Dress Code

The goal of the “PES” dress code is to ensure all students can learn safely and comfortably in an
environment free from distractions, while also representing a high degree of respect to each other
and the institution of learning.
For the 2022-23 school year we are offering two options for student dress code.
Option # 1: Parents can elect for their students to be dressed in the district wide Standard School
Attire.
Option # 2: Parents can elect for their children to wear a modification to the standard school
attire policy based on clearly communicated expectations to parents, students, faculty, and staff.
General Requirements:
1. Students will wear clothing of appropriate size. Approximate sizes are defined as no more than
one size smaller or one size larger than the student’s actual clothing size. Pants, shorts, capri
pants, skorts, or skirts must fit at the waist and must not sag.
