TK Stone Dress Code
The following are the guidelines for TK Stone school attire:
No headwear (hats, bandanas, etc)
No sleeveless, tank, spaghetti strap, or halter tops
No tight or revealing tops
No clothing that promotes drugs, cigarettes, alcohol, violence, gangs or vulgarity
No torn clothing, see-through clothing, or clothing with holes
No heavy chains, dog collars or other jewelry that can be deemed dangerous or
No tattoos, facial piercings, or ear gauging allowed (traditional ear piercing is permitted)
No items of underwear may be worn as outerwear at any time.
No shorts/miniskirts can be shorter than the top of a student’s knees
No cutoffs, side slits, tight biker shorts, baggy clothing that can result in indecent
exposure (Slacks and shorts should be worn at the waistline.)
No sweat pants, wind suit, nylon, velour or knit athletic pants or shorts
No coats may be worn inside the classroom.
*Due to safety concerns, students will not be allowed to wear backless shoes.
Individual expression by hairstyle and color should not be disruptive to the educational process. Hair
should be a normal color (blonde, brunette, red or black). Hairstyles should be maintained by what the staff
feels is clean and a non-disruptive style.
If a teacher feels that a clothing style is in violation of the dress code or substantially disruptive to the
education process, the teacher will follow the policies outlined under T.K. Stone’s discipline policies. This
will involve having the student alter the style or call the parents for a change of clothing. The right to wear
particular types of clothing may be taken away from students who violate the dress policy. Our dress code
is based upon common sense and reason. If you are in doubt concerning what may or may not be worn to
school, ask your teacher, your counselor, or a principal. They will be glad to help.
A dress policy cannot be written to address every situation presented. This policy is not intended to be an
exclusive list of permitted or prohibited items of dress. If a student's dress and appearance is, in the opinion
of school authorities, inappropriate for our school environment, the student will be instructed to correct the
problem before attending class. If a question arises about an item of dress, or if a student or parent
wants to question whether or not an item is appropriate, the Dress Code Committee may meet to
decide whether the item is appropriate.
