  • Reminder on Student Dress Code: Please remind students about proper dress now that short dresses, tank tops and shorts are the preferred daily attire. K-4 staff, you can remind them about those examples which apply~ highlighted portion really needs to be stressed.
  Clothes are not to be provocative, bear profanity, advertise tobacco, drugs or alcohol, display skulls or other death symbols, or cause disruption to the educational process. Clothing which exposes underwear or large portions of the body (including holes and tears in jeans) is offensive to some people and is, therefore, not allowed at TCU. Shorts and skirts should be of a length at the fingertip or beyond, when the student is standing with arms at their sides. Sleeveless tops must have straps, and undergarments must not be showing (including bra straps. Torn jeans and/or shirts are not appropriate attire. Students coming to school inappropriately dressed will be asked to call parents for a change of clothing. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
