Dress Code

 

As an 1882 Campus, CAST Med High School will follow the Dress Code established in 2018, when the school was established and not the Dress Code of the Comprehensive Schools 6th-12th at SAISD. CAST Med High School has established a dress and grooming code for the following reasons:

  • To create an atmosphere conducive to  learning and to minimize disruptions due to personal appearance, conduct, grooming and hygiene, and attire.
  • To foster an attitude of respect for authority, and to prepare students to enter the workplace, which often has rules regarding dress, conduct and appearance.
  • To ensure that the conduct and grooming of students who represent the District  create a favorable impression for the District and community.

 

Students must dress and groom in a manner appropriate for a public school education environment because we believe that in doing so, students are prepared for success.  A student may be asked to return home to change clothes or the student's parents may be contacted  to bring a change of clothing.

 

Principle 1: Certain body parts must be covered for all students at all times.  Clothes must be worn in a way such that the chest and abdomen, genitals, and buttocks are fully covered with opaque fabric.  All items listed in the "must wear" and "may wear" categories below must meet this principle.

Principle 2: Students MUST Wear: A shirt, with a fabric that touches the waistband in the front and back and on the sides under the arms.  Jeans are not allowed.  "Jean Days" are announced to students when they will occur and when they are, torn jeans of any kind, are prohibited.  Khaki or any other pant is allowed.  Students may wear shorts but shorts must be long enough to touch the bottom of the fingertips when the arm is extended straight down.  Because shorts are permitted year round, parents should allow students to wear them when the weather is appropriate and warm.  If it is cold, students should wear warm clothing. Miniskirts or skirts that are too short are not allowed.  Skirts, dresses, and shorts follow the same required length rule listed above.  All students must wear shoes.

Principle 3: Students MAY wear, as long as they do not violate Principle 1 or 2 above:

  • Athletic attire
  • College Shirts
  • School Shirts
  • Favorite Sports Team Attire

 

 

Principle 4: Students CANNOT wear:

  • Images or language depicting drugs or alcohol (or any illegal item or activity) or any other substance prohibited under FNCF (LEGAL)
  • Hate Speech
  • Profanity
  • Pornography
  • Images or language that creates a hostile or intimidating environment based on any protected class or consistently marginalized groups
  • Violent language or images
  • Sunglasses inside school unless prescribed by a doctor
  • Visible piercings (spacers included) of the nose, eyebrows, lips, tongue, cheeks, or navel
  • Any clothing that reveals visible undergarments (waistbands and straps included)
  • Swimsuits 
  • Pajamas (unless it is Pajama Day)
  • House slippers, flipflops, or "slides"
  • Accessors that could be considered dangerous or could be used as a weapon
  • Any item that obscures the face or ears (except as a religious observance)
  • Any hair colored in a way that is not natural in appearance or unconventional

 

Principle 5:  CAST Med High School asks students to participate each Monday of the entire school year in "Dress for Success".  Students should dress in attire as if they were to attend an interview.  Students may wear the same attire each Monday.  If Monday is a school holiday, then "Dress for Success" will take place on the following Monday when school is in session.  Students are allowed to "Dress for Success" all week, if they desire.
