Student Dress Code


John Sedgwick Middle School does not have a strict code of dress. However, students are asked to wear clothes that are neat, clean, and suitable for school. Clothing which interferes with or distracts from the educational process or depicts something illegal is not acceptable. This includes the following:

  1. Extremely tight or excessively offensive form-fitted clothing.
  2. Excessively short or revealing clothing to include bare midriffs or low-cut tops, spaghetti straps, or strapless tops.
  3. Pajama bottoms
  4. Sagging or extremely baggy clothing which may allow the underwear to be exposed.
  5. Clothing, backpacks, jewelry, or insignia with drug/alcohol/sexual/vulgar/weapons pictures or messages.
  6. Any garment/footwear (including slippers and rubber flip-flops) which could be considered unsafe.
  7. Students may not wear hats, hoods, or scarves in the building.
  8. Chains (wallet type) of any kind or size.
  9.  Spike dog collar type neck wear and bracelets.
If a student is dressed inappropriately by these standards, they may be offered a change of clothes by our Counseling Office or asked to call home for a change of clothes.
