Dress Code

It is the intent of JT Moore to provide an environment that is safe and comfortable for all students. Students are free to maintain their personal expression without fear of unnecessary shaming or disciplinary action. However, to maintain a safe, respectful, and orderly environment, the following guidelines must be followed:

  • Students must wear hard bottom shoes that completely cover the foot at all times to protect against injury from people or inanimate objects
  • Students must wear shirts that do not expose the chest, back, shoulders, or stomach.
  • Students must wear Pants/Shorts/Skirts/Dresses that do not expose undergarments, buttocks, or other private areas; Clothing such as shorts, skirts, dresses, etc., must be appropriate that their parents have purchased and approved of.
  • Students can only wear clothing, accessories and jewelry that do not promote violence, drugs, alcohol, sex, degradation or discrimination of any kind.
  • Hats, caps, and hoodies cannot be worn to school or at school.
  • Bandanas are not permitted on school property at any time.

It is the responsibility of the parent to clothe their child if the child loses his/her dress code privileges. A student can lose his/her dress code freedoms at any point in the school year. Thus, we ask that parents monitor the dress of their children each day to ensure that their children are following these dress code guidelines.
