Dress Code

Roosevelt A. Montoya students are expected to dress appropriately for the business of education. Cleanliness, good grooming, and modesty are elements of appropriate dress.  Students and parents may determine personal appearance and dress except where such appearance presents a health or safety hazard or a disruption to the educational process.

Schools in the Manzano cluster have created a consistent K-12 dress code.  At Roosevelt these policies are in effect at school and at all school-sponsored events.


  1. Clothing related to gang appearance may not be worn.  This includes, but is not limited to, Old English lettering, “homies” shirts, and “memory” shirts.  Other trends in gang attire will be identified by the school administration.

  2. Clothing, tattoos, or accessories, which advertise, display or promote any drug (including tobacco and alcohol) sexual innuendo, violence, weaponry, profanity, hate, or bigotry towards any group are unacceptable.

  3. Students may not wear extended (hanging) belts, bandannas, wallet chains, spiked jewelry, or hairnets.

  4. Hats, headgear, and sunglasses are allowed outside of buildings only. Hats with bills must be worn with bill forward.

  5. No skin may show between the bottom of a shirt or blouse and the top of pants or skirts. Shoulder straps must be a minimum of two (2) inches wide.  (Cleavage must be completely covered.)  Shirts may not have holes. 

  6. Pants should rest no lower than hip level; sagging and bagging are not allowed.  Shorts and skirts should be no shorter than fist level when standing upright and arms are at the side.  Excessively baggy or low-hanging pants are prohibited. The waistband should be between the belly button and the hipbone.  Students must wear a belt if their pants are too big to stay on their waist on their own.  Pants may not have holes. 

  7. Shoes or durable footwear must be worn on campus at all times.  (No slippers)

  8. Earrings and other adornment or jewelry must not present a health or safety hazard.

  9. Pajama bottoms (pants) are not acceptable as proper dress code attire.
