• Dress and Appearance

    Dress and Appearance
    The Berkshire staff and PTA request all students and parents support the following dress and appearance standards: 
    ● Undergarments and midriff (front and back) must be covered at all times and pants must be worn at the waist. 
    ● Shorts/skirts must be as long as the students’ fingertips when their arms are fully extended down. 
    ● The following tops are not allowed: strapless, backless, halter, low-cut, or tube tops. 
    ● Straps on sleeveless shirts must be at least 2 inches wide. 
    ● No imprinting (related to violence, sex, illegal drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, culturally insensitive/inappropriate 
    language or otherwise distracting from the educational environment) is allowed on clothing. 
    ● Headwear (hats, scarves, bandannas, etc.) is allowed, but hoods may not be worn at any time in the building. 
    ● Shoes must be worn in halls and classrooms (no slippers). 
    ● Open toe shoes are not permitted in Engineering Technology, SFL, basketball courts or Art classrooms. 
    ● Coats, jackets, and book bags are to be kept in lockers. 

    Berkshire periodically has special dress-up days when certain clothing items are permitted in classes. These events 
    will be announced to students and parents in advance. A “good rule of thumb” for parents: If there is any doubt 
    about something your child wants to wear to school, deny permission for your child to wear it.
