Dress Code

Evergreen, Iroquois, and Rockford Christian

We expect that students wear clothing appropriate for school. Appropriate dress is a matter of both recognizing that our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit and recognizing that we are part of a community. Clothing considered distracting, indecent, or inappropriate will not be allowed. Teachers have the right and responsibility to act and communicate with parents when a student’s appearance becomes distracting or inappropriate.

Parents should help children understand that modesty and appropriateness are key guidelines for choosing what to wear to school. Therefore, students should not wear shirts, pants, or hats with inappropriate pictures or slogans; should not wear clothing that is too tight or too short; or wear items not in good repair. Students may not wear shorts that are shorter than mid-thigh and must have straps on shoulders that are at least two fingers in width. Headwear may be worn in class. Headwear will be removed during prayer, devotions, and any other situations requested by an adult.

When violations or questions arise, students are given alternate clothing to wear and a parent is contacted to bring in alternate clothing to change into. 

Grand Rapids Christian Middle School

We recognize that a student’s dress is an opportunity for them to share their unique personality and culture. GRCMS desires to both celebrate each individual student and to maintain a standard for student appearance that preserves and promotes a positive and appropriate self image, respect for others, and a Christian learning environment. The purpose of our dress code is to help students recognize their important role in building a professional learning environment here at school. Dress is an important part of this role. 

The style and manner in which a student dresses while attending school and school-related functions is largely the responsibility of the student and the parent/guardian. GRCMS reserves the right to decide what is proper and fitting for school wear, in accordance with the GRCS policy. It is important for students to wear professional dress that is appropriate for the classroom and activities at school. 

  • Students must wear a shirt and pants, shorts or a skirt and shoes 

  • Fabric must cover private parts and not be see-through or tight fitting 

  • Clothing must cover undergarments and private parts

  • Hats, hoodies and other headwear must allow the face to be visible and not interfere with the line of sight to any student or staff. Students should not wear hoodies in class or chapel. 

Examples of clothing not considered appropriate for school include, but are not limited to:  

  • Clothing that causes substantial disruption, is deemed to create an unsafe learning environment, or causes substantial interference with the educational process or the orderly operation of the school. Some examples of items that could be disruptive include but are not limited to costumes, flags, signs, and athletic equipment.

  • Clothing or accessories advertising alcohol, tobacco, drugs or other inappropriate-for-school messages is also unacceptable. 

  • Clothing or other visible symbols that promote or degrade a political candidate or party are prohibited. Instead, the school is committed to providing venues for safe and meaningful political discussions. 

  • Spandex shorts

  • Clothing that exposes the stomach

  • Mesh or sheer shirts

  • Tank-style undershirts

  • Body art with any inappropriate-for-school messages must be covered during the school day and at school functions. 

When students are out of compliance with this policy, appropriate attire will be found for the student for the remainder of the day and parent/guardian contacts will be made as needed. 

We expect that our students should come to school in clothing that is appropriate for the activities in which the students are involved and the climate/weather conditions.
