Dress Code Policy

 

 

Parents and students, please read the Dress Code Policy. 

 

Dress Codes are an important part of the climate of schools. At the Bridge, it is no different. Our goal is to always provide an environment that is free of distractions, safe, orderly and conducive to learning. Please review our dress code policy, which can be found on pages 31-32 on the student handbook. The student handbook can be found on the school website.  

If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 951-928-8498. Thank you for your support of this effort and we look forward to working with you during the coming school year.

 

Dress Code

 

Nuview Bridge Early College High School believes that there is nothing inherently wrong with certain types of dress or color of dress, but when students’ dress serves to intimidate or impede the rights of other students, it will be determined that such dress is in violation of the District’s dress code policy.  Students may not remain at school dressed in a manner that creates a safety hazard for either them or for others, constitutes a serious and unnecessary distraction to the learning process, and/or tends to disrupt the campus order. Student dress should conform to recognized standards of decency, safety, modesty, and cleanliness. A student who comes to school without proper attention having been given to personal cleanliness or neatness of person or dress may be sent home to be properly prepared for school or shall be required to properly prepare for the classroom before entering. When it becomes apparent to the administration that a fashion statement or style becomes intimidating, dangerous, anti-social, or gang-related, the administration reserves the right to prohibit such items or modes of dress.

 

Undergarments

Undergarments are to be covered by outer garments at all times. Bras and muscle shirts are considered undergarments. Absence of undergarments is not permitted.

Shoes

Shoes must be worn at all times. Bedroom slippers are not permitted.

 

Jewelry and Accessories

Chains, spiked necklaces, bracelets, or rings, belt buckles, or other dangerous objects or jewelry that can readily be used as a weapon may not be worn or carried. Clothing or accessories that are likely to provoke acts of violence, create a clear and present danger, disrupt instruction or incite students maynotbe worn. Sunglasses may not be worn indoors or in classrooms (Prescriptions accepted). Wallet chains are not permitted of more than 6in. length.

 

Blankets are not permitted during the school day

 

Inappropriate Clothing

 

Students are expected to wear clothing that is appropriate for school. Garments that are a distraction to the educational environment are not permitted. Examples of inappropriate items include, but are not limited to the following:

1.  Bare midriff or bathing suit tops

2.  See-through clothing and tops with oversized neck or arm openings

3.  Low cut or revealing blouses or shirts (tops must have straps and be considered within the bounds of good taste as determined by any professional adult)

5.  Overly baggy and/or saggy pants

6.  Sleeveless undershirts, muscle shirts.

7.  Pajama bottoms (not during pajama day).

8.  Dresses, shorts and skirts too short to be considered beyond the bounds of good taste as determined by any professional adult (generally the fingertip rule will be applied, however, it should be noted body types are different and what may be appropriate on one student may not be on another).

9.  Any clothing, accessory, jewelry, badge, moniker, belt buckle, emblem, symbol, or sign with Iron Cross, swastika or other hate symbols will not be allowed and clothing that the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department has identified as current gang attire is restricted and cannot be worn on campus.
