Dress Code

Parents’ good taste, weather, and PE program should govern the type of clothing worn to school by the students.  Tennis shoes are required for PE; soles CANNOT be black. 

Jackson Middle School (Oñate feeder school) has established the following guidelines to minimize educational disruptions and Oñate will adhere to these guidelines.  Students and their parents or guardians have the right to determine the dress and personal appearance of students, except where such dress or appearance presents a health or safety hazard or is in violation of municipal or state law, or presents a potential for disruption to the instructional program.


  • NO midriff shirts are allowed.  This means that no skin should be showing between the bottom of the shirt and the top of the pants/skirt at any time;
  • Sleeveless shirts must be at least two inches wide at their narrowest point on the shoulder (No “spaghetti” straps or halter tops);
  • Team jerseys (sleeveless with large arm holes) must have a sleeved shirt underneath them at all times (No tank tops or muscle shirts);
  • Coveralls must be worn with both the suspenders fastened and over the shoulders;
  • Excessively sagging pants or shorts are not allowed;
  • Excessively “baggy” clothing (including pants and/or shorts) are not allowed;  Baggy generally means that the pant legs are wider than twice the width of the leg;
  • Clothing that is excessively torn, tattered or long is not allowed;
  • Wallet to pocket chains are not acceptable (No chain, spiked or sharp accessories);
  • All belts should be worn appropriately with no excess belt hanging;

  • Skirts should be no shorter than the point where extended fingers end when the student is standing up straight;
  • Permanent/temporary hair coloring of any kind is not allowed ie., no red, green, blue, or jet black dyed hair).  Parents will be notified and students will be required to restore the natural hair color.  Parents will also be notified when haircuts (“Mohawks”,  spikes, hair covering the eyes, etc.) cause disruption to the educational process.


Students who come to school dressed inappropriately will be asked to change.  Parents will be asked to bring a change of clothing or clothes available at the site will be used.  Repeated violations will be dealt with parent notification and disciplinary consequence
