Dress Code

ERHS Dress Code

East Ridge High School administration and teachers expect students to present themselves in a manner that is respectful and appropriate. Students’ clothing should not offend others, cause embarrassment to them, present a health hazard, or create a disruption in classes.

Dress Expectations

Please note: Building principals will make the final decision on dress code violations including items that are inappropriate for school but not mentioned in this policy. If necessary, parents will be notified and asked to come to school to either pick up their student or bring proper attire.

The following expectations will be enforced:

  • For health and safety reasons, students are expected to maintain hygienically clean attire.

  • Student clothing is required to cover a student’s “personal and private” areas - including the chest, midriff, groin, and buttocks.

  • Students are not to wear clothing that is provocative in nature, reveals undergarments, or worn in a manner which is offensive or distracts from the educational process. No low cut fronts, backs or sides, visible underwear, low-cut backs, low-cut fronts, bare midriffs, or bare stomachs are allowed. Some examples of inappropriate clothing may include, but are not limited to, halter, tube and transparent tops, pants and shorts with holes in them, high slit dresses/skirts, and dresses or shorts of inappropriate length.

  • Students are to keep coats and jackets in their locker.

  • Students are to keep large book bags, duffel bags, and purses in their locker.

  • Students are not to wear clothing that includes words, graphics, or innuendo which are obscene, vulgar, abusive, or discriminatory (some examples may include, but are not limited to, ethnic, racial bias, sexual, or sexist remarks/images), or which promote or advertise weapons, alcohol, chemicals, tobacco, or any other product that is illegal for use by minors. Examples: Confederate flag, swastika, guns or ammunition, Playboy bunny, alcohol logos, and tobacco logos.

  • Students are not allowed to wear hats, caps or any headgear (hats, du rags, hair nets, skullies, handkerchiefs, etc) during the instructional day 8:35 a.m. to 3:05 p.m., except with the approval of the building principal (i.e., student undergoing chemotherapy, medical situations, religious).
