Summary: Dress Code
SVHS has a dress code that is based on the principle that school is a professional work environment. All student attire must be appropriate so that it does not detract from the learning process. No low cut, transparent, backless or strapless garments are allowed. Midriffs and/or exposed undergarments are not allowed. Skirts, shorts and pants must be an appropriate length and fit so as not to detract from classroom instruction or inhibit movement (fingertip length or longer). Shoes must be worn at all times. Any clothing (including hats) that promotes gangs, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, guns or violence, is sexually explicit or suggestive, uses profane or abusive language, or debases and/or exploits a group is not allowed. Pants must be fastened at the waist and may not expose undergarments. A predominance of any color may be considered to be gang affiliation (Dodger blue or 49er red) and/or contributing to an unsafe school environment. Hats may be worn in class as permitted by the teacher. If a student violates the dress code, he/she may be asked to change clothes or may be sent home for the remainder of the day. Repeated dress code violations will result in detentions and/or further disciplinary action.
