Dress Code


Students must be dressed appropriately for school.  Clothing must be neat, clean, in good repair, and provide proper body coverage.  Shoes must be worn at all times.

1st Offense: correct the problem (headgear will be taken);   2nd Offense: meet with administrator and student contract; 3rd Offense: parent conference.

Students are prohibited from wearing the following:

  • Hats and sweatshirt hoods may NOT be worn while students are in the classroom or office. Bandannas and hairnets are not allowed on campus.

  • Clothing or jewelry that promotes or depicts gangs, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, violence, criminal activity, obscenity, or have sexual content.

  • Accessories, jewelry or personal items with inscriptions that by virtue of color, arrangement, trademark, universal meaning or any other attributes, express or advocate racial, ethnic, or religious prejudice.

  • Any attire disruptive to the instructional process, including but not limited to:

  • Pants or shorts that sit below hip level
  • Bare midriffs
  • Strapless tops
  • Low cut tops
  • Short shorts/skirts
  • Tight or revealing clothing
  • Clothing which allows underwear to be exposed
  • Sunglasses (except as prescribed by a doctor) inside the school buildings
  • Male students may not wear white sleeveless undershirts as outerwear


No list of dress guidelines for students can be written that will anticipate all potential dress and grooming extremes.  In the case of questionable dress that is not specifically covered in the list above, the school personnel will make the final decision.  Appropriate action will be taken at that time, and when necessary, a home contact will be made seeking parental cooperation and assistance.  Depending on the circumstances, items may be confiscated, alternative clothing may be loaned, a warning given, a parent contacted, a parent conference convened, or a student may be suspended.

The school administration retain the sole discretion to make the final determination as to whether clothing, jewelry, and/or accessories meet acceptable standards.  

Parents may be expected to pick up a student who is inappropriately dressed.

Brea Canyon High School will provide alternative clothing for the student to wear during the duration of the school day.
