MSEC Student Dress Code

Student Dress Code

 We believe that a uniform dress code is an important part of a safe, orderly school environment. Our dress code guidelines indicate appropriate school dress for normal school days. Students must be in dress code from the moment they arrive on campus each morning until they leave each afternoon.


Students are expected to follow these guidelines. Every student in attendance will wear a school uniform. Uniform shirts are available only through the school’s vendor; uniform bottoms may be purchased at local stores that carry uniform style clothing. Any student out of the dress code will be sent home immediately. That student will have an unexcused absence for that day. No excuses are accepted for being out of the dress code!


The Administrative Team at our school reserves the right to interpret appropriate school attire.



The student's hairstyle/color and makeup must not distract from or interfere with the learning and school environment. Hair must be kept well-groomed, neat, and clean at all times.



Shoes shall be worn and be securely fastened to the feet and have a low heel height. Footwear must be suitable for outdoor physical education classes and unsafe shoes are not allowed. Students must wear closed shoes at all times, no “mules”, slippers or “slides”. No heavy military type boots, shoes with metal tips, or steel toes may be worn. Tennis shoes are preferred. Heelys are strictly prohibited.



Socks should be worn to avoid blistering of the heels and feet. Fishnet stockings, gang-related colors, or other inappropriate legwear are not acceptable.



Students may only wear school purchased shirts. (There is an exception only for this year) Uniform shirts must be of the type and color designated by the school. Clothing exposing the torso or the midriff, either front, back, or sides, shall not be worn. During cooler weather, a plain long sleeve t-shirt in white/black or school colors may be worn underneath the uniform shirts.



Solid color jackets are permitted with minimal logos, zipper, or button front, jackets may be worn in cool weather. Students are not permitted to wear a jacket with a hood, even if it was previously purchased through a school-sponsored club or sport. (Students are not allowed to tuck their hoods in the inside of their jacket) Hoodies (sweatshirt-style pullovers with a hood) are not permitted, even those with the school logo or given for club/athletic participation.


Uniform Bottoms 

All uniform attire requiring a belt must be worn with a belt (no designs or studs) through the belt loops (if applicable), worn at the natural waist, be in good repair, and be of appropriate size. All pants and shorts shall be secured at the waist. Underwear shall not be visible. Overly large, overly long, or tight-fitting attire is not acceptable. Shorts and other knee baring attire must be no more than three inches above the knee. Leggings are not permissible. The colors are black, navy, and Khaki



Jewelry is limited to one (1) watch, one (1) ring, and one (1) small chain. Chains must be worn inside of shirts and are not visible except at the front of the neck. Students may wear two pairs of stud-type approximately ¼ inch diameter earrings. Earlobe plugs are not permitted.


At no time are students permitted to wear anything offensive, immodest, or deemed inappropriate by the administration. No gang attire, “Gothic” look attire, dog collars, spiked jewelry, etc. or any other accessories deemed inappropriate by the administration are permitted. Only a watch, one bracelet, and a thin necklace may be worn if tucked inside the collar.
