BUSCH MIDDLE SCHOOL DRESS CODE
Students are to wear bottoms are khaki or navy blue in color. Shorts, skirts, and jumper lengths must be to the students’ fingertips when standing straight and arms are fully extended at sides.
Students are to wear shirts that have collars. This can include polo-style shirts or dress shirts. Shirts may be of any color, including solids, stripes or plaids. Busch Middle School t-shirts are also approved and can be purchased for around $10 from the front office.
- Students may wear non-hooded sweaters or jackets in the classroom during cold weather.
- Students may wear closed shoes such as tennis shoes, boots or dress shoes. Students may not wear slides, flip flops or house shoes at any times for safety reasons.
-Jeans are allowed only on dress-down days. Leggings are allowed to be worn under skirts or dresses. Any distracting items or accessories are not permitted.
Anything that promotes the school is allowed to be worn. This does not include student-generated Busch shirts. Official school T-shirts are usually sold in the fall.
The principal will occasionally allow students to dress down for a $1 donation to a charity or field trip fund. Students are asked to remember that they are dressing for a work place when dressing for dress-down days. Students may not wear ill-fitting clothing (too tight, short, or low cut). Students may wear dresses, skirts, shorts, pants or jeans of choice. T-shirts are acceptable on dress down days. Girls may not wear leggings as pants. The shoe code remains the same on dress-down days. Dressing down is NEVER required, and many students choose to wear a school uniform even on dress-down days.
Physical Education Class
Students are to wear athletic shorts or pants (elastic waist). Stripes down the sides of the shorts are acceptable. Students are to wear a plain t-shirt. In addition, students are to wear tennis shoes and socks for PE class. Classes sometimes go outside where it is muddy, so please be prepared.
Infractions of the dress code will be addressed by the school. Busch will issue alternative clothing for the students to wear on the day the infraction occurs. Issued clothing will be returned at the end of the school day. Repeated offenses will result in further consequences.
