Dress Code Letter to Families


Dear Rialto 㽶Ƶ District Families,

The mission of the Rialto 㽶Ƶ District (RUSD), the bridge that connects 㽶Ƶ 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 㽶Ƶ and a safe and engaging learning environment prepares 㽶Ƶ for academic success and their future. The student dress code should serve to support all 㽶Ƶ in developing a body-positive self-image. All 㽶Ƶ 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.
