Dress Code Policy

At Malibu High School, our dress code policy is expected to be followed by all students. Our dress code is committed to providing a safe and orderly learning environment.

Clothing may not disrupt the learning environment. A student's dress and general appearance should not be so extreme that it draws attention to the student, nor should dress and appearance detract or interfere with the teaching and learning in the classroom.

No clothing will be allowed that defames, degrades or is offensive to a gender, race, color, religious creed, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, age, a physical or mental impairment or culture. Nor shall any clothing display any suggestive or objectionable material. Clothing must not advocate unhealthy behavior, dangerous practice, or create a safety problem (includes no graphics/text containing sexual connotations, controlled substances or violence). Appropriate, safe footwear must be worn at all times. Hats or head coverings may only be worn outside unless for religious beliefs. If wearing leggings, leotards or tights, fist length shorts, fingertip length shirts, skirts or dresses must be worn over them. Hem of shorts are at fist length when arms are resting at the sides and skirts and dresses must be fingertip length. Tank top straps must be at least 1" in width to cover all under garments.

Some examples of inappropriate attire are:
  • Exposed stomachs or backs, clothes that are revealing
  • Exposed undergarments such as bras, camisoles, slips and boxers, including see through garments
  • Spaghetti straps, low-cut tops, strapless clothing, pajamas
