Liberty Middle School Dress Code

    Liberty Middle School, like all public schools, is a place with one primary goal:  providing the safest, most positive learning environment possible for all students.  Clothing and accessories that detract from that are not acceptable.  While we encourage self-expression for all, it must also come within reasonable limits, and always in the service of improving the learning atmosphere of our school.

    •      Representations of tobacco, drugs, or alcohol products, or symbols promoting the consumption of these items are NOT allowed.
    •     No offensive/vulgar language, symbols, or pictures on any clothing.
    •     No sagging. Specifically this means pants must fit, and be neither over-sized/baggy, or too tight and low riding.  Waistlines should rest no more than two inches below the navel.  There are no exceptions to this rule – even if other pants or shorts are worn underneath.
    •     No visible undergarments.  This includes but is not limited to bras and boxers.
    •     No unsafe jewelry or accessories.  This includes but is not limited to spikes, pins, chains, or other protruding jewelry.

    •   No pajamas.
    •    No gloves on in the building.
    •   Only solid soled shoes are allowed.
    •   No trench coats, or bulky coats in the building.  Coats of this description may be stored in lockers during the day, but never worn in the building.

      •   pants must meet the guidelines described above
