Dress Code

Fort Myers High School Dress Code 2021-2022

The purpose of the Dress Code is to encourage students to focus on the learning process without the distractions of unsuitable dress and grooming. Students shall maintain a clean, orderly appearance at all times.  The responsibility for the personal appearance of the student and the adherence to the dress code policy rests with the parent/guardian and the student.  Personal appearance shall not distract from the educational process.  According to the School Board of Lee County, each school has the authority to establish additional standards.

The following guidelines establish the minimum acceptable standards for student dress to be interpreted and enforced by the administration and staff at Fort Myers High School.  Students are required to comply with this dress code while on school grounds.


  • Shorts and Leggings will be PROHIBITED for the 2021-2022 school year
  • All skirts worn should be fingertip length/bottoms should not have any skin exposed, rips or frays and should be worn at the waist with a belt, if necessary
  • Sleeveless, bare mid -drift, transparent, or any top depicting illegal substances, inappropriate pictures, messages, etc. are prohibited
  • All shirts/tops must be worn at the waist line with no skin or mid-section exposed
  • No ripped or torn pants or jeans

Note: The school administration reserves the right to appraise any current fashion or fad and determine whether it is appropriate for school wear. Students must be in dress code compliance upon entering school grounds, during all after school events, and at all times while students are on campus.  Lee County District Dress Code Policy is still the standard and will be enforced.

The dress code will be checked daily and strongly enforced.  Any student in violation of the dress code will receive disciplinary actions according to the student code of conduct.
