Modest and appropriate dress is an expectation at Jason Lee Middle School just as it is in a place of business. Inappropriate dress or appearance which causes disruption of the education process, or presents health/safety problems, is not permitted.
Apparel and accessories depicting and including (but not limited to) the following are not allowed at Jason Lee: weapons, violence, drug/alcohol/tobacco-related, vulgarities, insults directed to a particular group (e.g., ethnicity, culture), innuendo, gang-related and sexual suggestiveness.
Also not allowed on campus (except for documented medical conditions and religious requirements): chains, long belts or bandannas (any color); pajamas (including non-soled slippers); sagging pants; bare midriffs; short shorts/skirts (must be approximately below fingertips); less than one-inch-wide shoulder straps; halter tops; low necklines/armholes; and racer-back shirts. Shoes are to be worn at all times. Undergarments should never be visible.
Hats and hoods are not worn at school. Once the student enters into the school building, at the start of the school day, they may not wear any head apparel until they exit the building at the end of the school day. Sunglasses may be worn outside on sunny days but should not be worn inside the building. Gloves are allowed outside in the courtyard prior to school starting on cold days (two gloves worn at a time).
When in doubt about your attire, ask a teacher or principal for approval. Students inappropriately dressed will be asked to change or call home for a change of clothes. Repeat offenders will be subject to the steps of progressive discipline (e.g., phone calls home, detentions and suspension).
