Student Dress Code

  • Dress For Success

    Covina-Valley Unified School District actively supports the concept of providing a safe, positive atmosphere on campuses in order to allow all students to excel, to feel physically and emotionally secure, to establish tolerance for everyone, to exercise personal responsibility and good judgment, and to focus on learning.  Student dress has been shown to influence behavior and the learning environment.
