What is the district dress policy?

Hyder School District has a dress code, and we expect students to follow it. Students should keep themselves well groomed and neatly dressed at all times. Please keep your clothes washed and clean. School uniforms consist of plain shirts with collars and sleeves and pants of a plain non-denim variety. Please tuck in shirts or have them fastened appropriately. Students must wear sweaters or jackets at the waist; we prohibit "sagging.” Students can wear shorts only if the length of the inseam is 3" or not more than 3" below the knee.

Please do not wear the following:

  • See-through clothes
  • Wallets with chains
  • Bare midriffs
  • Hanging belts
  • Fishnet fabrics
  • Low cut tops
  • Tight-fitting clothing
  • Hats, caps, or bandanas

We strictly enforce the dress code and will send home those who don’t comply.
