Uniform and Dress Code

The Dress Code, as outlined in the BCPS Code of Conduct, addresses issues related to the safety of students. It represents a cooperative effort between the Board, the CEO, school principals, and the students of City Schools.

The following outlines specific clothing/garments that are prohibited:

  • No clothing designed or altered to expose undergarments or parts of the body except arms or legs, as defined throughout these rules, is allowed.
  • No undergarments worn as outerwear are allowed.
  • No apparel printed with vulgar statements or statements promoting the use of drugs, alcohol, or violence is allowed.
  • Slippers, thong sandals and flip-flops are not allowed.
  • No hats, scarves, bandanas or bonnets are allowed.
  • No pajama-type attire, undershirts, or other bedtime attire is allowed.
  • No mini-skirts, halter tops, tank tops, muscle shirts or see-through tops are allowed.

All students are expected to adhere to this policy. If a student’s attire is found to be in violation of the dress code, a parent/legal guardian will be notified, and the student will be required to  change in order to continue in virtual learning sessions.
