Northwest Middle School

Dress Code

There will not be an official uniform requirement. Students can wear their own clothes. Students can also wear the traditional uniform if they choose.

Students will be expected to dress appropriate for school each day. The expectations are listed below:

Footwear Expectations

As a safety precaution students will not be permitted to wear flip flops, open toe sandals, house shoes/slippers, heelys or swim shoes. Students are also not allowed to wear high heels that exceed 1 inch.

Attire Expectations

Northwest Middle School students are expected to present modesty in their attire. Pants, jeans, and skirts should fit and NOT sag. Skirts and shorts should be no shorter than the arm length ending at their finger tip (mid thigh or right above knee.) Clothing accessories should not present a dis- traction in length, appearance and noise level. Leggings must be in addition to correctly measured bottoms. They cannot be worn alone as a bot- tom. Bottoms and tops with holes, cuts and openings will not be permitted. Halter tops, tube tops, or sleeveless/cutoff shirts that may expose the up- per body will not be permitted.


Caps, hats, headbands, scarves, bandannas, hair rollers, combs, and doo rags should not be worn. We will have special hat and spirit days that be announced. Logos, images or graphics that represent or present crime, drugs, alcohol, or sexual exploitation, and gang affiliations are not permitted

These expectations represent a change from our traditional uniform policy. With new freedom comes new responsibility. It is our desire to uphold the high expectations that you already have for your stu- dent so that all students at Northwest look like young men and women of excellence each day!
