Shirts/Blouses: Collared long or short-sleeved dress shirts, polo shirts or turtlenecks, must be worn as the outer garment unless covered by Dress Code compliant sweater or sweatshirt.  All shirts/blouses must have sleeves.  Shirts/blouses must be tucked in at all times and must be buttoned one button from the top.  T-shirts or tank tops with insignias that are visible under the shirt are not allowed.  Small logos and/or monograms are permitted on the front of the shirt/blouse only.
