Clothing should maintain decency and not be overly revealing. Jeans, cargo pants, and shorts are allowed. Shorts should be fingertip length or longer, and dresses and skirts must be knee-length or longer. Shirts/T-shirts/blouses must not have any references to alcohol, drugs, crime, or any other impropriety. Students may NOT wear athletic shorts or leggings.
Note: A Homecoming bonfire is not possible this year due to the El Paso County burn ban.
