The expectations for dress at school are set at a higher standard than virtually any other place students attend in order to promote the understanding that our school is a place for learning. The freedom to express oneself has limitations that begin at the school door. In an effort to maintain safety, an orderly and non-disruptive learning environment, and focus on modesty, the following expectations will be in place for William Ellis students in regard to the apparel choices they can make. If in question, “appropriate” is decided by an administrator. If a student’s attire is determined to not be appropriate, the student will be directed to change into their PE uniform. If the student does not have their PE uniform at school, they will be loaned a PE uniform from the office. This will allow minimal loss of instructional time.
Clothing for all students must meet the following guidelines: (reference DCS Student Code)
All clothing, skirts, shorts, and dresses are of an appropriate length when they fall at mid-thigh or longer. Shorts should have an inseam of at least 3 inches. The student can move comfortably without needing to compensate for their movements for their attire.
Pants, shorts, skirts must be secured at the waist.
There may be no holes in clothing that are above mid-thigh that expose bare skin. Leggings may be worn under jeans to cover bare skin. No holes in inappropriate places will be allowed in any clothing.
At no time may undergarments be visible.
No tank tops or spaghetti straps. Sleeveless shirts should have a 3-finger width or greater.
Leggings, jeggings, biker shorts, and yoga pants may be worn when they are not see-through/sheer and worn with a shirt that covers the midriff without having to compensate and re-adjust.
Shoes must be worn at all times and no shoes with wheels are allowed.
Clothing must overlap at the waist at all times. No bare midriffs are allowed. This can be checked by extending your arms above your head with no midriff showing.
No hats, bandanas, sunglasses, or head coverings are allowed to be worn in any building unless for religious reasons.
Earpods/Earbuds, headphones, etc are only to be worn during class for instructional purposes with permission from the teacher.
Any apparel that can be considered sexually, culturally, or institutionally offensive will be allowed. Clothing may not be offensive and have any reference to tobacco products, alcohol products, narcotics, or weapons, or causes a disruption to learning.
Bulky outerwear such as overcoats, raincoats, or trench coats may not be worn during the school day.
Blankets are not permitted at any time.
Davie County Schools P.E. uniforms and tennis shoes are required for physical education activities and areas.
Administrators have the right to address any dress code issues which go beyond the dress code articulated above but believe the dress code issue significantly violates the intent of School Board Policy 4316. This dress code applies to all WEMS students attending or participating in any school sponsored activities or events.
All students with dress code violations will be required to correct the violation (change clothes and/or wear PE uniform). Principals will make reasonable accommodations for students involved in special activities or projects approved by the school, where such dress would not be conforming to this dress code. Individual schools may determine additional restrictions beyond those outlined in this code.

Davie Respect Initiative
"My name is Kaylee Lewis and I am a Sophomore at Davie High and I am working on a service project for the Davie Respect Initiative. For my project, I want to receive as many donations as possible which is why I am also contacting the middle schools. For the donation drive, my goal is to collect essential items so that I can make care packages with them and give them out to communities in need here in Davie County. I plan to give them out at churches and apartments with low-income residents. Suggested items are listed below along with a flyer to spread the word."
