Dress Code

Policy

There is a strong relationship between good dress habits, good work habits, and proper school behavior. Students are encouraged to dress in a way that demonstrates pride in themselves and Sinaloa Middle School. The dress code was not created to interfere with a student’s free choice but to ensure that our student’s first priority while at school is learning!

In accordance with the Governing Board we believe that appropriate dress and grooming contribute to a productive learning environment. As our school dress code is in compliance with our Board Policies and Administrative Regulations, we expect our students to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to wear clothes that are suitable for the school activities in which they participate. Students have the right to make individual choices from a wide range of clothing and grooming styles, but they must not present a health or safety hazard or a distraction which would interfere with the educational process.  (Simi Valley Unified School District | AR 5132 Students)

Specific Sinaloa Dress Code Guidelines:

Sinaloa faculty and administration support fashion choices appropriate to the educational setting. Students’ attire should be comfortable, and enable them to participate in a wide array of educational activities.

Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal a student’s private body parts at all times. See-through fabrics, halter tops, backless shirts, or any clothing that, through the normal range of motion would reveal private areas of the student’s body, are prohibited.

  • Undergarments are not to be worn as tops or bottoms at any time. Bralettes, sports bras, boxers, etc are not considered tops or shorts and must be covered by another garment. 
  • Backless tops and dresses are not permitted.
  • Any clothing with logos or images of a sexually or violently suggestive nature, drug or alcohol-related references, or products that are not age-level appropriate for our site are prohibited. Examples: Cookies Brand Merchandise, Playboy, Backwoods or any brands deemed inappropriate by school administration. 
  • No clothing with phrases or slogans that are deemed inappropriate by administration will be permitted. Example: “I like hot moms/dads”, etc.
  • Articles of clothing or jewelry that pose a threat to the safety of the student or others shall not be worn on campus or at school activities.        
  • Shoes must be worn at all times and must have enclosed heels or a heel strap for safety reasons. No slippers, flip-flops, or similar footwear. 
  • Clothing and jewelry shall be free of writing, pictures or any other insignia which are crude, vulgar, profane or sexually suggestive, or which advocate racial, ethnic or religious prejudice, the use of drugs or alcohol or any illegal activity or which bear drug, alcohol, or tobacco company advertising, promotions and likeness.    

The administration has the right to determine if attire is inappropriate for school or any school activity.  Violation of the dress code will result in appropriate disciplinary action including but not limited to the following: student changing clothes, parent notification, detention, and/or parent conference. Please remember, if it is not appropriate to wear or have at school, then it is not appropriate to wear ON your clothes.
