Student Dress Code & Personal Electronic Devices

Student Dress Guidelines

Students are expected to dress appropriately for a K-12 educational environment.  Any clothing that interferes with or disrupts the educational environment is unacceptable.

 

Examples of unacceptable clothing include, but are not limited to clothing that exposes private parts or undergarments; sagging or low-cut pants; shirts or tops with openings that do not adequately cover the torso or shoulders; clothing constructed of see-through materials; and hats or other head coverings unless for religious or medical purposes. Clothing with language or images that are vulgar, discriminatory, or obscene, or clothing that promotes illegal or violent conduct, such as the use of weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, gang symbols, or drug paraphernalia or clothing that contains threats is prohibited.

 

Additionally, disciplinary action will be taken against any student taking part in gang-related activities that are disruptive to the school environment, which include the display of any apparel, jewelry, accessory, tattoo, or manner of grooming that, by virtue of its color, arrangement, trademark, or any other attribute, denotes membership in a gang.

 

Students not complying with this policy will be asked to cover the noncomplying clothing or change clothes and may not be permitted to return to class until their clothing is in compliance.  Parents/guardians of students requiring accommodation for religious beliefs, medical purposes, or disabilities should contact the principal.

Personal Electronic Devices

Students and staff may use Personal Electronic Devices (including but not limited to laptops, tablets, smartphones, and e-readers) connected only to the KGCS wireless network for academic purposes at the discretion of the school administrator and classroom instructor. At Sealston Elementary School, all devices must be turned off and kept in backpacks unless permission to use has been obtained from the teacher.

Please refer to the KGCS BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy for more information about electronic devices.

  • The privately owned electronic device owner is the only person allowed to use the device.
