Mariner Dress Code

Mariner Dress Code

No clothing, attire, jewelry, or accessories will be allowed that detracts from a safe and productive learning environment.


The Dress Code was developed by students, parents, teachers, and administrators for the express purpose of helping to promote and support a safe, peaceful, positive learning environment, free from distractions, for all students.  Students are expected to dress appropriately for school. Standards with regard to cleanliness, modesty, safety, and appropriateness of dress will be maintained.  Students who are inappropriately dressed will not be allowed to attend classes until the situation is remedied. Continual or flagrant violations of the Dress Code will result in after-school detention, in-school suspension, or other disciplinary consequence. If you have any questions regarding the dress code, please contact your student’s assistant principal or the PVUSD Student Services Office.
