2017-2018 Uniform Policy

Student Dress Code
Our requirements are based on comfort, modesty, safety, and consistency of expectations for a learning environment. STUDENTS SHOULD DRESS FOR SUCCESS!  ALL SHIRTS MUST NOT BE BELOW FINGERTIPS!  If so, they will need to be tucked in.  All uniforms should fit appropriately and be laundered regularly.

The following are dress code requirements:

Girls:

  • Royal blue, navy blue, light blue plain colored polo (no logo, name brand or ornamentation)
  • Royal blue, navy blue, light blue polo with Carlile logo 
  • Royal blue or light blue Carlile t-shirt 
  • Royal blue or light blue Carlile hoodies 

Students may wear pants of their choice as long as it is within district dress code.  Uniform tops (see above) are required.

Students may wear pants of their choice as long as it is within district dress code.  Uniform tops (see above) are required.

The following MAY NOT be worn to school:

  • Short shorts or skirts (no more than two inches above the knee)—these are distracting to the learning environment

  •  "Spaghetti strap" tops or dresses (straps must be wider than 3 fingers) or sun suits—these are distracting to the learning environment
  • Sagging pants or shorts—these are distracting to the learning environment--PARENTS WILL BE NOTIFIED AND REQUIRED TO BRING A BELT OR PANTS/SHORTS THAT FIT APPROPRIATELY. Belts with extra material that hangs excessively low toward the knees.
  • Shirts with logos other than that of Carlile (i.e. name brand)—these do not comply with the dress code
  • Makeup, such as eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, or lipstick or temporary tattoos are not acceptable—this is distracting to the learning and social environment.
  • Hair color cannot be unnatural-no colored hair, hair goo, spray or sparkles. Body piercing of lip, tongue, eyebrow, nose or belly is not allowed. Artificial fingernails—these make it difficult for the child to write or use a computer.
  •  Any other clothing or hairstyle (i.e., “faux-hawks higher than 1”-2”, any hairstyle that is cut like a Mohawk, unnatural hair color) considered distracting to learning by the school staff—this is distracting to the learning environment.
  • Other dress code requirements include:
  • Tight-fitting shorts and pants, such as Lycra, knit, and stirrups, are acceptable if worn under other clothing with the seat covered.
  • Hats, hoods, kerchiefs, gloves, sunglasses, and other outdoor items are not to be worn inside the school, but may be worn during recess when the weather makes them necessary.
  • Baseball-style caps are not allowed unless it is a school wide spirit day.
  • All shirts, unless they are banded at the bottom (i.e., sweatshirts) are to be tucked into the student's shorts, pants, or skirt at all times during the school day.
  • COATS/”HOODIES” ARE NOT TO BE WORN DURING CLASS TIME (8:00-3:10) UNLESS THEY ARE A CARLILE or PLAIN colored HOODIE (navy blue, light blue or royal blue with no logos) Repeated violations can result in suspension for defiance/disrespect. All hooded sweatshirts must be form-fitting (not too big). Students may store coats in the lockers. If there is a concern about hanging the coat or other item in the locker due to its value, we ask that you send the child to school with one that is less likely to be stolen.
  • Please be sure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather. During warmer months, sandals should be worn with socks to avoid foot or toe injuries on the playground. Please avoid wearing large hoop earrings that can be accidentally pulled off during PE classes.

Carlile has a very strict student dress code.

Repeated violations may result in disciplinary action.
