“The biggest change is shirts must have a collar or [students’] T-shirts have to have a direct relationship to Bradley Central,” BCHS Principal Todd Shoemaker said.
Also new this year, all shirts “must have a minimum 3-inch sleeve and a turtleneck, mock turtleneck or standard collar.”
Clothing with holes, cuts or frayed hems, yoga pants and “skinny Jeans” (defined by the school as those with a skin-tight fit) no longer meet dress code criteria.
According to Walker Valley High School Principal Danny Coggin, the high school does not have any dress code changes this year.
As in the past unnatural hair color and visible body piercings, except for ear piercings, are not acceptable at either county high school
Any gang-related or Gothic clothing is not acceptable at either school.
Hats, hoods and other head coverings can not be worn inside the school.
Each school’s complete dress code can be accessed on the school website.
Parents are encouraged to discuss any dress code questions with school administration.
