Dress Code

Columbus Elementary Dress Code Policy

Columbus Elementary School has a voluntary school uniform consisting of navy blue or khaki bottoms(pants, shorts, scooters/skorts), and white shirts. School t-shirts may be purchased through the school. We encourage all students at Columbus to wear the school uniform. This dress code has been established to encourage a positive atmosphere for learning at Columbus Elementary School.

Students are expected to adhere to the following dress code standards:

  • No gang-related attire/clothing.
  • No unfitted clothing such as baggy or oversized pants, belts, shirts, tops, etc.
  • No bandanas, kerchiefs, hair nets, or hats (other than Columbus hats).
  • No clothing or jewelry that depicts or promotes drugs, alcohol, or tobacco use.
  • No clothing or jewelry that contains anything crude, vulgar, profane, sexually suggestive, or promotes any form of prejudice or violence.
  • No revealing clothing including short shorts, low neckline/backline, strapless, short midriff-baring shirts, or see-through clothes.
  • No make-up, jewelry, or anything else that is disruptive to the learning environment or may pose a safety hazard.
  • No unsafe shoes (open-toed shoes/sandals, high heels, platforms, etc.). For safety reasons, socks and tennis shoes are recommended. 

Dress code violations will result in the following actions:

  1. Parents/guardians will be contacted and asked to bring appropriate clothing to the office. Students will wait in the office until new clothing arrives.
  2. Students may be sent home to change or disciplined for continual defiance.
