CCS students are expected to wear clothing that is neat, clean, modest, and culturally acceptable in the Hutchinson area. Parents are responsible for ensuring that their student is in compliance with the dress code when departing for school. When in doubt, don't wear it/allow it.

The student body should encourage each other in submission to all school rules, including the dress code. We believe that a willing compliance with these standards prepares students to submit to greater authorities in their lives. Students are expected to be in dress code during the entire school day and at programs and activities unless otherwise indicated. Students will be sent to the office or home for dress code violations. The administration reserves the right to make changes to the dress code and to make judgments concerning appropriate dress or appearance.
 
Examples of dress that would not meet these general requirements are:
  • Revealing, tight-fitting clothing (skirts, dresses, shorts, jeans, tight slacks)
  • Revealing shirts (cleavage, mid-section, back, etc. exposed)
  • Undergarments that can be seen (including see-through material)
  • Sleeveless shirts
  • Visible tattoos
  • Piercings other than the ear(s) for girls
  • Piercings for boys
  • Unnatural hair colors (pink, blue, orange, etc.)
  • Outlandish hairstyles and/or drawings or markings in the hair
  • Straggly or unkempt hair, including facial hair. The administration has the right to require a student to cut his hair to an acceptable length.
  • Athletic shorts and pants, including yoga pants
  • Distressed clothing
  • Jeggings
