Safety is the first and foremost consideration for any school. Schools in Conejo Valley Unified School District have established consistent dress codes for students. SCS has a high standard of dress. Students should dress in a manner that demonstrates pride in oneself, respect for others and oneself, and that is not distracting to the educational process.
Suggestive, or gang related clothing, is banned from the campus. Baggy, oversized, and / or too tight/provocative clothing is not appropriate for school. Any clothing that is deemed unsafe to wear and interferes with the instructional program cannot be worn. Pants that slide down below the waistline and expose the undergarments or hang below the shoes are considered too baggy. Shirts that expose the midriff (navel showing) are considered too provocative. Tank tops with minimum 1-inch straps ONLY are allowed for both boys and girls. Any straps measuring less than one inch ARE NOT allowed. Undergarments must not been visible. SKIRTS AND SHORTS MUST BE a certain length i.e. put your arm down at your side, look at where your fingers lie against your leg, this length is ALLOWED at school. Clothing that advertises alcoholic beverages, contains bad language, or other inappropriate slogans/pictures are also not allowed.
Hats can be worn to school (outside only) and in the correct / original position. We reserve the right to take a cap/hat away from any student if it disrupts the educational process. In addition, black L.A. Raiders’ jackets and shirts are not allowed. Make-up, tattoos, dangerous jewelry, wallet chains, spikes, studs, safety pins, clothespins, and dyed hair are not permitted. Elementary students must wear closed toed shoes with a back strap that are appropriate for students to participate in normal P.E. activities and recess. Heelys are not permitted on the Sycamore Canyon School campus. Middle School students may wear open toed shoes with back straps (ALL shoes must have back straps). High heels ARE NOT allowed.
In the child’s K-8 years, we need to take an active role assisting our children in making smart choices. These standards were set up to ensure safety, a positive self-image, and a quality education. Thank you for your support.
