Dress Code


“Dress Sharp, Look Sharp, Act Sharp”


Research indicates that when we look good, we have positive attitudes about ourselves and our work. Paris Elementary has the following dress code:


  • Hats and clothing with rude or inappropriate language, symbols, or connotation are not allowed.
  • Slogans and logos that advertise or promote alcohol, tobacco, or other adult material are also not permitted at school.
  • We ask students and parents or other guests to the school to reserve hats for outdoor wear and to take them off while inside the building.
  • Clothing that presents a safety concern is not permitted. We consider oversized clothing, shoes with wheels built in and high heeled shoes as not safe attire for school.
  • Students will need to change their clothing if it is deemed inappropriate by administration.
  • We ask that you send your child to school with sneakers or other shoes that protect the toes.
  • Please do not send children to school with clothing that ‘talks’ or plays music!
  • To protect our gym floor, street shoes are not allowed during play or gym time. Students are encouraged to bring a spare pair of sneakers to be kept in their lockers. Our P.E. department has extra sneakers in various sizes that children may borrow for class.
  • In the winter, children should dress for the weather. Hats, mittens, boots, and snow pants help make outside play more fun.
  • Please put your child’s name inside clothing. We donate lots of ‘lost’ clothing and footwear to goodwill each year when it is not reunited with its owner.
