Students are required to wear black leather, close-toed, low-heeled, non-skid shoes with socks to class. Crocs and Keds are not permitted. Black leather tennis shoes are acceptable if worn for class purposes only and if they have a non-skid sole.
For sanitary purposes, shoes should only be worn in Culinary Arts classes. It is a state law that socks are worn in the kitchen.
Shoes can be purchased from any store that sells work shoes.
Jewelry, Artificial Nails, etc.
All jewelry including rings, large earrings, and bracelets must be removed for class. There is no secure area for these items, therefore; it is suggested that all jewelry is left at home before coming to class.
Artificial nails are a safety and sanitation hazard and cannot be worn in class.
Facial hair must be short and well-groomed.
