(The dress code is also published in the Student Handbook.)
– Basic Uniform
– Summer Uniform Shirt
– 1/4 Zip Pullover or Vest
– Hair and jewelry
Students must wear a dress shirt, a necktie properly fitted to the neck, properly fitted dress slacks (which must include a conservative-style belt), socks, and dress shoes, or solid color canvas-top boat shoes.
Dress slacks must be properly fitted at the waist. Dress slacks should be of a
conservative, plain color (black, blue, gray, brown, khaki or tan). Carpenter pants, cargo pants, jeans, shorts, plaid, etc. are not acceptable.
A dress shirt is a shirt that is designed to be worn with a necktie and is either a solid color or has a conservative pattern. Shirts must be tucked in properly. When a T-shirt is worn under the dress shirt, it must be white with no writing or pictures.
Early Fall/Late Spring Uniform Shirt
Unless stated to the contrary, students may wear a Devon Prep golf shirt (see purchasing information above), in place of the dress shirt and tie from the first Monday in April until the last Friday in October. This change applies only to the shirt, not to the rest of the dress code.
Dress shoes are defined as leather or leather-like shoes such as would be worn on a formal occasion.
In addition to the basic uniform, a student may wear the Devon Prep regulation 1/4 zip pullover or vest. Sweatshirts may not be worn at any time.
Hair and Jewelry
Students must be clean-shaven and well-groomed. Hair must be neatly styled and may not be excessive in length or artificially colored. Earrings may not be worn and students may not have other piercings. The only acceptable jewelry items are religious medals on plain chains, Devon Prep ring, and a watch.
Ties and dress shoes need not be worn during recreation. Appropriate attire for gym classes will be dictated by the gym teachers once school begins. Sneakers must be worn on the gym floor.
The school dress code is in effect from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Students are not permitted to change clothes during school hours, except in the locker rooms for physical education classes. After school, clothes may be changed only in locker rooms or bathrooms.
For purposes of clarification, the administration will determine what constitutes proper dress code.
Casual, but appropriate, dress is required at all School events outside regular school hours.
