Dress Code




Bullard High School has adopted the following Dress Code Policy; it will be strictly enforced at school and for all school-related activities, both on and off campus (reasonable dress regulations for special school activities can be made by the Principal). The basic standard is one that adheres to "good taste." Because reasonable people can disagree over what constitutes "good taste," the below listed clothing items and dress styles are prohibited:

Students can have only one earbud on during passing time and lunch, but must remove them before entering a classroom, locker room, library, cafeteria, or any other placed deemed necessary by school officials.  In case of an emergency, a student may use a cell phone with teacher or staff permission.

2.    No skateboards/skates/roller blades/scooters. Their use is prohibited on the school grounds.


Questions regarding the dress code due to medical or religious reasons should be directed to the vice principals.


Due to the frequency of changing styles in clothing, Bullard High School reserves the right to adjust the dress code as needed. The dress code will be reviewed periodically by staff, parents, students and the School Site Council. Exceptions to the above may be made by the Principal for special days or special events.
