Dress Code

 The staff of the Winship-Robbins Elementary School District has established the following guidelines for what students should wear to school. This is not an exhaustive list, but is to be used as a guideline for appropriate dress during school. The goal of any dress code is for students to focus on their schoolwork and not on what is to be worn to school, or to be a distraction to other students. If a student comes to school dressed inappropriately, the parent may be called to bring clothing for the child to change into or the student may be asked to put on school-provided clothing or belts as needed.
 
  • Hats, caps, visors, or hoods should not be worn inside the building.
  • Tank tops may be worn if they are close-fitting around the arm and not “see-through”.
  • Spaghetti strap tops and bare-midriff styles (belly-button showing) should not be worn.
  • Shoulder straps should be a minimum of 1 inch wide.
  • Students may wear shorts to school, but they must be hemmed.
  • The length of dresses and shorts must reach to the students’ finger tips when her arms are extended.
  • Student clothing which advertises or promotes drugs, alcohol, or tobacco, or products containing these substances is not to be worn.
  • Armband, insignias, buttons, or clothing which are obscene, vulgar, or disruptive, are not permitted.
  • Pants that are saggy, falling down, and/or made or pajama material should not be worn.
  • Shoes must be appropriate for physical education so, that excludes flip flops, shoes with heels, shoes with wheels, and backless shoes.
If you have any questions regarding the dress code, contact the Principal. Please use the rule of thumb: If in doubt, don't wear it!
