RE: Jeggings to phase out by January 3rd

Dear Parents,

We appreciate your questions and feedback about our dress code. 

Please note, jeggings are a variation of leggings. Jeggings are defined as leggings that are designed to look like tight pants. Ponte jeggings (polyester knit and spandex) are still considered leggings and are made to be skin-tight. 

Leggings have not been part of the dress code at REACH (unless worn under a skirt or dress). However, jeggings are becoming more popular, with uniform stores selling them, making us aware of the importance of sending a dress code reminder to our students and parents.

However, we understand that this is causing some consternation, and we are willing to phase out the jeggings and give everyone until January to buy dress code appropriate replacements.

We recommend buying a chino or a khaki style pant (skinny-fit chinos are okay as long as the fit is appropriate for your child). “Chinos, or chino pants, are made with a lightweight cotton or cotton blend fabric and have visible stitching, which gives them a more finished, formal, and dressy look. Khakis, or khaki pants, are made with a heavier-weight cotton fabric.”

If you would like to speak further about your particular situation and how we can best support you, please contact us at 951-275-8820.

Thanks again,
