What is the Dress Code at Pershing?

Students usually exercise good judgment in their choice of what to wear to school. Clothing appropriate for the beach, a picnic or recreation is not appropriate for school. Students out of dress code are given alternative clothing to wear for the day and assigned consequences.

The following is a brief list of inappropriate dress:

  • Student attire should not advertise or advocate the use of alcohol,drugs, tobacco, weapons, or gang affiliation. This also applies to garments with writing or pictures that are obscene, suggestive, sexual, mean-spirited, or violent.
  • Shoes must be worn at all times. Slippers are not allowed.
  • Half-shirts, crop tops, low necklines, straps less than 2", tube tops, sleeveless tops with large armholes, and racer back tops are not to be worn.
  • Shorts and skirts must be as long as the students' fingertips when the students' arms are placed at their sides. Students are encouraged to wear shorts or leggings under skirts.
  • Pajamas are not permitted to be worn at school.
  • Clothing must fit neatly at the waist without sagging.
  • Muscle shirts may not be worn.
  • Clothing must cover undergarments completely.
  • Bandanas, chains and spiked clothing or jewelry may not be worn.
  • Hats, sunglasses, and gloves are not to be worn during instructional time unless for religious or health reasons. (A note regarding health reasons must be on file in the health office.)
  • Sweatshirt hoods may not be worn during instructional time and may only be worn outside if it is raining.
