Shorts length - at the top of the knees
Hair - must be a naturally occurring hair color, no mohawk/fauxhawk style
Clothing - form-fitting garments such as leggings, jeggings, tights, and yoga/athletic pants must be covered by a top garment that meets the longest finger-tip rule all the way around.
Sleeveless shirts and traditional tank tops are permitted for girls (not including razor back tops or sportswear) as long as an undershirt is worn or the shirt is tight fitting under the arms.
Undergarments must not be visible at any time.
Clothing with holes above the knees are not permitted
