Bellevue Dress Guidelines



Students are to be neatly dressed and well groomed at all times. Certain styles of dress are considered to cause disruptions to the school day and will be dealt with accordingly. As it is impossible to include every fad or inappropriate item of clothing, the administration reserves the right to interpret the appropriateness of student dress. The following statements apply to all students at school and at any school sponsored event.
  • Bottoms including shorts, pants, skirts, and skirted jumpers must be the appropriate size with the waist of the garment worn at the student’s natural waistline. Clothing that is too tight or too loose will not be considered appropriate. Belts are required if the garment has belt loops. Shorts and/or skirts must be no more than 2 inches above the knee.
  • Shoes must be tied or properly fastened at all times.
  • Headwear may not be worn on campus. This includes but is not limited to bandanas, rags, combs, hats, or hair curlers. Weather related headgear is permitted to and from school.
  • Students/parents may request an exemption or special consideration based on bona fide religious beliefs and/or medical purposes or disabilities. School principal and/or superintendent may only grant exemptions.
