Dress Codes

Teachers, Paraprofessionals, and Clerical Substitutes

Classroom and office substitute positions are generally required to dress in business casual dress, although jeans and Knights spirit wear is acceptable on Fridays.

  • When working in physical education, exercise clothes are permitted
  • When working in special education programs, comfortable clothing and tennis shoes are permitted

Food Service Substitutes

The kitchens can get warm so please dress comfortably for warmer environments.

  • A polo or plain short-sleeved shirt is recommended.
  • Light pants such as Khakis (tan, blue, or black in color) are also recommended. Jeans are allowed, however, you may find that they are too hot to wear in the kitchens.
  • Shoes need to be leather and closed-toed, such as tennis shoes or non-skid brand shoes.
  • A hair restraint such as a visor or cap must be worn. The kitchens will have hairnets available if you do not have a visor or cap.
  • Aprons will be provided by the kitchens.
  • Keep fingernails trimmed and without polish. False nails are not permitted in the kitchens.
  • Hair should be pulled back or pinned up.
  • Perfume and jewelry are not permitted. A plain wedding band is allowed but not recommended.

Custodial Substitutes

Custodial substitutes will complete a variety of tasks on their shifts, some of which may require cleaning, so comfortable clothing is highly recommended. T-shirts, jeans and tennis shoes that can (and most likely will) get dirty are preferred.

Winter Months

During the winter, some substitute assignments may require time outside, whether that is crossing guard duty, parking lot supervision, or recess. Custodial assignments may require shoveling snow out of the paths of doorways. You will receive a notification if your assignment requires outside time, but it may be helpful to keep hats, mittens, scarves, boots, etc. in your vehicle on cold and snowy days.
