YCQ Dress Code
We believe that the way in which our students dress for school has an effect on the attitude of the students and the seriousness of their learning, as well as the overall culture of the school. As such, we will be strictly enforcing the dress code. Neat, comfortable, and modest dress (tzniut) is a part of good chinuch. Our dress code is intended to reflect an understanding that YCQ is a makom Torah where tzniut considerations, for both boys and girls, are a primary concern. The yeshiva will strictly enforce the dress code policies from the first day of school. We look to you, the parents, as our partners in the enforcement of the dress code of our yeshiva.
- Pants must be solid colors only, appropriately fitted (not tight). Absolutely NO jeans, denim pants, skinny jeans, joggers, and sweatpants can be worn in school. Pants must have side pockets and no denim stitching or jean style metal studs. (Nursery and Kindergarten boys may wear any type of bottoms.)
- Shirts must have collars. Inappropriate logos may not be worn. All shirt buttons must be closed except for the top button. (Nursery and Kindergarten boys do not need to wear a collared shirt.)
- Tzizit and Kippot must be worn at all times.
- Hair must be cut to proper uniform length for our yeshiva and may not be dyed at all. Socks are required at all times. No open toe (slides, sandals) or open back (crocs, naot) are permitted.
- Skirts must fully cover the knees when sitting or standing, front and back. All skirts must be of appropriate fit: not tight or form fitting. (Nursery girls may wear any type of bottoms. Kindergarten girls must wear skirts.)
- Shirts must be long enough so that no midriff is exposed when standing, sitting, or as a result of regular movement. Girls cannot wear sleeves shorter than those that approach the elbow. Shirts must reach the collar bone. Tank-tops, cap-sleeves, low-cut, and tight shirts may not be worn. Inappropriate logos may not be worn.
