2020-2021 OMS Dress Code

At Oslo Middle School, an Outstanding Student Learning Opportunity, we want you to continue to be part of the decision-making process for success. We have listened to your feedback and have decided that for the 2020-2021 school year, OMS will be following the SDIRC Dress Code.

We will no longer have a Unified Dress Code.


Some important reminders about the SDIRC Dress Code:

  • Pants are to be worn at the waist, with no visible undergarments, and present no safety hazards.
  • Dress, grooming practices, and personal hygiene will not interfere with schoolwork, create disorder, disrupt the educational program, or prevent the student from achieving educational objectives.
  • Hair and clothing must not block vision or restrict movement.
  • Dress practices must not be indecent, vulgar, or disruptive to an orderly learning environment, and must not cause or result in discrimination against, bullying, or harassing of other students or school staff.
  • Clothing and accessories will contain no inappropriate words or phrases, themes, or advertisements such as alcohol, tobacco, drugs, gang-related symbols, guns, knives, or violence promoting symbols.
  • Clothing will fit appropriately and include no oversized or undersized garments.

For all other rules and regulations pertaining to dress code not covered in this policy, please refer to the SDIRC Code of Conduct. Administration shall have the authority to judge whether or not the appearance of any student is disruptive to the educational function of the school or school activity. Students who violate the dress code will be required to change into items from our unified dress clothing closet or wait in designated area until appropriate unified dress clothing is brought to school. Repeated violations of dress code will be viewed as open defiance.
