DRESS CODE FOR STUDENTS
Students are to dress in a manner that is appropriate for a Christian school. Cleanliness, neatness, and modesty are the standards. Dress should not be a distraction to the learning atmosphere of the classroom. Mt. Pleasant Christian School reserves the right to make decisions on what is appropriate to wear and what isn't. When in doubt, choose not to wear articles of clothing that are questionable.
Athletic shoes are to be worn for recess and PE. Shoes should be secure enough that they do not come off in normal PE activities. Students without appropriate shoes will not be allowed to participate in PE or recess, and this will affect their PE grade.
Students may not wear tank tops, sundresses, short tops that expose the midriff, low-cut tops, sleeveless tops or dresses, tight pants, flip flops or slip on sandals. The whole shoulder must be covered at all times. Hats or hoods may not be worn indoors.
T-shirts with inappropriate pictures or messages may not be worn.
Skirts or shorts must come to the knee. (Fingertip length shorts are acceptable in pre-K and kindergarten.) If skirts are worn, shorts should be worn underneath.
Sweat pants made from sweatshirt material are not allowed in grade 4 and above. Warm up (athletic style) pants may be worn.
We do not consider that leggings are an appropriate substitution for pants. Form-fitting pants (leggings or extra tight jeans, etc.) may be worn only with a dress that comes to the fingertips or longer. They may not be worn with a long T-shirt or sweatshirt.
Jeans that fit appropriately and do not have holes or fringes are acceptable. Pants must be high enough and shirts long enough that no back is exposed while sitting down.
Hair coloring that is not a natural color for hair is inappropriate for school. No irregular shavings are allowed.
Pajamas should be reserved for special Spirit Days.
No part of any undergarment should be seen.
A student with a dress code violation should be spoken to by the teacher. If the offense is repeated, the teacher should send home a dress code violation note to be signed. If the clothing is too short or tight, we will do our best to find appropriate knee length shorts for the student to wear. Middle school students may be given a referral for repeated violations.
