To ensure safety and encourage an environment focused on learning, it is expected that all students attending FVHS will maintain an appropriate appearance for school. In every case, the dress and grooming of a student shall not cause actual distraction from or disturbance in any school activity or actually interfere with the participation of a student in any school activity, create a hazard to the safety of self or others, and/or create a health hazard. Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all times.
Garments with profane, suggestive language or with double meanings of lewdness, obscenity, violence, vulgarity, or that advertise unlawful services or products to minors may not be worn. Clothing/apparel containing symbols, or pictures and/or slogans oriented toward degrading or discriminating against a person’s culture, race, gender, sex, religion, or ethnicity are not permitted.
Students with distracting clothing, hairstyles, accessories and/or makeup will be asked to make modifications in their appearance. Students are expected to adhere to the following guidelines when selecting clothes for school:
• The midsection of the body must be covered at all times. No bare midriffs.
• Examples of unacceptable upper garments include: brief garments such as jogging, halter, crop, tube, or see-through tops, spaghetti straps, bandeaus, plunging necklines (front and back), cut up clothing, bathing suits and strapless or backless garments.
• Pants and shorts must fit snugly around the waist. Sagging pants or shorts showing undergarments are unacceptable.
