Dress Code

DressCode

The Shore dress code is intended to set a standard of neat, casual, and appropriate dress for a school with a commitment to individuals presenting as their authentic selves.  The simplicity of this updated code offers families options within a reasonable budget.  Each day, students should honor the following criteria for dress:
  1. Clothing that is aligned with Shore’s Equity and Inclusion Commitment
  2. Clothing that is approved by the student’s caregiver(s)

List of 4 items.

  • Bottoms

    • Shorts or long pants that are not ripped or otherwise frayed
    • Skirts/skorts/dresses
    • Clothing that covers undergarments
  • Tops

    • Shirts, t-shirts (short or long sleeved) that are not ripped or otherwise frayed and are not sleeveless
    • Cardigan, turtleneck, and crew neck sweaters are permitted in addition to fleece and sweatshirts.  We love it when students wear Shore gear, but it is not required.
    • Tops with writing, logos, or messages that marginalize or threaten any identity or promote activities or products not appropriate for students are not permitted
    • Clothing that covers undergarments
  • Shoes

    • Sneakers, shoes, or boots that are in adequate repair and have closed toe and back.
    • Crocs, shoes with wheels, flip-flops, or sandals are not permitted

    In some circumstances, students will be asked to dress as an occasion requires.  Teaching students to code switch is a life skill that Shore promotes.
