Dress Code

Students are expected to dress and be groomed in such a way as to not distract or cause disruption in the educational program or orderly operation of the school. Personal appearance of students should promote health and safety, contribute to a climate conducive to teaching and learning and project a positive image of the District to the community. Students should dress for the educational setting and not the recreational one. The principal may create further guidelines regarding student dress which are consistent with the guidelines below.

Specific Requirements of GMA:

In the event the administration determines a student’s dress is inappropriate for school in accordance with this policy, the administration will either require the student to change or will inform the student not to wear the garment to school again. Repeated violations of the dress code will be treated as disruptive behavior in violation of the District's Behavior Code.

Physical Education Dress Code:
Students are required to dress out every day in a physical education uniform. Dressing out for PE is a requirement due to safety and hygiene purposes. Tennis shoes or sneakers with socks are required. No boots, crocs, or open-toed shoes. And, we encourage that jewelry not be worn.
