Walker’s dress code has evolved over many decades to represent the styles of the times, while maintaining school traditions. A defined dress code allows us to guide girls to make clothing choices while ensuring their confidence and creating an environment that looks professional and is conducive to learning.
Students must be in dress code from 7:30 a.m.-3:25 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. On Wednesday, students must be in dress code from 7:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. unless participating in Walker’s Wednesday (see below).
During the year, there are dress down and spirit days when the dress code is not in effect.
All clothing should be neat, clean, and in good repair; no bare midriffs or cutouts. Head coverings for cultural or religious purposes are allowed.
A student who is out of dress code will be expected to find an appropriate change of clothes to change into for the duration of the academic day. The student will then receive a dress code violation. Three such violations will result in a Friday evening detention.
Every Wednesday will be a dress down day with Walker’s wear (see below). All clothing should be neat, clean, and in good repair. Apparel must not display alcohol, drugs, or profanity. Sweatpants, leggings, and jeans are permitted. All shorts must be fingertip length. Blankets may not be worn as outerwear.
Students must wear Walker’s wear on top including dress code tops (short or long-sleeved) or Walker’s gear (including team shirts, the School seal, Walker’s, W or W/Walker’s marks).
Approved bottoms include leggings (no sheer panels or cutouts), sweatpants, athletic shorts (fingertip length or longer) and jeans (in good repair).
No slippers or headwear (unless required for cultural or religious purposes).
For special dinners and other required events, students are often expected to wear “special event dress” which consists of dress pants, fingertip length skirts or dresses with dress shoes (no athletic sneakers) in good repair.
During the year there are dress down and spirit days when the dress code is not in effect. All clothing should be neat, clean, and in good repair; no bare midriffs or cutouts. Head coverings for cultural or religious purposes are allowed.
