Ramona Middle School Dress Code
Ramona Middle School expects that all students will dress in a way that is appropriate for the school day or for any school-sponsored event.  Student dress choices should respect the District’s intent to sustain a community that is inclusive of a diverse range of identities.  The primary responsibility for a student’s attire resides with the student and their parent(s) or guardian(s).  The school is responsible for seeing that student attire does not interfere with the health or safety of any student and that student attire does not contribute to a hostile or intimidating atmosphere for any student. 
  •  Students must wear
  • A shirt (with fabric in the front, back, and on the sides under the arms), AND
  • Pants/jeans or the equivalent (for example, a skirt, sweatpants, leggings, a dress, or shorts), AND
  • Shoes (must have closed toes and strap)
  • Students may wear, as long as these items do not violate Section 1 above:
  • Hats facing straight forward or straight backward. Hats must allow the face to be visible to staff (hats and hoods shall be removed at the request of staff members)
  • Hooded sweatshirts (face and ears must be visible to school staff)

  • Violent language or images (including depictions of weapons)
