What is the dress code at HCS?
At Helderberg Christian School, we base our dress code on the scriptures. We dress to bring honor to God and enhance our witness for Christ to the world. Based on our philosophy, we require the following:
  • Students must dress in a neat, clean, and modest manner.
  • On days when Chapel is scheduled, girls must wear a dress, and boys must wear slacks and a collared shirt or sweater.
  • Skirts and dresses should be knee-length.
  • We prefer that students wear collared shirts or sweaters, but if they wear a t-shirt, it should not have offensive language, logos, or pictures on it.
  • We prefer that students wear dress pants, but they may wear jeans if they are not ripped, baggy, or excessively faded.
  • We do not permit short shorts, miniskirts, tight pants, bare midriffs, tank tops, spaghetti straps, or muscle shirts.
  • Students may wear gym clothing during gym class, and this can include modest-length shorts, sweat pants, loose fitting t-shirts, and sneakers.
  • Students may only wear sweat pants during gym class.
  • Students must always wear shoes.
What if my child must be absent?
If your child must be absent due to illness, a parent should call the school office between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. Any time a student comes to school after an absence, a parent must provide a note.
