Hanes Magnet School will continue to have a Standard Mode of Dress for all students and staff. Students are expected to be in Standard Mode of Dress from the time they enter the building in the morning through the time they exit the building in the afternoon(students in PE should change back into SMOD before going home).
A dress code check will be performed daily after the morning announcements. Students who change out of dress code for class presentations will remain in their classroom or on their hallway. They should change back into SMOD following the presentation activity.
On game days, athletic team members will be allowed to wear their uniform/team top only. Coaches will provide team members with further details for each sport. Spirit days, on which students may wear spirit t-shirts, or non-SMOD days may be designated by the Principal.
The school's Standard Mode of Dress is as follows:
- Colors are khaki (tan/beige) or black in uniform or chino style. No leggings, soccer pants, yoga pants, athletic pants/shorts or jeggings.
- Garments should be worn above the hipbone (no saggingpants).
- Skirts, shorts or jumpers must be worn just above the knee or longer. Capri pants are also appropriate.
- Three types of collared shirts are allowed in long or short sleeves: Knit (Golf/Polo type) shirts, oxford shirts (must be buttoned),broad cloth shirts.
- Colors are white, black, khaki (tan/beige), purple and yellow/gold.
- Shirt tails longer than wrist length must be tucked in.
- Shirts must be plain.
- Small logos only are allowed on shirts. Large logos are not allowed.
- Any shade of purple and any shade of yellow are acceptable.
- Outer garments worn in the building during the school day (such as vests, sweaters, light jackets, or sweatshirts) must be a solid color of white, black, purple, yellow/gold, or khaki (tan/beige). This does not pertain to heavy coats worn to school during cold weather.
- Small logos are allowed, but large logos that extend across the garment are not allowed for outer garments. The only exception to this is Hanes hoodies. These may have larger Hanes logos as long as they are in the appropriate colors.
- Heavy coats of any color, weight or style may be worn to school, but they must be stored during the school day.
- Layered garments visible underneath shirts (such at t-shirts, turtlenecks, or camis) or shorts/skirts (tights or leggings) must be of a solid color of white, black, khaki (tan/beige), purple, or yellow/gold. Tights and leggings are not considered pants and must have a skirt or pants over them that meet dress code. These items may only be worn underneath a collared shirt or shorts/skirt.
- Oversized, undersized and skin tight garments are not allowed.
- Garments with excessive pockets are not allowed(safety issue). Pants should have no more that the two standard rear pockets and the two standard front pockets. Students may have small inset pockets on the leg. Patch pockets or cargo style pockets are not allowed on pant legs.
- Hats are not to be worn in the building. This includes students wearing hats on a belt loop. Hats should be taken off upon entering the building and stored in lockers. Hats that are worn will be confiscated, and parents will be required to pick them up.
