STUDENT DRESS CODE
Grades Pre-K - 5

Policy:

The dress and grooming of LaSalle Parish students shall be neat and clean, promoting a positive, safe educational environment.  Apparel that disrupts educational activities and processes of the school, including extra-curricular activities, will result in the removal of the student from the regular school environment until acceptable apparel can be secured for the student.  The administration will be the final judge of whether a student’s clothing is appropriate for school.  Principals, faculty, and staff members will enforce the dress code.
