Dress Code

Estrella Stars


The Cartwright School District has a mandatory dress code to promote learning, increase safety on the school campus, foster school unity, and minimize clothing expenses by eliminating label competition. If a student is not in dress code, he/she will have to obtain the proper dress from home.

  • The uniform colors are navy blue bottoms, blue jeans are allowed, and solid white or solid light blue with long or short sleeves and a collar. Students may also wear Estrella Middle School gray or purple T-shirts, purchased from Estrella Middle School.
  • All clothing must be properly hemmed.
  • Uniforms may not be any more than one size larger or smaller than the student's actual size.
  • Skirts, skorts, shorts, and jumpers may not be worn more than 4 inches above the knee.
  • No baggy or oversized uniforms are acceptable.
  • Absolutely no "sagging."  Pants must have a belt loop to prevent sagging.
