Dress Code

Bergen Elementary appeals to your sense of good judgment in encouraging students to dress neatly, take pride in their appearance, and be ready for the day’s activities. Hats cannot be worn in class by students. Midriff shirts, short shorts, spaghetti straps and halter tops are not allowed. Roller shoes are not permitted.

Please help the school protect your students by insisting that adequate clothing be worn during the winter. Support the school by ensuring your student dresses appropriately for the weather. The school will attempt to send all students outside except on the very coldest or wettest days.

Dress Code Guidance in Jeffco

Responsibility for student dress and appearance generally rests with individual students and their families. Students may wish to express themselves by the manner of their dress and appearance; however, students shall not wear clothing or affect an appearance at school or school-sanctioned activities or events that is disruptive to the educational environment. Jeffco Public Schools standards on student attire are intended to help students focus on schoolwork, reduce discipline problems, and improve school order and safety.

Disciplinary action for violating the student dress code shall include notifying the student of the violation and requiring that the dress or appearance be corrected before the student reenters the classroom, school environment, or school-sanctioned activity or event. At the discretion of the building-level administrator, a family conference may be held. More serious consequences may result from repeated or serious violations.
