Just about every school has a dress code of some kind. Some schools have uniforms and are very strict about them. Some schools have uniforms, but there is room for some creative expression as long as you follow the rules. Some schools don’t allow tank tops or shorts. Some schools don’t allow hats.

    My school doesn’t have many rules. The only rules are at least two fingered tank tops, no hats, and finger tip length shorts. Not that bad!

    I have uniforms. What I really like is that they let the girls wear crazy tights. Like stripes,polka dots and flowers crazy tights. So I show my personality in school projects and in my tights.:)

    my school doesn’t let anybody wear shorts or skirts above the tips of your fingers if you put them down, spaghetti straps, open-toed shoes, and crop tops. the bad thing is that almost every teacher breaks the dress code, but when we break it we get sent home. ):

    In my school you cant wear really short shorts(has to be, when you put your hands down, past your fingertips) and spaghetti strapped tanktops.

    At my school, shorts must come to ur fingertips and tank tops must be at least 3 fingers. This makes it hard 4 people with long arms (like me) 2 find appropriate shorts, then u c people with shorts half ur length because their arms r super short and it’s annoying. We also have the rule about no mid-drifts or bra straps showing and no explicit messages. But the popular kids get away with breaking dress code, but if anybody else breaks it, they get told to go change. In grade 5 I switched schools and got told off for wearing a too-short skirt when I didn’t know about the rule. The same skirt was fine at my old school because they weren’t strict about dress code. The funny thing is that both schools had the same approved dress code, one school was just more strict about it. I think that if the district school board has a board-wide dress code than all the schools should show the same strictness towards it. Then it would make transitioning between schools easier. You wouldn’t have to worry about ur shorts being too short at a new school when they were fine at your old school.

    I don’t have dress code. But, we’re not allowed to wear spaghetti straps and we use the bend over rule for shorts

    My school has a uniform :( . We have to wear dresses and polos under it. Our shoes are pretty ugly they are bucks…. I feel like i need more freedom of expression at my school though. The only way i can express myself at school is by the color shoestrings i have and i can chose from three colors of spandex to wear under my dress. It sorta stinks….

    my school doesn’t allow tank tops with really thin straps or short shorts it also doesn’t allow things that show your belly
    I just make sure I only buy the trendy things that follow my dress code it is easy to do

    My school dress code is pretty relaxed -no tank tops, short shorts, hats, or sunglasses- so we can pretty much wear what we want.

    We have no uniforms at our school.We have a liberal dress code. We cant wear hoods or hats or t-shirts that advertise alcohol or tobacco.
    I love to wear stylish clothes. I’m really glad we don’t have to wear uniforms.

    i have a dress code where you wear uniforms but you get used to them. You can where a hat outside but not inside a classroom. Dress code is very easy to get used to.
