Is there a dress code at Anne Frank?

We expect our students to dress in an appropriate manner at all times. Though we do not require uniforms at our academies, we encourage students to dress in a professional manner at all times. Student dress may not present a health or a safety hazard, violate municipal, county, or state law, or present a potential disruption of the educational process. Generally, we do not allow: 
  • Spandex, stretch cotton shorts, skirts, or dresses that measure more than three inches above the top of the kneecap when in a kneeling position
  • Torn, frayed, see through, or mesh clothing—even if worn over appropriate clothing
  • Spaghetti-straps or shirts and dresses with less than three inches of a sleeve
  • Clothing that exposes any part of the wearer's midsection, even if covered with or by appropriate clothing
  • Clothing with any logo, writing, symbols, or numbers that reflect violence, malicious behavior, offensive language, sexual innuendo, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or anything otherwise considered disruptive or gang related
  • Excessively baggy or large coats and sagging pants (i.e. gang-related, trench, or “goth” styles). We define "excessively baggy" as pants being bunched at the waist under a belt, pants with a low-hanging crotch, pants that cover the feet of the wearer or drag on the floor
  • Non-prescription dark glasses worn on the face or head, hats, caps, or other headgear unless designated for a specific purpose
  • Exposed body tattoos and piercings (we allow up to two earrings per ear)
  • Students on school property or at any school activity to wear, possess, use, distribute, display, or sell any clothing, jewelry, bandana, emblem, badge, symbol, sign, or other item perceived as evidence of membership in or affiliation with a gang

At Anne Frank Elementary we encourage parent involvement. Please visit our News page for information about how you can help Anne Frank offer our students more experiences, or take some time to introduce yourself to your child’s teacher and let him or her know that you’re interested in getting involved. Parents can also support their child’s education in some basic ways, including:
  • Encouraging your child to get plenty of sleep
  • Offering a healthy diet, including a good breakfast
  • Helping your child get up in plenty of time for school
  • Providing neat, clean, comfortable clothes
