COTTONWOOD CLASSICAL DAILY DRESS EXPECTATIONS:
Student dress should reflect the professionalism that comes with being the top charter school in New Mexico, and one of the top schools across the country. To that end, clothing must be neat, clean, appropriate, modest, and not distracting to the learning environment. The Cottonwood polo, and all other recognizable symbols of our school, serve as a reminder of our common identity, and these communicate our values to those outside of our school.
Student dress should reflect a seriousness of purpose. To that end, clothing
must be neat, clean, appropriate, modest, and not distracting to the learning environment. It is the school’s prerogative to determine what is objectionable.
Dress expectations will be identical for all students, and will be identically enforced.
SANCTIONED NON-UNIFORM EVENTS:
In the event of a sanctioned non-uniform event such as dress down days, spirit wear days, and/or school sanctioned-activities, students must adhere to the dress code guidelines outlined above.
PE DRESS EXPECTATIONS:
For PE classes, students are required to wear their PE shirt with sweatpants, athletic pants, or athletic shorts that are free of large logos, and/or lettering (no lettering or graphics are allowed on the rear end of a student’s shorts or sweatpants). Students need to wear proper, closed-toe athletic shoes. Clothes should be sized appropriately, i.e. not too baggy or excessively tight. P.E. shirts can only be worn during P.E. class.
