Updated Dress Code Policy
2013 – 2014

PYLUSD School Board Policies establish that students shall wear appropriate clothing and footwear and groom themselves for school in a manner that does not offend the decency of, reflect negatively on, or detract from any phase of the educational program. The Bernardo Yorba Middle School administration and staff believes that dress affects the academic environment at school, and, in some cases, can be disruptive to the learning environment. Therefore, the following dress codes apply at all times to students while on campus or in attendance at any school event. Due to changing trends in clothing, jewelry, accessories and grooming styles, restrictions may change when necessary. Any item may be deemed inappropriate at the discretion of an administrator. The following guidelines are minimum standards for dress. Parents may set standards which are more restrictive than those indicated in this dress code.
All clothing must be clean, in good repair and worn in good taste: Garments with holes (including “faux” holes), un-hemmed or frayed hems are not allowed. All clothing must be size-appropriate (not too baggy or too tight) for the students. P.E. uniforms should only be worn during P.E. class except with permission of an administrator.
Shirts/Tops: Clothing shall be appropriately modest, conceal undergarments at all times and cover the shoulder. Top wear must overlap the waistline so that no bare midriff or undergarments show. (Low necklines, cut outs, halters, off-the-shoulder, tank tops, sheer garments, and backless dresses or blouses should be saved for non-school related activities, as they do not meet school dress code requirements.)
Pants/Shorts/Skirts/Dresses: These must reach mid-thigh or to the end of the index finger when arm and hand are extended downward. Undergarments cannot be visible in any way. Flannel pants, pajamas, tight sweat pants, leggings, tight skirts (“pencil skirts” or “mini skirts”) are not acceptable school attire.
Footwear:  Students must wear fully-enclosed footwear on campus at all times.
“Flip-flops,” sandals, slippers, and footwear with steel toes are not permitted.
Illegal/Obscene/Offensive: Items (apparel, jewelry, accessories or personal belongings) which could be construed as depicting or promoting immoral, illegal, obscene, violent, or offensive content will not be allowed. Items which depict alcohol, narcotics, tobacco, or drugs are also prohibited. Garments or paraphernalia that suggests gang or tagger involvement/affiliation or reference to such are prohibited. Any item or manner of grooming which by virtue of color, arrangement, trademark, universal meaning, or any other attribute, expresses or advocates racial, ethnic, or religious prejudice or might tend to motivate student to commit acts that disrupt the orderly operation of the school are prohibited.
Jewelry/Accessories/Sunglasses: Chains (including wallet chains), studded jewelry, and gloves are not permitted on campus. Non-prescription sunglasses are not acceptable school wear. Prescription glasses worn in the classroom should not be so heavily tinted as to preclude teacher-student eye contact unless such tinting is specifically prescribed by a physician.
Hats and Hoods: Baseball caps with the BYMS logo may be purchased at school or from our uniform supplier and may be worn as sun protection outside. Hats other than those with the official BYMS logo are not allowed. The bill of the hat must be worn in front. Hoods may be worn up only as protection from rain.

Personal Grooming: Hair must be clean, neat, and combed so as not to cover the eyes. Extremes in hairstyle, hair color, or makeup (i.e. facial paints, stickers, etc.) will not be allowed. ­Writing on arms, hands, legs, clothes, etc. is not allowed.

January 11 2012

Dear Event Volunteers:

Congratulations on earning $1,003.85 towards Bernardo Yorba Entertainment Unit. On behalf of AES Electronics Recycling Inc., I would like to personally thank you for your recent contribution of time to the January 7, 2012 collection event at Bernardo Yorba Middle School. This event could not have been a success without the help of the many volunteers who donated their time.

Due to your incredible efforts the school collected vast quantities of e-waste which will greatly benefit the Bernardo Yorba Entertainment Unit. The collection of this considerable amount of e-waste was all possible due to the dedication and hard work of individuals like your event coordinator Lisa Doble, the students, parents and volunteers whom were a crucial part of the success of the our event. They all went above and beyond expectations to help the event run efficiently.

The uplifting spirit and willingness of the volunteers left us at awe. We are more than happy to collaborate with such great volunteers and coordinator to help benefit this wonderful cause. Satisfied with the outcome of the event, we would gladly participate in any future plans for additional events and hope you feel the same way.

Once again, AES Recycling Inc. thanks you for your efforts and we invite you to continue recycling e-waste to help create and maintain a greener place for all to live.
