Dress, Grooming, and Conduct Standards

Dress and Grooming Code

The Glenn J Kimber Academies does not require uniforms, but it does have a strict dress and grooming standard. This standard helps maintain a positive and moral atmosphere, insures modesty and cleanliness, guards against students becoming “inappropriately casual,” and invites the Spirit of God into the classroom. The following guidelines are examples, but may not be all-inclusive.

YOUNG LADIES

Young ladies should wear clean, modest clothing in good condition and without holes. They should avoid appearing sloppy or inappropriately casual, which means: NO sweat shirts, T-shirts, light colored blue jeans, sweat pants, pajama bottoms, parachute pants, or camouflage clothing.

Articles of clothing which are tight or form-fitting, sleeveless, strapless, backless, see-through or otherwise revealing (including crop tops, midriffs, or blouses with more than the top button unfastened) are unacceptable. Clothing must remain modest while sitting, standing, or working at the desk. Hip-huggers are unacceptable. Dresses and skirts must cover the knees when sitting, and have no slits extending higher than the knee. Shorts are not allowed except while participating in sports. No negative, vulgar, immodest or inappropriate pictures, sayings, numbers or messages are allowed on clothing or other belongings. Hair should be clean and neat, avoiding extreme styles or colors.

Shoes should be worn at all times. Flip-flops, slippers, roller blades, and shoes with rollers in the soles, are unacceptable. Earrings are limited to one per ear, with no other body piercing acceptable. Hats or hoods are not to be worn in the classroom.
