Student Dress Code

All students are expected to wear clothing that is appropriate for school. Clothes shall be sufficient to conceal undergarments at all times, and should not expose a student’s chest or stomach. Clothing that is sheer, revealing, or resembles an undergarment should not be worn to school. Pants and shorts must cover undergarments at all times. Students will wear appropriate clothing. NO clothing that references sex, drugs, alcohol, tobacco or weapons will be allowed.

No gang attire: Gang related apparel is not permitted and may not be worn or displayed. Students known to be affiliated with a gang or act in a manner that supports an affiliation with a gang will be placed on the “No Red/No Blue” list. Determination is at the discretion of the principal and/or in consultation with County Probation, Woodland Law Enforcement, and WJUSD. Any student determined to be attempting to display, support, or acknowledge a gang affiliation will also be strictly prohibited from wearing ANY red or blue apparel. This applies to shirts, pants, shoes, shoelaces, hats, belts and/or any other item that can be deemed to be gang related. Any apparel, jewelry, accessory, school materials or manner of grooming denoting membership in a gang is prohibited (CA Ed. Code §35183). Tattoos that are obviously gang related, such as the name of a gang, gang language, or reference to a gang are forbidden, and will have to be covered while at school.

Additionally, continued displays or actions which can be seen as gang affiliations will lead to disciplinary action under Ed Code 48900.4:
 
…a pupil enrolled in any of grades 4 to 12, inclusive, may be suspended from school or recommended for expulsion if the superintendent or the principal of the school in which the pupil is enrolled determines that the pupil has intentionally engaged in harassment, threats, or intimidation, directed against school district  personnel or pupils, that is sufficiently severe or pervasive to have the actual and reasonably expected effect of materially disrupting classwork, creating substantial disorder, and invading the rights of either school personnel or pupils by creating an intimidating or hostile educational environment.
 
For student safety, the principal may determine that ALL students must adhere to the NO RED/NO BLUE policy. At the start of the school year and until notice is given by the principal, students must adhere to the NO RED/NO BLUE policy. CCHS discourages any clothing that is predominantly red or blue on campus, or at any school events off campus. The principal has the authority to determine if a garment is inappropriate, and, if so, may direct a student to change that garment.
 
Dress Code Violation
 
Students who are not appropriately dressed for school will be given an opportunity to call home for a change of clothing. When possible clean shirts may be available in the office to loan for the day. If we are unable to reach a parent or guardian the student will remain in the office for the day or in the Student Support Center. Students who repeatedly violate the dress code will receive progressive discipline consequences. Please take care to see that your student is appropriately dressed when they leave for school.
