New Castle adjusts dress code

NEW CASTLE — The New Castle school board has made some changes to the dress code for the coming year.

Superintendent George Gabriel explained the code is adjusted each year, based on things teachers and administrators see in the hallways that they deem unacceptable or acceptable.

The existing dress code remains in effect, with these additions:

•Pants or bottoms may not be striped or two-tone.

•Warm-up pants in solid colors are now being allowed.

•Track suits are allowed only on game day.

•All pants must coincide with the student’s height and weight.

•Fashionable rips, tears and/or slices are not permitted in pants, shorts or any other clothing.

•Tops cannot have any stripes or color blocking.

•All shirts must coincide with the student’s height and weight.

•Tights, leotards or leggings — limited to the basic colors allowed in the code — can be worn only under a skirt or shorts.

•In-school suspension will be prescribed with the second and third offense of non-compliance.
