Dress Code Policy

Augustus Hawkins High School

“Home of the Hawks”




As part of the school orientation process, we would like to provide you with information about our Student Dress Code. All students are expected to dress appropriately for the educational environment. We believe that appropriate student dress contributes to a healthy, productive, and safe learning environment for all students and staff.  Staff, parents, local law enforcement, and community members have chosen to adopt these School Dress Code Guidelines to establish a friendly and professional atmosphere that promotes pride, respect, and safety for all students and staff. For this reason, students at our school are expected to follow our School Dress code. 


As noted by Board policy, all students shall be required to show proper attention to personal cleanliness, health, neatness, safety, and suitability of clothing and appearance for school activities.


In every case the dress and grooming of the student shall not:
