The following rules apply to all students while they are on the Foothill High School campus at any time and during school-sponsored activities.  The appearance of students while at school has a direct impact on behavior and learning. For this reason, the following standards for student dress have been established according to district policy and the California Education Code.  Dress requirements apply to all students, male and female.  Students must come to school each day in the school uniform.

  • Students may wear T-shirts as well as polos but they are not allowed to be solid red, maroon or blue in color, and cannot show any representation of any sports teams or neighborhood affiliation i.e. ESSJ or SSSJ on the clothing. There also cannot be any images or mention of drug, alcohol or sexually explict material on any article of clothing.
  • Shirts must cover all of your middle body. (No midriff showing)

  • Top cannot have spaghetti straps and cannot be backless

  • Jackets, sweatshirts, hoodies and pants can have color in them but cannot be solid red, maroon or blue
  • Sagging of pants or shorts is prohibited.  Boxer shorts must not be visible.

  • Shoes must be worn at all times and must black, white or brown. No shoes with red, blue, maroon or other colors as trim, logos, on the soles, or as accent colors.

  • Purses cannot be red, maroon or blue in color and cannot have drug, alcohol or inappropriate messaging or images.

  • Head coverings must be solid black, white, or with the Foothill logo – no other logos and no teams.

  • Belts must either be black, white or brown with plain belt buckles.

  • Backpacks must be black, white, or brown and free of any writing or tagging.

  • Accessories including all jewelry & all hair ornaments other than black, white, silver, gold, or clear are not allowed on campus.

  • For the safety of our students we recommend that students DO NOT change their clothing as they leave school grounds.


Any article of clothing or accessory, which does not comply with the dress code, student will be asked to remove item of clothing or accessory and leave it in the office, which can be picked up at the end of the school day.  Continual noncompliance with the dress code can result in more severe disciplinary action, including possible removal from school.
