Dress Code

Odyssey School follows a similar dress code to the Coweta County School System. The complete Dress Code can be found in the Student Handbook.  The following is a summary of the dress code approved by the Odyssey Board of Directors:

  • No midriff tops, mesh, or see-through garments (shirts should cover the student’s entire torso)
  • No pants worn below the waist
  • No spaghetti straps, halter tops, muscle shirts, tank tops or sleeveless shirts for either boys or girls; girls may wear blouses that have one inch or more fabric coming down the arms from the shoulder
  • No sandals without heel straps
  • Athletic shoes should be worn at recess and PE (students without proper shoe wear will not be allowed on any playground equipment)
  • No flip flops
  • No hats should be worn inside the building (except on specially designated “hat days”)
  • No pajamas and/or sleepwear except for approved “pajama days”
  • Skirts and shorts should be of appropriate length (at least fingertip length) and worn at the waist level
  • No clothing that would be considered disruptive to others (i.e. tobacco ads, alcohol ads, inappropriate language, pictures, or drawings, Confederate flags [if the clothing is deemed by the school director to be displayed in a way that could reasonably be constructed as offensive or disruptive])

Students not abiding by the dress code will be written up; if necessary, the parents of students violating the dress code may be called to bring appropriate clothing to the school for their child; at the discretion of the school director or his/her designee, the student may be provided appropriate clothing for the day to cause the least disruption in class time.

Odyssey currently does not have school uniforms, but will have a school uniform beginning in the 2017-2018 school year.
