Dress Code

The Wekiva High School dress code policy is an extension of the OCPS Dress Code policy. At any time the administration has the right to determine if a specific article of clothing is acceptable.

 

When students are not in compliance with the dress code they will be sent to the discipline office where the appropriate consequence (per table below) will be given. Students must be able to correct the dress code issue to return to class. If students are unable to correct the dress code issue they will be placed in in school suspension for the remainder of the day.
