BICYCLES Children who are in 7-12 grades may ride their bikes to school; however, they are prohibited from riding their bicycles on campus. They must observe the proper safety rules, wear a helmet, and park the bicycles in the designated area. ALL bicycles must be locked. The School does not accept responsibility for the theft or damage of students’ bicycles. The bicycle area is OFF LIMITS to all students during school hours. UNIFORM, DRESS AND APPEARANCE POLICY K-12 The Guidance Charter School Board on its May 1, 2013 meeting adopted a dress code uniform policy for all students. It is the purpose of this dress code to set the minimum standards of dress for students of The Guidance Charter School. It is important that students understand their responsibility to dress and conduct themselves in a manner that will be conducive to maintaining a safe, positive school environment and an orderly educational program. We require students to wear the uniform which consists of:  The Guidance Charter School white or green polo shirt (includes school logo).  Tan/Black pants, shorts or skirts, which meets the school dress code policy. We require parent/guardians’ cooperation and support in enforcing uniform policy. Pupils must be in uniform. Uniform shirts and pants must be neat and clean upon entering school. The Guidance Charter School Charter supports the California Education Code, Title 5, section 302, states, “A pupil who goes to school without proper attention having been given to personal cleanliness or neatness of dress may be sent home to be properly prepared for school or shall be required to prepare himself/herself for the school room before entering.” On non-uniform dress days (Fridays) the following will apply: Students may not dress in a fashion or manner that disrupts the educational process. All clothing should be in good condition. For example, no slits, no tears, and no frayed hems. Clothing should be neat and clean. No oversized pants or creased T-shirts. No bare midriff shirts, see-through or low-cut blouses, spaghetti straps (less than 1 inch), and halter-tops. No under garments may show; for example, bra strap. Clothes that do not cover all under garments are not allowed. No Slippers, flip-flops, backless sandals, opened toed shoes, steel-toed boots and/or any shoes that do not provide sanitary or safety protection. For safety purposes of all students, no shirts, jackets, hats, or clothing may be worn which represent athletic teams which have been determined by the L.A. Sheriff/Probation Departments to be representative of gang involvement. (For example: No Raiders, Kings, Georgetown Hoyas, OR clothing with Old English writing may not be worn at The Guidance Charter School.) All hats must be worn with the bill forward and only while outside. No clothing or hats promoting drugs, alcohol, tobacco or any controlled substance use, contains violent, suggestive, or obscene statements, expressions of racial, ethnic and/or religious prejudice, is vulgar or obscene, or has been determined to be representative of unacceptable groups or gangs will not be allowed. Specifically, no heavy metal shirts, flight jackets with combat boots, no cut off pants with knee-high socks. Initialed belt buckles, dangling belts, or chains are not allowed for school. For health and safety purposes, no dangling earring, gauges or large hoops will be permitted. In general, if the students “pinky finger” is able to fit through the earring, it is too large. No body piercing or personal graffiti will be permitted. Any visible tattoos must be covered. Students are permitted to wear sports outfits only during special physical education activities with prior approval from administration. 12
