CHAMPS Dress Code

CHAMPS Homeschool Co-Op Dress Code

In keeping with the educational purpose of our co-op, all members of CHAMPS are expected to dress and groom themselves appropriately. Everyone is expected to keep his or her person and clothing clean and neat.

Any dress or hairstyle that is considered to be contrary to good hygiene, distracting, or disruptive in appearance, or detrimental to the educational environment of the group will not be permitted. The CHAMPS Board has the right to determine if attire or appearance is inappropriate for school. All members of CHAMPS (and their guests) should follow these guidelines:

  1. Clothing, accessories, or any items that advertise substances which are illegal for children and teenagers (drugs, alcohol, tobacco products, etc.) or which are otherwise inappropriate (profanity, violence, etc.) are not to be worn or brought to CHAMPS.

  2. Footwear must be worn at all times.

  3. Sleep and lounge-wear are not appropriate. Exposed undergarments are not allowed.

  4. Bare midriffs, sheer or see-through clothing, off-the-shoulder tops, tank tops (narrower than 3 fingers wide), spaghetti straps, muscle shirts, and other revealing garments are not allowed.

  5. The length of shorts, skirts, and dresses must be equal to or longer than the fingertips of the individual while standing in a relaxed position. This includes open slits in skirts. Biking shorts, spandex, tights, jeggings, and leggings are not permitted unless worn under another layer.

  6. Pajamas and boxer shorts are not permitted.

  7. All pants, shorts, and skirts are to be worn properly at the waist.

Students who arrive dressed inappropriately will be given the option of going home to change clothes or to wear clothing provided by CHAMPS. All final decisions regarding the appropriateness of clothing will be made by the CHAMPS Board.
