Appropriate Dress Code

It is expected that all students at Corning Union Elementary schools maintain a neat and orderly appearance.  A student's dress and general appearance should not draw undue attention, nor should it detract from or interfere with learning in the classroom or discipline within the school.   For elementary students, it is most important that their clothing be comfortable, safe, and appropriate for school.
  • Shoes: Closed-toe and heel shoes such as tennis shoes are required.  Musical and roller shoes are not appropriate for school.
  • Shirts: Shirts that are longer than the pants pockets must be tucked in.
  • Pants: Pants must fit appropriately around the waist.  Sagging is not permitted.
  • Hats: May be worn only outdoors (per guidelines listed to the right).  Hats may not be worn indoors in any area.
  • Hair: Hair shall be clean and neatly groomed.  Hairstyles that are extreme or distracting such as Mohawks or unnatural colors are not appropriate for school.
