An employee’s dress or attire is an important part of these impressions.

o Staff must dress neatly and appropriately for working with young children and for meeting parents.
o Apparel promoting other universities should be avoided.
o Shirts should be long enough to touch pants and have appropriate necklines. Underwear of all types should not be showing and visible cleavage is not acceptable.
o Shorts and skirts need to be of appropriate length (when arms are resting at your side, fingers should not be able to touch bare skin).
