CITRUS COUNTY CHRISTIAN HOMESCHOOL GROUP DRESS CODE GUIDELINES

 
The below dress code is our standard for appropriate dress when attending any group function. If you are somewhere "with the homeschool group", then it does apply. 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, Adults, Faculty, Staff, Volunteers, Guests, etc..  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.
Note: 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. In our last member poll, almost all members voted to either more fully enforce the dress code, or to make it stricter.  The CCCHG Board does not arbitrarily make up dress code policies.  The dress code reflects the feedback of your fellow members.  (back to top)
 
• No clothing or skin with offensive language, sayings, or pictures. Tattoos that do not meet this must stay covered.
• Shirts
• Long-sleeved, short-sleeved tops are allowed;  No sleeveless shirts, tank tops, open shoulder tops, or halter tops. Shoulders should remain covered from neck to sleeve seam at top of shoulder, and there must be a sleeve attached.
• 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.
• 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.)
• 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.
•  Nursing Moms
We love our moms and babies!  Please be mindful of other adults AND children when you are feeding your baby.  Please keep your front, back, belly and waist covered with a jacket, baby blanket, etc when nursing.
