The mission of the Rialto Unified School District (RUSD), the bridge that connects students to their aspirations for the future, is to ensure each student achieves personal and career fulfillment within a global society. RUSD believes that high expectations for students and a safe and engaging learning environment prepares students for academic success and their future. The student dress code should serve to support all students in developing a body-positive self-image. All students are expected to adhere to the RUSD Student Dress and Grooming Policy 5132, which includes, but is not limited to, the three expectations below:
Clothing must cover and conceal undergarments; no private parts, including midriff, should be visible
Appropriate shoes must be worn at all times
Clothing, backpacks, and accessories must be free of images and content that are sexually suggestive, depict drugs, alcohol, or tobacco use, firearms, gang-related images, or other illegal activities
Staff are responsible for enforcing Policy 5132. Students who do not meet Policy expectations will be counseled on making appropriate decisions. If the behavior continues, progressive discipline will be administered. Students in need of clothing support will be referred to the RUSD Kindness Connection.
If you have any questions regarding this information, please contact your child’s school.
Sincerely, Angela Brantley Lead Student Services Agent
