2021-22 RESA UNIFORMS
RESA Middle School Uniform Policy
All RESA Middle School students are required to follow the uniform code
to and from RESA every day during the 2021-2022 school year.
Uniform Style and Colors:
The uniform shirt will be a collared/buttoned polo shirt or button-down oxford in white, blue, green, or black (solid in color).
Pants, skirts (knee length), and shorts (knee length) will be khaki, blue, green, or black, provided they are not made out of denim. As of 11/22/2021 black denim pants are allowed.
Shirts worn under the uniform may be of any color, provided they are not obscene, offensive, or disruptive to the learning environment.
Shoes must be low-heeled, closed-toe, and have hard soles. Crocs are allowed except for during P.E.
Students may wear R.E.S.A. spirit shirts and hoodies any day.
RESA IDs and lanyards are a part of the uniform. Students are required to wear their ID around their neck, so it is visible at all times. Lanyard color is represented by grade level and must be worn appropriately. IDs may not be altered or defaced in any way, i.e., stickers, marker, scratched, etc.
RESA team jerseys may be worn only on game days and not in PE class. Only members of the team may wear their assigned jerseys.
How to Wear the RESA Uniform:
Shirts, shorts, skirts, and trousers must fit appropriately.
Students must wear pants/shorts/skirts at the waist.
Exposing the stomach area or upper torso of the body is not allowed.
Shirts and tops are too short if the midriff is exposed when arms are raised.
Tights or leggings may be worn under a skirt or shorts.
There will be no substitutions or alterations of the uniform, and it must be kept clean and neat. If you alter the uniform, you will be considered out of uniform.
No jeans or denim
No leggings, leotards, or spandex, unless worn under a skirt or shorts.
No undergarments may be showing.
No coats or jackets may be worn while in the building. (If taking a coat to PE, you may carry the coat to class, but it may not be worn in the halls).
No headwear may be worn in the building: no caps, hoods, handkerchiefs, durags, scarves, bandanas, picks, or combs.
Sleeveless shirts are not allowed.
No flip-flops, slippers, house shoes, open-toed shoes, or sandals.
RESA PE shirts may not be worn outside of PE class unless the student is not enrolled in PE.
Students may wear sweaters and sweatshirts over their uniforms, provided they are school-appropriate. We do not consider hooded sweatshirts to be jackets; therefore, they are allowed as long as the hood isn’t worn on the head. This includes hooded sweatshirts with zippers.
The only headwear that is allowed is bandanas or scarves without paisley print to act as a headband.
What happens when a student violates the dress code?
Dress code violations are addressed as infractions in the student code of conduct. Students out of uniform will be served lunch detention and directed to call home for a guardian to bring the appropriate school uniform. Repeated violations are subject to progressive discipline, which may be referred to GDM (2).
ADMINISTRATION ALWAYS HAS THE DISCRETION TO DETERMINE IF SOMETHING WORN
IS INAPPROPRIATE OR APPROPRIATE. ANY ADDITIONAL DECISIONS MADE IN REGARD
TO THE UNIFORM POLICY WILL BE IMPLEMENTED BY THE ADMINISTRATION.
