Dress Code

Dress Code

The Fresno Unified School District endorses the principle that dress and grooming of students is the responsibility of the student and parent or guardian and that good taste and good grooming are part of the learning process.  It is expected that all students shall attend school dressed and groomed in a manner that is conducive to the creation of a good learning environment.  Dress and grooming of students that obstructs, inhibits, or tends to detract from the instructional program, or creates safety concerns, shall be prohibited.  According to law, "A pupil who goes to school without proper attention having been given to personal cleanliness or neatness of dress may be sent home to be properly prepared for school."  Parents of students who do not come with the proper attire to school will be contacted.  A change of clothes may be requested and/or parents will be informed of the dress code violation.   Frequent dress code violations may result in disciplinary action for the student.
