THE FOLLOWING DRESS REQUIREMENTS WILL BECOME ACTIVE POLICY BEGINNING SEPT. 6th
LOCKERS AND SECURING CLOTHES - Individual lockers will be issued/provided for students. Students must secure their lockers and their belongings with their own padlocks (combination or keyed). Students must not share lockers with other students. It is imperative that students secure their belongings with a padlock while in class.
DRESSING-OUT - All students are required to dress-out for physical education classes. Uniforms as pictured, may be purchased at the BX. If students do not wear the desired uniform, they must wear other similar attire of solid black or solid navy shorts and a solid white or light grey t-shirt. Shirts of other colors and with graphics or text (besides Lackland, Stacey, Armed Forces, or sports logos) are not acceptable. Students should keep in mind that their dress in class is intended to allow them to perform and move efficiently and safely and not for making a fashion statement. Points will be deducted from a students grade for non-compliance to these dress standards.
SAGGING - Shorts must not extend below the kneecaps or be worn below the hips or waistline. Waistbands must be secured by either elastic or a drawstring above the hips at all times. The crouch of the shorts will not be allowed to be worn at mid-thigh or reach lower on the legs. Undergarments that can be viewed publicly in class at anytime will result in an immediate removal from class activities and the individual will be assigned an after school D-Hall for each occurrence thereafter.
EXCESSIVELY SHORT - Shorts must not be inappropriately short. A student may be removed from class activities if not corrected and issued a warning and the individual will be assigned an after school D-Hall for each similar occurrence thereafter.
ATHLETIC FOOTWEAR -Athletic type shoes that are either a court type, cross-trainer type, or running type shoe must be worn to class and secured on the feet (shoestrings or velcro closures securely tied/fastened). Hiking boots, skateboard type shoes or other footwear not conducive to running, jumping, pivoting, changing directions or performing other activities that are typically covered in a physical education class will not be permitted.
PROPER FITTING - Clothing should fit students appropriately. Grossly over-sized t-shirts or shorts and/or extremely tight shirts or shorts (no spandex form fitting nylon) will not be permitted. Shirttails must be tucked-in the waistband of the shorts. A student may be removed from class activities if not corrected and issued a warning and the individual will be assigned an after school D-Hall for each similar occurrence thereafter.
JEWELRY - Jewelry may not be worn to class (with the exception of watches). A student may be removed from class activities if not corrected and issued a warning and the individual will be assigned an after school D-Hall for each similar occurrence thereafter.
NOT DRESSED-OUT - Students who do not dress-out for class will still be expected to participate in activities; however, they will receive a "0"/zero for their dressing out grade and only receive partial credit for this hindered participation (sixty points deducted from participation grade). Students who select to not participate or who are wearing school clothing that makes participation unreasonable will be given zero credit for the day's activities and will be required to observe class activities. Students who do not dress out because they do not have their clothes will be issued a warning and the individual will be assigned an after school D-Hall for each similar occurrence thereafter.
INAPPROPRIATE / UNACCEPTABLE DRESS - Students who choose not to wear desired uniform or the acceptable alternative to the desired uniform, wear clothes in an appropriate manner, or wear clothing that does not fit properly will consequently have points deducted from their "dressing out" grade. The amount of points deducted from their dressing out grade will be 25 points for each violation and could possibly total 100 points off for multiple violations. If in the judgement of the teacher/s, the student's dress represents a safety risk to themselves or to others or if their dress is disruptive to class, the student may be removed entirely from participating in that day's activities and thus given a "0"/zero for the day and the individual will be assigned an after school D-Hall for each similar occurrence thereafter.
MARKING CLOTHING WITH NAME - In the event that clothing is lost or taken by others, it is always wise and strongly recommended that students have all items marked with the student's name in a permanent marker.
