Dress Code

North Arvada Middle School Dress Code 

A safe and disciplined learning environment is essential to a quality educational program. District-wide standards on student attire are intended to help students concentrate on schoolwork, reduce discipline problems, and improve school order and safety. The North Arvada Middle School dress code is developed within district guidelines to support a safe, disruption-free, appropriate learning

environment for all. If clothing or accessories are disruptive to learning, then students will be sent to the main office for a change of clothes, the parent/guardian will be contacted and/or other disciplinary consequences may take place.

The following dress is not allowed at North Arvada Middle School:

  • Caps with a bill and hoodies on the head;

  • Chains – including part of clothing and chain wallets;

  • Gang related clothing - including bandanas; and

  • Clothes displaying the following: inappropriate or suggestive messages, illegal or restricted substances including alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and violent themes or weapons with the exception of school mascots.

Here are some, not all, additional guidelines of dress that may disrupt the learning environment:
