Vista del Lago Dress Code Policy

    For the 2023-24 school year Vista del Lago is piloting a less restrictive dress code. The purpose of this pilot is to gather data and feedback from all stakeholders before making a decision regarding the dress code policies in our district. Below is an overview of the pilot dress code and expectations.

    The Folsom Cordova Unified School District has adopted Board policies 5132 which include the following: “The Governing Board believes that appropriate dress and grooming contribute to a productive learning environment. The Board expects students to give proper attention to personal cleanliness and to wear clothes that are suitable for the school activities in which they participate. Students’ clothing must not present a  health or safety hazard or a distraction, which would interfere with the education  process.”

    Students Must Wear: 

    • Clothing that protects and covers private body parts.

    • Top (shirt, blouse, sweater, sweatshirt, tank, etc.)

    • Bottom (pants, shorts, skirt, dress, etc.) that completely covers the buttocks

    • Footwear must be worn

    This policy permits additional student attire requirements when necessary to ensure safety in certain academic settings (e.g. physical activity, science or CTE courses). Additionally, this policy allows for reasonable variation in required student attire for participation in activities such as swimming or gymnastics. 

    Students MAY NOT Wear:

    • Clothing that is pornographic, contains threats, or promotes illegal or violent conduct such as the unlawful use of weapons, drugs, alcohol, tobacco, or drug paraphernalia.

    • Visible underwear or bathing suits of similar design. Visible waistbands or straps on undergarments worn underneath other clothing are not a violation. 

    • Clothing that demonstrates hate group association/affiliation and/or uses hate speech targeting groups based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious affiliation, or other protected groups.

    • Sheer or see-through clothing that reveals private parts. 

    • Hats or headgear that cover the student’s face or intentionally mask student's identity, with the exception of clothing with a medical or religious purpose. Teachers may direct students to adjust headwear during exams or to address headphone/earbud issues.
