Dress Code

Dress and grooming should be appropriate for learning and fit in the school situation.

“A pupil who goes to school without proper attention having been given to personal cleanliness or neatness of dress, may be sent home to be properly prepared for school, or shall be required to prepare himself (herself) for the schoolroom before entering.” (California Administrative Code, Title 5, Division 2, Section 302)

Dress code violations will be documented and can receive progressive disciplinary action, including detention and in-school suspension.

The following minimum standards shall be enforced in the Corona- Norco Unified School District in order to meet the requirements of the California Administrative Code regarding grooming, dress, and appearance and the Education Code regarding free expression:

  1. Any clothing, makeup, hairstyle, or wig that has been demonstrated to contribute to the substantial disruption of the orderly operation of the school is inappropriate/unacceptable for school attire. Dress should be suitable and comfortable for normal school activities. Clothing should correspond with the demands and purpose of the activity in which students participate. Clothing should be clean and in good repair.
  2. Skirts and shorts shall be worn at an appropriate/acceptable length for sitting as well as standing so that undergarments shall not show (review “Helpful Dress Code Guidelines” below).
  3. Pants must fit at the hip so they will stay on without a belt.
  4. Under garments shall not show.
  5. Pajamas can only be worn on school-designated dress up days.
  6. Footwear must be worn at all times and have hard soles. (Slippers are not appropriate)

***Helpful Dress Code Guidelines***  Follow the “Rule of Thumb” when checking the length of shorts/skirts by having your student place their arms at their sides and ensuring the bottom hem of their shorts/skirt sits lower than the tip of their thumb. 

Apparel with emblems, printing, etc., that are obscene, libelous, or slanderous, or that incite students as to create a clear and present danger are not permitted on campus and may not be worn.

  1. Strapless, halter tops, or tube tops
  2. Bare midriffs (NO skin showing)
  3. Undergarments showing
  4. Chains or weapons (chains such as those attached to belts or wallets present a safety hazard.)
  5. No Shirts
  6. Lack of undergarments
  7. Shirts, tops, or sweaters unbuttoned below the sternum.
  8. Bottoms that show skin or underwear above the thigh.
  9. Bathing suits (except in the swimming pool areas and locker rooms)
