Structured Dress Code
Desert Springs Preparatory follows a structured dress code Monday through Friday with a “free” dress day every half day. Our dress code sets us apart from other elementary schools and maintains a strong focus on learning. This “free” dress day will adhere to the PVSchools code of conduct related to school dress. For full details please see the DSPES Student Agreement. Students not observing structured dress code will be asked to change into appropriate dress.
Tops include colored “polo” style shirts in the following solid colors: black, navy blue, light blue, red, pink and white. Desert Springs Preparatory spirit shirts and/or shorts can also be worn on any day with the appropriate tops or bottoms. DSPES club shirts are not structured spirit wear, but may be worn on the day of club meetings or events as approved by a club leader, and on free dress days.
The structured dress code includes solid black, solid navy, or solid khaki bottoms. These could be pants, leggings, shorts, skirts, capris or solid, logo free & stripe free athletic shorts. Shorts must be worn at the waist and fall above the knee.
Closed toe shoes, sneakers, boots, loafers, etc. No open toe shoes, sandals or flip-flops.
Dress for Success
We display neatness, and modesty. The dress code is one way we show we are SOAR students. Decisions as to the appropriateness of dress rest with the principal.
