Pants: Students may not wear jeans, sweatpants, or other pants that are skintight, distressed, ripped, or “skinny”.  Yoga pants, jeggings, cargo pants, or leggings are never permitted. Shorts are permitted since we are in summer dress code for the week of September 4th only.

Dresses must not be skin tight, sheer, sleeveless, ripped, contain cut-outs, or revealing in any way. The only permissible skirts that ladies can wear are maxi skirts.
