The Litchfield Elementary School District recognizes that each student's mode of dress and grooming is a manifestation of personal style and individual preference. Our dress code policy is intended to provide guidance for students, staff, and parents and promote safety and a positive learning environment.
Student dress shall not:
- Present a hazard to the health or safety of the student or to others in the school.
- Materially and substantially interfere with school work, create disorder, or disrupt the educational program.
- Cause excessive wear or damage to school property.
- Include any type of clothing, accessories and/or jewelry that is worn with the intent to convey affiliation with a criminal street gang defined in A.R.S. 13-105.
Discriminatory or obscene language or symbols, or symbols of sex, drugs, or alcohol on clothing are prohibited.
Students may wear clothing, accessories and jewelry that display religious messages or religious symbols in the same manner and to the same extent that other types of clothing, accessories and jewelry that display messages or symbols are permitted.
