Hilltop is not a uniform school.
Our dress code expectations will be in alignment with the Highline School District’s approved policy. The policy in our district is that, “Students are reminded that their appearance significantly affects the way others respond to them. Matters of dress are primarily the responsibility of students and their families. Students dress shall not be regulated except when there is a reasonable expectation that a health or safety hazard shall be presented by the student’s dress or appearance, damage to the school property shall result from the student’s dress, and/or the students dress or appearance shall create a substantial disruption of the educational process and/or learning environment at school.
Students at Hilltop will be expected to dress in a way that allows them to participate in all learning activities including recess, physical education, and moving around the classroom.
Administration reserves the right to restrict clothing items or accessories that disrupt teaching and learning.
