Dress Code

HLN has a simple and straightforward dress code for all students:

  • Solid-colored shirts with short or long sleeves and a collar (polo, dress-style with button, or turtleneck).
  • Pants, shorts, capri pants, skirts, skorts or jumpers in the solid colors of navy blue, black, or any shade of khaki. Hem should be no greater than 3 inches above the knee.
  • No athletic clothing or denim is permitted.
  • Sweaters and outerwear must be a solid color with no logos, emblems, or messages written on them.  A collared shirt (in accord with the guidelines above) should be worn under the sweater at all times.
  • Shoes with non-marking soles are necessary for play in the gym.

Any apparel that conforms to the above-stated dress code is acceptable. Most students wear the same clothes every week to cottage school.
