Dress Code

Students at Del Norte observe standards of dress that are appropriate for the best possible educational experience.  Students and their parents/guardians may determine personal appearance and dress except where such dress or appearance presents a health or safety hazard, a violation of city or state law, or a disruption to the educational environment.

Del Norte students’ dress is expected to be neat, clean and appropriate, both at school and at school-related activities. 

  • Students must wear shoes at all times.

  • No highly distractive or altered clothing, such as, but not limited to, torn or shredded jeans or shirts; tank tops must have at least a 1 1/2” strap; halter tops, tube tops, off-the- shoulder or low-cut clothing; see-through clothing; tight or short shorts or skirts; bike shorts; bare midriffs; metal belt buckles with any initials; belts hanging longer than two inches from the fastener.  Pants:  cannot be sagging to the point that they allow undergarments to be visible to sight

  • No pajamas or slippers except on designated spirit days.

  • No skin showing between the bottom of a shirt/blouse and the top of pants or skirts. 

  • All attire must be as long as an extended arm and fist when standing up straight.

  • No clothing/jewelry/tattoos displaying gang, drug or alcohol-related wording, pictures or insignias, or profane, vulgar, sexually suggestive or abusive/violent or otherwise in appropriate language / symbols / graphics.

  • No clothing in “uniform colors” or with symbolism and/or insignias which suggest illicit behavior, gang affiliation, harassment or abuse. 

  • If the staff and administration feel that clothing identifying groups or gangs causes disruption at school, or causes personal danger to the wearer, that person or persons directly responsible will not be allowed to wear said clothing.  Disrespect or bigotry toward any group is not acceptable.

  • No headgear of any kind, e.g., hats, caps, bandanas, sweat bands, hair nets, etc., or sunglasses in any building, with the exception of after-school, district-sponsored athletic events in the gym. Hats must be worn with bill facing forward.

  • No spiked jewelry, belts, bands, or chains.                                             

  • No clothing bearing the names and insignias of the Insane Clown Posse (ICP) or any other team or group that is deemed gang related.  No “In Memory of “ shirts. 

  • Any clothing or accessory which is deemed inappropriate, distracting or impeding the educational process will result in a directive to immediately cover or remove clothing item or accessory.

  • Anything gang related as per the APS student Behavior Handbook will not be tolerated.

  • Consequences for violating the student dress standards are addressed in the Knight Code.

As a rule of thumb, follow the rule of the 4 B’s and a C:  No bellies, no butts; no bra straps; no boxers; and no cleavage.  If these are showing, you are out of dress code!
