The Loomis Union School District School Board enforces a dress code for the eighth grade promotion ceremony and dance. You are asked to read the policy and discuss it with your child. Please note the sentence stating that students will be unable to participate in the ceremonies if they are inappropriately attired.
Girls: Should wear modest dresses, skirts or pants (no mini-skirts). All tops must have straps (no less than 1”) and be made of sufficient material and opacity to cover the torso. A cami/tank top must be worn under a sheer top to cover the entire torso and undergarments. All pants, skirts or dresses must be made of sufficient material and opacity and adequately cover the students

body while sitting or standing. Skirts and dresses must extend past the palm. Avoid tight material that inches upward with movement. Long dresses (below mid-calf) are inappropriate
for this type of ceremony for safety reasons. No strapless, spaghetti strap or backless (below shoulder blades) dresses may be worn unless worn with a sweater, shawl or cover-up. Girls are not to wear gloves or carry purses during the ceremony. For safety reasons, flats and low heels are recommended.
Boys: Should wear collared dress shirt, tie, solid color dress slacks (navy, khaki, gray or black), and closed toe shoes. Sport coats or sweaters are optional. Tuxedos, hats and denim pants are not to be worn. Please note that boys are expected to wear ties for the promotion ceremony. However, during the promotion dance, ties are optional. Students can send their ties home with a family member at the end of the ceremony or they can choose to keep them on for the promotion dance. While ties are allowed to be removed or loosened, if your child decides to keep his tie on, it must remain on his neck only. All other dress code requirements remain in effect for the promotion dance.
Students who are unclear should have their attire approved by their principal PRIOR to May 26, 2017.
Students who are inappropriately attired will be asked to make necessary adjustments or will be refused permission to participate in promotion ceremonies. If dress is altered during or after the ceremony to inappropriate attire, the student will be denied access to the dance. Students may change into comfortable shoes for the dance.
Limousines are not appropriate for promotion or the dance.
