Here is Bodine’s Uniform Policy:

Dress Code Guidelines:

Note: All Students are expected to wear clothing that is appropriate in most professional settings. To ensure effective and equitable enforcement of this dress code, school staff shall enforce the dress code consistently and in a manner, that does not reinforce or increase marginalization or oppression of any group based on race, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, cultural observance, household income or body type/size. Students aren’t allowed to wear anything that depicts drugs, violence, pornography, illegal activities, or hate speech on clothing.

Tops & Bottoms:

Students are required to wear a solid top and solid pants/bottoms (no rips or holes). Jeans should not be worn below the waist. Sleeveless t-shirts are not to be worn as a primary shirt. Students must wear apparel that covers the midriff and back. Tube tops, open back/side tops, crop tops, and plunging necklines (front and back) are prohibited. Straps on tops must be at least 1 inch wide and bra straps should not be visible. Shorts, skirts, and dresses must be mid-thigh length, at least to the fingertips. Bedtime attire and accessories, such as but not limited to do-rags, head scarfs and bonnets are not to be worn in school.

Footwear:
Students are required to wear shoes or sneakers without spiked heels. No slides, flip flops or bedroom shoes.

Gym-wear:
Gym uniforms may be purchased at the school when assigned to Physical Education.

Note: No Uniform Shirts will be sold this year but any students who already have shirts may wear them if they choose. We encourage students to participate in free monthly Bodine Spirit Days.
