Dress Code

  • The purpose of the McKinley dress code is to support a safe learning environment. Clothing may not disrupt the learning environment.

    No clothing, jewelry, accessory etc. will be allowed which defames, degrades, or offends a culture, religion, or gender, or that depicts in any form, profanity, violence, drugs, or alcohol.

    Students should wear clothing that is appropriate for school and allows students to safely participate in playground and P.E. activities. The acceptable length for dresses, shorts, skorts, and skirts is mid-thigh (at finger tips) or longer. Hats may not be worn indoors. Spaghetti straps, bare mid-drifts, or overly baggy clothing are not appropriate at school.

    For safety reasons, all shoes must be enclosed all around (heel, toe, and sides). Shoes must be worn at all times on campus. Flip-flops, house slippers, or sandals are not permitted. Shoes with retractable wheels and motorized items are not allowed on school grounds at any time. Students without safe shoes will be asked to phone home for appropriate shoes to be brought to school.

    No makeup allowed except for Halloween and school-established performances. No extreme hair length, haircuts, or hairstyles that would disrupt or interfere with the education process or safety of students.
