Dress Code


Bullard High School has adopted the following Dress Code Policy in accordance with the Fresno Unified official dress code (AR 5132); it will be strictly enforced at school and for all school-related activities, both on and off campus. Exceptions to the dress code may be made by the Principal for special days or special events.

Educationally Appropriate Dress and Appearance

The responsibility for the dress and appearance of a student rests primarily with the student and their parents or guardians. In the interest of maintaining an appropriate learning environment, the district believes in the following basic principles:

·      All students are encouraged to dress in a manner that is appropriate, comfortable and conducive to an active academic school day.

·      Students should be able to wear clothing without fear of or actual unnecessary discipline or body shaming.

·      The student dress code should serve to support all students to develop a body-positive self-image.

·      The district standard dress and appearance policy is gender neutral and applies to all students equally regardless of gender on school campuses and at school-sponsored functions and will be enforced consistently and fairly by all members of the school staff.

·      Clothing and hair styles are a matter of personal choice.

Student Identification

Every Bullard High School student must wear their valid B.H.S. Student I.D. Card around their neck while on campus (lanyards will be provided to every student). Students must carry a valid B.H.S. Student I.D. Card at all school functions.

·      Clothing where the torso is exposed, i.e., tube tops, half shirts, halter tops
