SFCMS Student Dress Code for 2020-2021

  • Dress Code for Students:

    While students are encouraged to abide by the uniform dress code as described in the SFCMS student handbook, the uniform is optional for the 2020-21 school year. In its place, the following rules apply for student dress at school:


    Dress Code:

    • No dresses, skirts, or shorts shorter than 2 inches above the knee.
    • No sagging pants allowed.
    • Leggings, yoga pants, or any other skin-tight clothing will be considered undergarments and must be worn with appropriate dress attire which comes to no more than 2 inches above the knee.
    • No undergarments should be visible at any time. 
    • Tank tops must have straps that are at least 2 inches wide at every point.
    • No belly shirts or muscle shirts permitted.
    • No clothing that shows cleavage.
    • No sheer or see-through fabric in tops or bottoms unless it has solid fabric underneath it; this includes but is not limited to, crochet, lace, sheer or knitted fabrics.
    • Hats, toboggans, bandannas, hoods, do-rags, or other head coverings are not permitted to be worn (Exception - religious headwear).
    • No bedroom attire or bedroom shoes.
    • No inappropriate signs, emblems, or language on clothing or face coverings.
    • No wallet chains or chains on clothing.
    • No sunglasses will be worn, including wearing them around the neck, on the head, face, or on an item of clothing.
    • No spikes on shoes, clothing, or accessories.
    • Shoes must be worn at all times and cover both the toe and heel.
    • No distracting hair colors or styles are allowed (excessive and bright colors are distracting).
    • Coats and jackets can be worn in the building to and from school and class but they must be removed once in the class.
    • Accessories that are considered by the administration to be distracting or disruptive are prohibited (for example overly large earrings).
    • Since lockers will not be utilized, students may carry a backpack during the school day.
    • Students will not need to dress out for PE.  However, they are expected to wear athletic shoes on PE days.

    If a student is in violation of the dress code, parents will be contacted. Continued violations of the dress code will result in a disciplinary referral.
