The clothes we wear frequently reflect our individual personalities
and tastes. Young people attending middle school are very concerned about
such matters and in reality are probably overly concerned about the way they
look at any given moment. The Paul Revere guidelines and rules below are designed
to create a reasonable atmosphere for students to learn and play.
Students' school attire should be casual and comfortable for the purposes of health, warmth and convenience. Clothing should not be disruptive to the educational process nor the instructional program.
Hats and caps may not be worn except on days when it is actually raining. On rainy days hats, caps and hoods on sweat shirts may not be worn in the classroom.
Jackets should be inexpensive, warm and simple/plain in design. Expensive leather jackets or professional sport team warm-up coats and college/professional satin team jackets are not recommended. They are too expensive and can be easily soiled, damaged or even lost or stolen.
Students may not wear clothing with lettering or pictures signifying private, off-campus clubs, organizations or gangs or that convey off-color, lewd or profane comments. Clothing with comments advocating the use of tobacco, drugs or alcohol are included in this category.
Students must wear shoes at all times for reasons of health and safety. Shoes should preferably be held on by laces, straps or snug fit and should not be backless. Thongs and slippers are not appropriate for reasons of health and safety.
Some reasonable form of shirt or blouse must be worn at all times. Short-cropped, bare-midriff and see-through tops may not be worn. Hopefully all of our students' shirts and tops will be held up or on by reasonable shoulder straps designed for the business of working and playing at school.
Students will be counseled and parents advised when students repeatedly wear clothing that is too short, too tight, too baggy and too low. Pants or denims may not be worn with the suspenders hanging down. Students wearing articles of clothing deemed to be unreasonable or in violation of the Paul Revere guidelines will be directed to change them when possible or check them in at the office until the close of school or until parents can be contacted. The parents of students who have repeated dress code problems will be brought into the counseling process. The vast majority of the Paul Revere students come dressed very nicely and appropriately for the business of going to school to learn and play. This is, of course, a tribute to our parents and young people. If you need further information, please contact us at (310) 917-4800.
