Dress Code Reminders


Good Morning Woodson. I’m Dr. DiSalvo
Good Morning Woodson students and I’m Dr. Hewan. Summer seems to be hanging
around and so does summer clothing. Please be reminded of the following SR
&R regulations around appropriate dress. We have had to ask some students to
cover up or change clothes so we want to review the dress code policy from
Fairfax County Public Schools and it reads : All students are expected to dress
appropriately for K through 12 educational environment. Any clothing
that interferes with or disrupt the educational environment is unacceptable.
Clothing with language or images that are vulgar , discriminatory, or obscene or
clothing that promotes a legal or a violent conduct such as gang symbols, the
unlawful use of weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or drug paraphernalia or
clothing that contains threats is prohibited. Clothing should fit , be neat
and clean, and conform to standards of safety, good taste, and decency. Clothing
that exposes private areas or an excessive amount of bare skin is
prohibited. Examples of prohibited clothing include
but are not limited to sagging or low-cut pants,
tube or halter tops, studded or chain belts, clothing constructed of
see-through materials and head coverings, unless required for religious or medical
purposes. We have been seeing clothing such as tube tops like this in the
hallways which are inappropriate and show excessive skin and halter tops such
as this example are also not allowed.
So a principal may provide additional examples to his or her school community
that are approved by the regional superintendent . Discussions about dress
code violations will be held privately and maintain the dignity of the student.
Parents of the student requests requiring accommodations for religious
beliefs, disabilities, or other good reasons, should contact the principal.
Students not complying with this code will be asked to cover the non-compliant
clothing, change clothes, or go home. Repeated infractions will result in
disciplinary action. Thank you for your time Woodson. Thank you for listening.
