Mill Creek High School strives for a standard of excellence in all we do. In an effort to maintain this standard, we encourage students to present themselves in a way that promotes excellence in dress. The guidelines below have been created to help students make informed decisions when deciding what to wear to school. The clothing that students select to wear should not diminish our daily academic focus. Our instructional environment is disrupted when a student has to be referred to an administrator for dress that does not promote excellence and pride. If a student is dressed in a style that does not follow the guidelines below, based on the discretion of a school administrator, the student will be asked to correct the situation and change. Failure to comply will result in a discipline consequence. (Special Circumstances must be submitted in writing to the Principal.)
Clothing that does NOT promote an image of excellence is an outfit that:
- Shows cleavage
- Shows midriff
- Shows bottom/backside
- Shows upper thighs
- Shows undergarments
- Includes head covering such as hoodies or hats (unless approved for religious purposes)
- Includes inappropriate pictures or text
- Includes clothing that is considered pajamas or sleepwear
Health and safety regulations require that shoes be worn at all times at school.
It is essential that students respect the learning environment by being appropriately dressed for school. The purpose of the student dress code is not to inhibit any person's taste in attire, but ra ther to better facilitate the process of education through reasonable guidelines of dress, instilling dignity and pride.
