GBHS Dress Code
Guidelines: Parents or guardians of students have the primary responsibility for establishing and implementing appropriate standards of dress and grooming. It is Granite Bay High School’s legal and ethical responsibility for establishing a classroom and campus atmosphere that creates the appropriate environment for teaching and learning. Clothing worn on campus must reflect good taste and a sense of modesty to enhance an atmosphere conducive to learning. The dress code is a tool to ensure that education can take place. By using common sense and good taste students will avoid any problems.
· Extremes in clothing are regarded as disruptive and as a distraction from the learning process and are not permitted.
· Clothing with messages, pictures, or symbols depicting drugs, alcohol, tobacco, profanity, violence or disrespect for members of the opposite sex or differing cultures is regarded as offensive and intimidating and therefore, is not permitted.
· Accessories such as studded or metal belts, wristbands, chains (including wallet chains), and handcuffs are regarded as disruptive, intimidating and dangerous. These items are not permitted.
· Failure to comply with dress code guidelines and policy is considered a Level 2 infraction as outlined in Standard Disciplinary Consequences.
