Honors Night Dress Standard

Because TCHS Honors Night on April 24th is a school event, our school dress standards will apply. We want our students to be recognized in a positive manner for their academic accomplishments and not criticized for their clothing choices.

 Appropriate attire for males and females is expected.  Students should wear dress casual or Sunday attire for the ceremony.  Males and females can wear dress pants and shirts, and females can also wear dresses or skirts. Students who may have a hardship getting appropriate attire are encouraged to contact their guidance counselor.

 When planning what your student will wear, please consult the complete dress code that can be found in the student handbook under the student tab on our TCHS webpage.

Dress Standards

  • Skirts/dress shorts must be no shorter than 3 inches from the crease of the knee/leg. Transparent skirts must also have undergarments that measure this length. Leggings/panty hose should be covered with a dress/skirt that measures this length.
  • Cleavage should be covered. A tank top under a dress/blouse or sweater should be worn to cover cleavage.
  • Shoulders should be covered with at least a cap sleeve. Sleeves with peep holes and/or tank tops should be covered with a sweater or jacket.
  • Clothing should completely cover undergarments.
  • Shirts/Blouses/Dresses that dip very low in the back should be covered with a sweater or jacket.
  • Pants should be worn at the waist.
  • Earrings are the only visible body piercings allowed for ladies. Gentlemen with visible body piercings of any kind violate the dress standards.
  • Ladies and gentlemen may wear dress pants.

*Dress standards as stated in the Code of Conduct will be followed.


Students not in dress code on Honors Night will not be allowed to participate in the ceremony and will be removed from the line. Administrators will check dress code when students arrive.  Students who arrive after the ceremony begins will not be allowed to participate.

 At TCHS, our students are equipped with Character, Achievement, Respect, Responsibility, Readiness, Excellence and Service. We know our students will maintain the expectations clearly expressed in our school mission statement.
