    Unlike CMSD’s prior dress code which specifically dictated what students were required to wear, CMSD’s new dress expectations provides students and parents the choice of clothing with the following exceptions.

    Students may not wear:

    • clothing that is see-through
    • clothing where the buttocks or torso is exposed
    • clothing or accessories which show profanity, obscene words or pictures, sexually suggestive statements, violence or incitement to violence
    • clothing representing gang-related activities
    • clothing where the entire thigh is exposed, such as micro minis or short shorts.
    • bathing suits or cut-offs
    • the wearing and carrying of tobacco promotional items, or items promoting controlled substances (drugs) and/or alcohol
    • clothing where undergarments are exposed
    • clothing that has text or visual images that is libelous, bullying, constitutes harassment or discrimination

    In addition, students may not wear backless or open toe footwear to school or at school functions.

    Students and families who wish to continue wearing a more traditional school uniform may still do so; however, these uniforms are no longer required.  In addition, CMSD families needing clothing assistance will still have access to support through our community partners.






    Students K-12 are expected to adhere to the uniform dress code. 
    Pre-K students are not held to the uniform dress code, but are encouraged to comply. To learn more about the uniform policy, and limited uniform assistance call 216.838.FACE (3223).
