Student Dress Code

Douglas High School's Dress Code  

At Douglas High School we work to prepare students for life after school. Part of that effort is establishing a dress code appropriate for a high school learning environment. A student's personal appearance should be a matter of pride. School is considered the training place for students who plan to enter the work world of professions, business, and industry. We rely upon parents' good judgment and discretion as to what your student should wear to school. We understand that styles change, and as they do the administration of Douglas High School will make the final decision as to the appropriateness of any attire and decide if it violates the school dress code.

Clothing/Accessories:                                                                                                       

  • Must not depict inappropriate or negative pictures, messages, symbols lettering or anything deemed inappropriate or unsafe.
  • There can be no depiction of sex, alcohol, drugs, or weapons.
  • There can be no gang-related clothing, symbols or lettering on students' personal belongings. This includes bandanas.
  • Tattoos with inappropriate or gang-related symbols must be covered.
  • DHS Administration will approve pajamas, slippers, and other "spirit wear" in advance in connection to Student Council.

Bottoms

  • Excessively short shorts or skirts are not appropriate for a high school learning environment.
  • Pants/shorts/skirts must not expose undergarments or the buttocks.
  • Administrative discretion will determine appropriateness.

Tops

  • Shirts must not expose undergarments and must have sleeves.
  • Must be long enough to tuck into pants, shorts, or skirts.
  • Should not expose areas of the stomach, side, lower back, or chest.
  • Administrative discretion will determine appropriateness.

Students who are out of dress code will be allowed to change into PE clothes or will receive a loaner shirt/shorts. Multiple dress code violations will result in a disciplinary referral. The administration of Douglas High School will make the final decision as to the appropriateness of any attire and decide if it violates Douglas High School's dress code.
