The responsibility for the appearance of the students rests with the parents and the students themselves. They have the right to determine students’ dress, providing the attire complies with the health code of the Commonwealth, and does not interfere with the educational process or pose a threat to the safety of the student or others. Student dress will reflect positively on the students, school, and learning environment, and should ultimately reflect standards of dress in the workplace at large.

Dress that is disruptive, distracting, or revealing is not acceptable. The school administration reserves the right to make decisions concerning questionable and inappropriate school attire. If contacted by the school administration, parents may be requested to come to the school to exchange unacceptable clothing.

Students shall comply with individual dress codes established by their school. Individual schools in Williamsburg-James City County may establish requirements for students to wear uniforms while in attendance during the regular school day.
