CITRUS COUNTY CHRISTIAN HOMESCHOOL GROUP DRESS CODE GUIDELINES

The below dress code is our guide for appropriate dress when attending any group function.  If you are somewhere "with the homeschool group", then it does apply.  We all have different personal standards for our dress, so for the group we have tried to follow the norm for other Christian schools' standards.  Out of respect for all members of the group, please keep these standards in mind when you or your children attend a group event or function.  This code applies to All Children, Students and Adults. 

If apparel does not meet dress code standards, you will be asked discreetly to make an adjustment or leave to change and return.  At co-ops, you will also be given a dress code checklist with the area of concern noted, and asked to adjust or change.

 
Ladies/Girls Everyday:

Shirts -

  • Long-sleeved, short-sleeved and sleeveless tops are allowed; no tank tops or camis worn as shirts.
  • The front of your shirt may not be less than 2.5” (about 4 finger width) below your collarbone. No cleavage may show.  Top of shirts cannot be lower than armpit level in back.
  • No halter tops.  Shoulders should remained covered from neck to sleeve seam at top of shoulder (or where a normal sleeve would be attached for sleeveless tops).
  • Shirts should be long enough, that when your arms are raised above your head, your stomach and back remain covered. (esp. during sports, cartwheels, etc.)
  • No clothing or skin with offensive language, sayings, or pictures.  Tattoos that do not meet this must stay covered.

Shorts/Pants/Skirts -

  • Shorts and "skorts" should be as long as your fingertips when held at your side extended down towards the ground. Skirts should be no shorter than 1 hand-width above the knee. 
  • Shorts, skorts and skirts need to be able to stay down to required length.  Being able to pull shorts/skirts down to dress-code length is not the same as being in dress code.
  • Any low-rise pants/shorts should completely cover your underwear.  Again, no bellies or backs should show at any time (even during sports).      
  • Spandex shorts or pants, or leggings, need to be covered with a mid-thigh-length shirt front and back.  Shorts should always show beneath longer shirts to avoid the appearance of "no bottoms on".

Swimming - Modest one piece swimsuit (or cover your two piece with a long dark shirt/rash guard), AND shorts/board shorts (not spandex-style boy short swimsuit bottoms) over either.  At events where some are swimming and some are not, please be courteous and change back into normal apparel when re-joining the non-swimming activities.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ladies/Girls Variation for Designated Formal Events ONLY:

Formal - Shirts -

  • Dresses can have straps but they need to be at least 1 ½” thick and fully able to cover bra straps.  No halter tops.  Straps need to go over shoulder.
  • The front of your shirt may not be less than 2.5” (about 4 finger width) below your collarbone. No cleavage may show.  Tops of dresses/shirts cannot be lower than armpit level in back.
  • Shirts should be long enough, that when your arms are raised above your head, your stomach and back remain covered. (esp. during sports, cartwheels, etc.)

Formal - Shorts/Pants/Skirts -  Same as Everyday wear

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GUYS - Everyday AND Formal -

Shirts -

  • A shirt must be worn at all times.  Long-sleeved, short-sleeved and sleeveless tops are allowed.  No tank tops, or shirts split down the sides or with long armholes.
  • The front of your shirt may not be less than 2.5” (about 4 finger width) below your collarbone.  Top of shirts cannot be lower than armpit level in back.
  • Shoulders should remained covered from neck to sleeve seam at top of shoulder (or where a normal sleeve would be attached for sleeveless tops). 
  • Shirts should be long enough, that when your arms are raised above your head, your stomach and back remain covered. (esp. during sports, etc.)
  • No clothing or skin with offensive language, sayings, or pictures.  Tattoos that do not meet this must stay covered.

Pants/Shorts -

  • Shorts should be as long as your fingertips when held at your side extended down towards the ground.  They should not ride or pull up all day, but need to be able to stay long enough to be in dress code.  Being able to pull shorts down to dress-code length is not the same as being in dress code.
  • Any low-rise pants/shorts should completely cover your underwear or boxers.  Again, no bellies or backs should show at any time.  
  • Spandex shorts or pants, or leggings, need to be covered with a mid-thigh-length shirt front and back.  Shorts should always show beneath longer shirts to avoid the appearance of "no bottoms on".

Swimming - Swim trunks/shorts (no boxers showing, no "speedos" or spandex shorts) and a shirt/rash guard for swimming.  At events where some are swimming and some are not, please be courteous and change back into normal dress code apparel when re-joining the non-swimming activities.
