Dress Code

View the Student & Family Handbook

While students have the right to appropriate expression, they also have the right to an education. Dress is a matter of self-expression and is influenced by weather and fashion trends, but certain items and styles are not acceptable for fostering a positive learning environment.

The following items are inappropriate and are not to be brought or worn to school or to school-sponsored events:

  • Clothing that is overly revealing or sexually suggestive. No halters, tubes or single shoulder strap shirts are allowed. The midriff, back, chest or buttocks should not be exposed. Shirts and tops must have a strap over each shoulder and the bottom of shirts and tops must meet or be longer than the top of the pants so that the midriff is not exposed. 
  • No undergarments may be visible when in normal posture (sitting or standing)
  • Clothing that has a derogatory message
  • Clothing that promotes, suggests or depicts violence
  • Trench coats and dusters
  • Clothing that displays or suggests drugs, alcohol or illegal activity
  • Any item that could be dangerous or used as a weapon (such as spikes and chains)
  • Sunglasses may not be worn in the building
  • Hats are to be removed at any staff member’s request
  • Shoes must be worn at all times

To maintain academic focus and promote safety, Chatfield High requests that students comply with the above dress code as well as any regulations from Jeffco Public Schools and the state.

Students in violation of these rules will be asked to abide by any decision made by staff or the administration about questionable items. The school appreciates student cooperation in this matter.

Dress Code Guidance in Jeffco

Responsibility for student dress and appearance generally rests with individual students and their families. Students may wish to express themselves by the manner of their dress and appearance; however, students shall not wear clothing or affect an appearance at school or school-sanctioned activities or events that is disruptive to the educational environment. Jeffco Public Schools standards on student attire are intended to help students focus on schoolwork, reduce discipline problems, and improve school order and safety.

Disciplinary action for violating the student dress code shall include notifying the student of the violation and requiring that the dress or appearance be corrected before the student reenters the classroom, school environment, or school-sanctioned activity or event. At the discretion of the building-level administrator, a family conference may be held. More serious consequences may result from repeated or serious violations.
