DRESS CODE FOR FORMAL AND SEMI-FORMAL EVENTS AND DANCES:

 

Boys: Normal attire would be a suit or sport coat, dress slacks, dress shirt and tie, and dress shoes. If the weather is too warm, the suit jackets or sport coats would be optional. For formal dances, tuxedos are appropriate but not required. Handbook grooming codes apply.

 

Girls:

 

The following guidelines are to be followed when selecting proper attire for formal and semi-formal  events such as, but not limited to, prom and homecoming. The modesty guidelines for the girl’s policy are taken from Pure Fashion, an international faith-based program designed for girls 14 – 18 to help young women rediscover and reaffirm their innate value and authentic femininity.

 

  • NO CLEAVAGE SHOULD BE VISIBLE; FRONT OR SIDE

  • NO STRAPLESS DRESSES

  • The neckline should not be lower than four fingers below the collarbone

  • The fabric should not be sheer, very thin, or spandex

  • The backs should be modest, dipping no lower than the natural waist, and there may be no gapping.  The back must be secured by straps, illusion fabric, etc.

  • Any slit in the dress should be no higher than the knees

  • Dress length should not be any shorter than four fingers above the top of the kneecap

  • Spaghetti and halter tops are acceptable following the guidelines from above concerning cleavage

 

Let the clothing be an advertisement of your dignity as a young lady. Walk, stand and sit with dignity. Think of yourself as a person who deserves respect. Ask for it by dressing in a dignified manner.
