There is a specific dress code in every school, although some schools are more strict about it than others. Weld Central High School has a more relaxed dress code, but there are still some things that aren’t allowed. These include not wearing pajamas, saggy pants, spaghetti strapped or low cut tops, among others. This code allows us freedom to wear personal clothes, such as regular waistline denim and regular shirts, so long as they are school-appropriate.
The reason our school cares about the rules and applications for the dress code is to prevent student distraction by other’s apparel. Instead, they want students to focus on their classes and education. When asked about the dress code, Mrs. Tracie Sack stated “There are lots of them. You would have to check out the handbook because there are a page and a half of them.” She doesn’t think these ruled should be more strict, but they should definitely receive more attention.
So if you are ever in doubt, pick out clothes that are reasonable and appropriate. If you pick out something that is respectful, there’s nothing wrong with that. Remember to not have any violence, gang symbols, or anything that would cause a staff member to question your dress. If you remember that, then you will be safe and won’t have to worry about getting detention or any other repercussions. With an easy dress code such as ours, it’s easy to remember!
