Dress Code

Dress Code

CCHS is committed to excellence in appearance and presentation. The purpose of CCHS’ dress code is to encourage an environment that is conducive to learning. CCHS believes the dress code will enhance learning by removing aspects of clothing individuality while addressing a community expectation. The dress code of CCHS is modest (proper fit), distinctive (modeling CCHS culture), and appropriate (neat, well-groomed) for the school day. Therefore, when clothing is deemed to be inappropriate for the learning environment (too tight), the student will be asked to change before gaining access to the classroom. The daily uniform is an institutional standard. Even though students are not required to wear uniforms to official school events, the student will be expected to follow the dress policy for attending CCHS sponsored activities (please see “Event Dress Code”).
