Student's personal dress and grooming are determined by the student and parent provided that the student's dress and grooming shall not:

  1. Lead school officials reasonably to believe that such dress or grooming will disrupt, interfere with, disturb, or detract from school activities.
  2. Create a health or other hazard to the student's safety or to the safety of others.

The principal, in connection with the sponsor, coach, or other person in charge of an extracurricular activity, may regulate the dress and grooming of students who participate in the activity if the principal reasonably believes that the student's dress or grooming:

  1. Creates a hazard to the student's safety or to the safety of others.
  2. Will prevent, interfere with, or adversely affect the purpose, direction, or effort required for the activity to achieve its goals.

If the student's dress or grooming is objectionable under these provisions, the principal shall request the student to make appropriate corrections. If the student refuses, the principal shall notify the parent and request that person to make the necessary correction. If the student continues to refuse, the principal shall take appropriate corrective action. Students may be suspended, if circumstances so warrant, and students who violate provisions of the dress code relating to extracurricular activities may be removed or excluded from the extracurricular activity for such period as the principal may determine. All students shall be accorded due process safeguards before any corrective action may be taken.
