Hamilton Dress Code
Students are expected to come to school each day, dressed in a manner that does not interfere with learning. The dress code is not intended to be all inclusive. Any clothing item that is deemed disruptive to the learning environment or dangerous to students will not be allowed.
General Clothing Guidelines
Hamilton students are expected to be in dress code while they are on school property.
- Clothing, buttons, jewelry, or other items, which contain vulgar words or pictures, or promote the use of alcohol, drugs, illegal substances, profanity, derogatory statements, racial/sexist slurs, gang affiliation, weapons, or sexual content, will not be allowed.
- All clothing is to be free of holes, rips, slits, and cuts unless tights are worn underneath.
- All clothing must be worn so that any undergarments do not show.
- Jackets, coats, backpacks, string bags, purses, sunglasses, and hats are to be removed when entering the building and remain in lockers during the school day. The only exception for bags would be when transporting PE clothes to and from the locker room.
- Bandanas of any color will not be worn or brought to school.
- Headphones, earbuds, etc. need to be out of site when entering the building.
Shirts & Blouses
- Shirts and blouses must cover the shoulders, upper chest, and must be long enough so as not to show any skin in the waist area.
- See-through clothing is not allowed.
- Hooded sweaters and sweatshirts are allowed as long as the hood is down while in the building.
- Cutoff sleeved shirts, without anything underneath, are not allowed.
Pants, Shorts, Skirts, Skorts, and Jumpers
- Pants are to be worn at the waist. No low rise pants.
- Shorts, skirts, skorts, and jumpers will be no shorter than fingertip length.
- Sagging (wearing of pants below the waistline) will not be allowed.
- Leggings, yoga pants, or stretch pants are only allowed if worn under a skirt, shorts, or a long shirt.
- Shoes are required for health reasons. Shoes must have soles.
- We strongly encourage parents to refrain from allowing students to wear shoes with a heel higher than 2 inches to school, in the event of an emergency situation.
Students choosing not to be in dress code will be sent to the office and arrangements will be made to correct the issue. Students will be assigned in-school suspension if the dress code issue is not able to be resolved.
