Homecoming 2013 Dress Code CHS Administration Before you begin to watch… Your homeroom teacher is not the person to ask your questions regarding dress code. If you have any questions following the viewing of this slideshow, please find Ms. Tompkins in W211 before or after school. Do NOT interrupt class to ask a question about your dress. Also, you cannot buy tickets without having seen this slideshow. Why does CHS have a Homecoming dress code? The administration and faculty want you to make good, appropriate choices, not inhibit your style. However, this is a SCHOOL SPONSORED event which requires appropriate attire. We want everyone to be comfortable and safe. BEFORE WE BEGIN…answer a few common questions: 1) Can I wear a strapless dress? YES! As long as it meets all other dress code requirements 2) What happens if I arrive at homecoming and my dress does NOT meet dress code? You will be going home and you will NOT get a refund. 3) My date does not go to school here, what if her/his attire does not meet dress code? You will be going home and you will NOT get a refund. Please make sure your date has viewed the PowerPoint on dress code #1 #1: Dresses may not be cut below the bust line. The bust line makes a full circle around your body and includes the side directly under the armpit. With your arms down by your side, if skin from your arms touches (or can touch)skin on the front part of your body, below the bust line, the dress is inappropriate. This dress meets dress code for #1 This dress DOES NOT meet dress code If you wore this, you would be asked to leave #2: Dresses may be backless; however, they may not be cut below the natural waist. Your waist is the smallest part of your midsection. The dress CANNOT be below the small curve of your back. These dresses meet dress code These dresses DO NOT meet dress code.

Slits in a dress are included in length, they cannot be shorter than your fingertips. Other Dress Code Rules #5 Dresses may not be constructed with seethrough fabrics such as: Tulle, Netting, or Illusion (skin color inserts). #6 No pinning will be allowed as an alteration for a dress if without the pins the dress does not meet the dress code. #7 Fabric inserts must be sewn as alterations to the dress. No skin color inserts will be allowed. This still gives the illusion. #8 No cover-ups (shawls/wraps, sweaters, coats) will be allowed over dresses that do not meet the dress code. #9 Undergarments should not be visible. #10: Formal Tuxedoes or Dress Suit (Coat & Tie) for Gentlemen While attending a semi-formal event, shirts should be worn at all times. NO JEANS! This is inappropriate attire for a semi-formal event. NO Hats or t-shirts with the look of formal attire. Homecoming Dress Code Guidelines While we will be reasonable in our interpretation of these guidelines, students and guests dressed inappropriately will not be allowed to enter or attend homecoming. Rumor Has it…and rumor is wrong Rumor has it we will “let it slide” if you don’t meet dress code. RUMOR IS WRONG. YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE IF YOU DO NOT MEET DRESS CODE. There is NO refund for students asked to leave due to dress code violation. Tickets Sales/Non CHS Forms Ticket Sales will take place Wednesday, October 2 through Friday, October 11 during lunch.
