Salpointe Catholic High School maintains the right to establish a dress code for students. The student dress code is important to promote a conducive learning environment. Students are expected to dress appropriately while on campus and during all school-sponsored activities. The parameters for appropriate dress and grooming are set forth below. Parents/guardians are expected to offer the first and best counsel to their student in this matter. The Deans are the interpreters of proper attire.
All students are required to wear collared polo style short or long-sleeved shirts with a Salpointe logo. These shirts may be purchased through the Salpointe Spirit Store. Approved Salpointe team and club polo shirts are also acceptable. All shirts must be large enough in cut to cover from the neck to below the waistband whether the student is sitting, standing, or walking through the halls with a backpack. T-shirts or other types of shirts may not be worn over the dress code polo shirt.
All students are required to wear khaki or navy pleated or plain front Docker-type, solid color 100% cotton or cotton twill (98% cotton/2% spandex blend) or corduroy pants/Bermuda walking shorts (knee length) with a waistband that fits around the natural waist and has a set-in front zipper (no sagging, over-sized, too long, or baggy pants/shorts). Students may wear pants/shorts that have side pockets, they are referred to as a "90s style" straight leg pant. They may also wear pants that have a "jogger" elastic bottom (no baggy cargo styles, no athletic material). Old Navy "Pixie" pants (high waisted, ankle length) are allowed for girls. No denim material is allowed. Stretch clothing (such as athletic, yoga, leggings, and jogging pants) is not allowed. Skirts and skorts are not permitted. All pants/shorts must be neat, clean, in good repair (clothing may not be torn, frayed, or cut), and have a finished hem. Capri-style pants are acceptable as long as the fabric of these styles is the same as the pants and shorts outlined above.
All shoes must have closed toe and heel (maximum heel height is 1”). Any exceptions to this requires a doctor’s note. No Crocs, skate shoes, roller blades, roller skates, slippers, flip-flops, or sandals are allowed.
No hats, caps, stocking caps, headbands, or bandannas may be visible on campus between the first and the last bell of the day. Stocking caps may be worn only in the winter months outside the classroom.
All students are required to wear Salpointe approved outerwear bearing the Salpointe logo. This includes hoodies, sweatshirts and sweaters. A variety of outerwear can be purchased through the Salpointe Spirit Store.
Jewelry should be worn in moderation and in good taste. Large wallets, wallet chains or key chains that extend outside the pants or shirts are prohibited. Male students may not wear earrings/spacers. Male and female students may not wear any facial piercings. No sunglasses are to be worn on campus between the first bell and the last bell of the day.
Hair should be kept neat, clean, and remain in its natural color at all times. Bleaching, tinting, or dying is not permitted. Hair must be worn off the face at all times. The following hairstyles are also NOT ALLOWED; mohawks or rat tails.
Male students must be clean-shaven.
Hairstyles and/or ornamentation that are deemed by administration to be outlandish, inappropriate, or gang-related are prohibited. The administration reserves the right to modify dress code regulations in regards to hair as deemed necessary.
Body Art No visible tattoos, brands, piercings (other than ears for females) or other body art is allowed. Covering tattoos with tape or Band-Aids is not acceptable.
Occasionally, a dress-up/dress-down day will be allowed. Dress will be according to the themes dictated by the special days. All clothing shall be within the guidelines of decency and good taste as appropriate for school. No garment may be worn that is cut-off, ragged, or torn. Footwear regulations are always in effect for special dress days.
