Weather changes, dress code does not

For the past few weeks, students at PWHS may have heard Marcus, the security guard, speak at lunch about the dress code policies. With the warm weather right around the corner, teachers are enforcing the dress code more strictly here at Pueblo West High school. Below is a quick list of the dress code policies:

For Boys:

  • Excessively baggy pants, excessively ragged pants that are torn, ripped or cut up are not allowed.
