Dress Down Day Policy

“Dress Code” for GHLS  Dress Down Days 

5th-8th grades



“Dress Down Days” (DDD) are one day per month, usually on the last Friday of the month.  On DDD, school uniforms need not be worn.  Students are to follow the clothing rules below, however.  Please help us by making sure your child follows them to the letter.  Students not dressed properly will need to have the correct clothing brought to them. They will not be allowed in class. A great rule of thumb:  If in doubt, leave it out. Here is what can/can’t be worn: 

PANTS:  Regular uniform, Dockers-style, cargo pants, khaki’s, or nice jeans. Belts do not need to be worn as long as pants are up and stay up. Athletic and sweat pants are allowed. Pants that have rips but are permanently patched are allowed. Otherwise no pants with rips in them are allowed. No stretch or tight-knit pants like leggings or jeggings.  No shorts.  No pants with offensive/objectionable images or words. 

SHIRTS:  Polo shirts, button down shirts, nice T-style shirts, GHLS shirts, hooded knit shirts, but hood may not be worn in school. Shirts cannot be see-through or revealing (chest/midriff, or shoulders). No tank tops.  No shirts can have offensive/objectionable images or words. 

SWEATERS/SWEATSHIRTS:  Button down, pull-over, or zippered sweaters/sweatshirts.  Sweaters/sweatshirts with hoods, but hood may not be worn in school.

SHOES:  Regular school shoes, casual shoes, crocs, tennis shoes (no wheels).  For all shoes/footwear, toes must be covered and protected.  Heals must be covered or have a strap.  Slippers, flip-flops, slides, and open-toed sandals are not allowed. No footwear can have offensive/objectionable words or images. 

HAIR:  Girls may wear headbands, scarves, etc. as long as they are not hanging in the face or below shoulder length. No unnatural colors. No offensive/objectionable images or designs. No hats of any kind are allowed. No dew rags.

Teachers may ask a student to remove any item they feel is not meeting the guidelines above, is offensive or objectionable, or that is a distraction to the student him/herself or to other students.
