PERSONAL ITEMS AND DRESS CODE

Electronic Equipment, Personal Cameras, Cell Phones, iPods, etc.

Personal electronic equipment is allowed to be used by students before the school day, during lunch, and after school. All other times of the day they should be shut off and kept in the studentsí pocket or locked in their lockers. Examples of these items are cell phones, electronic games, iPods, MP3 players, etc. Students may use personal e-reading devices such as a Nook, Kindle, tablet or iPad for educational purposes with approval from their teacher. Students using or displaying prohibited personal electronic equipment during the school day will have the item confiscated and brought to Main Office where it will be returned at the end of the day. Subsequent incidents will result in the need for a parent to come and pick up the item Ė the student is responsible for notifying their parent that the item has been confiscated and needs to be picked up.† Personal cameras are not allowed on school grounds. Electronic devices are not allowed in the locker rooms.



Dress Code

All SMS students are expected to be dressed appropriately for school, school activities and events. The School District of Superior respects the right of students to express themselves; however, that right is limited by the need to maintain a safe and orderly school environment and to respect the rights of all members of the school community.† The school administration will have the final decision on any clothing issue in question.

SMS recognizes a studentís individual appearance is mainly the responsibility of the student and parents. However, any article or manner of dress that may cause the educational process to be disrupted or presents a safety issue is not acceptable.
  • NO clothing with slogans or advertisements pertaining to drugs, alcohol, tobacco, profanity, racial connotations, or sexual innuendos is allowed.
  • NO hats, bandanas, hoods are allowed during the school day.
  • NO exposed midriffs (belly); shirts must cover the midriff on all sides.
  • NO strapless garments are allowed unless they are covered by a shirt, jacket or sweater.
  • NO shirt exposing cleavage will be permitted. (A good guide is clothing should not be lower than a straight line between a studentís armpits.)
  • Straps such as those found on tank tops, muscle shirts or spaghetti straps must cover undergarments at ALL TIMES.
  • All clothing must conceal undergarments. Shirts that reveal undergarments, due to transparency, length, or lack of coverage are NOT permitted.
  • The length or skirts and dresses cannot be shorter than the length of oneís fingertips when arms are at the sides. Shorts must cover the entire bottom (the buttocks).
  • Students must wear footwear at all times. During classes such as art, technology education, physical education, and science, students may be required to change footwear and/or remove jewelry temporarily to address safety concerns.††
  • Any form of attire which is indicative of gang affiliation is prohibited.

A student with inappropriate dress will be asked to change to appropriate dress or he/she will be sent home. Flagrant abuse will result in additional disciplinary consequences.
Policy plan for dealing with any of these issues:
  1. Teacher informs students of dress code violations and requests them to fix violation.
  2. If a student refuses to fix violation, teacher sends the student to the administrator.
  3. Change clothing of issue (if student has other clothes) or a call home for more clothes. If that doesnít work then,
  4. Student uses clothes from the SMS Clothing Closet.
  5. No compliance results in either ISS for the day or suspension according to administratorís decision.
