Free Dress – Dress Code
On occasion, students are permitted to dress in free dress as a reward. It is expected that all students at Currie Middle School maintain a neat, clean and orderly appearance. A student’s dress and general appearance should not draw undue attention, nor detract from or interfere with learning in the classroom or the discipline in the school.
To eliminate misunderstandings in the dress code regulations, the following dress standard will be enforced daily and when we have free dress:
* All clothing must fit appropriately.
* All shirts must have sleeves that cover the shoulders.
* Shirts must always cover the midriff area and undergarments must never show. Remember to consider your body movements.
* Shirts may not be longer than your fingertips with arms extended downward. Longer shirts must be tucked in.
* No clothing with professional or college sports logos identified by law enforcement as gang related.
* No clothing or accessories associated with ‘tagging’ or with gang symbols.
* Pants and shorts must be fitted at and worn at the waist with no exposed undergarments. Remember to consider your body movements.
* No holes, slits or splits in pants above the knee.
* Shorts, skirts and dresses must be at least mid-thigh length with an inseam of at least 6” for shorts and a length of at least 15” for skirts.
* No sleepwear including pajamas, pajama-style pants, or slippers.
* No trench coats, chains (including wallet chains), or bandanas.
* No clothing or jewelry may be worn with suggestive or questionable language and/or drawings oriented toward violence, degrading cultures, ethnicity, gender, religion, ethnic values or glorifying sex, drugs, alcohol, or tobacco.
* Appropriate school shoes must be worn at all times. Shoes must have closed toes and closed heels.
* No hats or head coverings (unless medically or religiously required), including hoods.

* No temporary body art, face paint, or drawings on body.
* Belts may not dangle and may not have initial buckles or buckles with sharp edges.
* No clothing, accessories or jewelry deemed inappropriate or gang related, as concluded by school administration or law enforcement agencies
If students attend school dressed inappropriately, they will be asked to change into their P.E. clothes or loaners for the remainder of the day. The confiscated clothing will be released according to progressive discipline. Repeat violators will be subjected to disciplinary action.
As part of the Uniform Policy, each student is expected to bring a backpack to school every day. If students are unable to provide a backpack, the school will provide upon request. The following tools for academic success are encouraged: 3-ring binder, filler paper (college ruled) spiral notebook, eraser, pens, and pencils.
Consequences for not bringing a backpack to school:
* First Offense: Warning

* Third Offense: Referral, Saturday school and/or one day on-campus suspension, parent contacted, and student placed on social probation for five weeks
* Fourth Offense: Referral, one day off-campus suspension, parent contacted, student placed on the school behavior contract, which includes social probation for five weeks.
