Dress Code

The traditional middle school uniform dress code has been suspended.  In its place, Rucker students should  follow our school board's dress code policy (see below) for the 2023-24 school year.

Please refer to the detailed list of appropriate clothing (p. 8-9 of the Student Handbook). 



Students are expected to meet the dress code requirements each day.  Dress code violations begin as a level one offense and become more serious with each infraction.  The guidelines stated above are not all inclusive, and administrative discretion will be used on issues not addressed.


The administration of AR Rucker Middle School would like to thank you for voicing your concerns, in regards to the dress code policy.  All of your concerns have been heard and we have made the following addendum to the dress code policy:

Students are not allowed to have holes above their knees. A hole is defined as an area of the pants that would display skin, if it is not covered with a cloth or other garment. 

No leggings, tights, biker shorts, boxer shorts, etc. can be worn to cover holes above your knees.

Pants that are made with ragged areas and covered with a sewn-in patch are acceptable, as long as no skin can be seen.
