Gateway School Dress Code
As as explained in the student behavioral expectations, all members of the Gateway community are expected to dress appropriately. The following specific guidelines must be adhered to:
Students may NOT wear:
-Any article of clothing that displays or describes alcohol, tobacco or any illegal or controlled substance.
-Any article of clothing with profane or explicit language or that displays any inappropriate graphics.
-Any pajama-type pants or tops, or other sleeping attire.
-Any form of slippers or "house shoes."
-Large chains such as those attached to wallets.
-Jeans or any pants that have tears or holes larger than one inch. NO holes or tears may be above the knee.
-Any clothing, jewelry or other item that is gang-related or shows affiliation with any inappropriate organization.
Female students must also adhere to the following rules:
-Skirts and shorts must reach at least the length of one's fingertips when arms are held normally at the side.
-No halter tops may be worn.
-Shirts may not expose midriffs.
-Undergarments must not be able to be seen through clothing.
-Any sleeveless tops must have straps that are at least two finger-widths wide.
-Clothing may not be too tight or revealing.
Male students must adhere to the following:
-No sleeveless shirts may be worn. This applies to undergarment-type tank tops as well as athletic tank tops.
-Pants must be worn at the waist and secured with a belt if needed.
-Undergarments must not be visible either through clothing or at the top of pants.
Consequences for dress code infractions:
- The first time a student arrives at school dress inappropriately, he/she will be issued a warning by administrative staff. Parents will be notified.
- The second infraction will result in the student being required to resolve the situation by correcting the infraction.
- The third and subsequent infractions will result in the student being placed into ISS and assigned to detention or Saturday School to make up class time.
- Other consequences, including those outlined above (including OSS) will be applied. Students who repeatedly violate dress code will be subject to an administrative hearing with parents present to discuss the student's status in the program.
