Dress Code – BCHS 17-18

I wanted to share the dress code for 17-18 before everyone does their back to school shopping! Please note the changes are in RED.

Hope everyone is having a great summer! Go Herons!!!


APPAREL AND GROOMING

With the rapidly changing styles of clothing, it is impossible to specify everything which is acceptable for student dress.  A good rule to follow is that if there is doubt concerning the appropriateness of your clothes for school, DO NOT wear them until you check.

The administration of BCHS has the authority to make judgments on inappropriate apparel and dress at any time. Students refusing to comply with administrative requests may be suspended out-of-school for up to 10 days.

Clothing with holes above the knee is not permitted on the Brantley County High School campus. The outermost garment worn will cover all undergarments (i.e. pants will cover underwear and shorts completely).

For girls, dresses, skirts, jeans, shorts, and slacks are appropriate for school wear.  For attire regarding length:  1) Shorts can be no shorter than 2 inches above the kneecap. Splits must be no shorter than 2 inches above the kneecap.  2) Dresses and skirts shall not be any shorter than 2 inches above the knee when standing.  Splits in dresses and skirts shall be clearly no shorter than 2 inches above the knee.  Also, with all clothing, the highest point of visible skin shall clearly be no higher than 2 inches above the knee. 3) Extremely tight garments (i.e. yoga pants) must be covered to the end of the fingertips (when hands are placed straight down the side).

For boys, jeans, slacks, shorts, sport shirts, jerseys, and tee shirts are appropriate.  For attire regarding length:  Shorts should be no shorter than 2 inches above the kneecap.  Also, with all clothing, the highest point of visible skin shall clearly be no higher than 2 inches above the knee. Splits must also be clearly within fingertip length. Button type shirts should be properly closed and belts will be buckled.

Headwear, which includes hats, caps, headbands, handkerchiefs, combs, hoods, and the like, will not be worn in the building during the school day. Shoes are required at all times.

The following are prohibited:

  • Holes in clothing above the knee

  • Sheer apparel

  • Bare midriffs

  • Extremely tight garments

  • Strapless tops

  • Low necklines

  • Tank tops

  • Racer back tops
