, and they are a distraction as well. Additionally, there is a maximum of THREE facial piercings allowed as well (this includes a tongue piercing).
*NOTE Consequences: Inappropriate, oversized, or dangerous jewelry will be removed and returned to a parent only. Excessive jewelry will be removed and returned to a parent only. NOTE: The school is not liable for lost, stolen, or damaged jewelry, and we discourage the wearing jewelry, particularly any of per sonal or great value for this reason.
