Taking care in the way we present ourselves shows respect for self, respect for others, and respect for God. Therefore, we at Lakewood Park Christian School have implemented a dress code policy that is in harmony with our Christian values. Our intent is to allow for the expression of individuality, while taking into consideration the convictions and preferences of others.
Boys may wear collared shirts and knit or ribbed shirts. Girls may wear dresses, skirts, suits, blouses and capris which fall below the knees. Both boys and girls are permitted to wear sweaters, t-shirts, sweatshirts, dress slacks, khakis, jeans, non-breakaway wind pants and sweatpants without something printed on the backside. Shoes must be worn at all times and no flip-flops or slide sandals are allowed. Outdoor jackets and coats, hats, sunglasses and bandanas are not to be worn during school.
Students may wear loose-fitting, walking-length shorts during the First and Last Quarter. Shorts must go past the length of the fingertips when the arms are down to the sides.
All clothing must be in good repair – i.e., no holes, rips, tears or excessive fraying. Tight-fitting, sheer clothing is not permitted, as well as clothing with open backs, low necks, or an exposed midriff. All clothing must have sleeves, but sleeveless tops and dresses may be worn with a top or sweater that has sleeves. PreK-4 th graders may wear leggings, but leggings are not allowed in grades 5-6 unless they are worn under a dress or skirt that approaches the knee (no more than 4 inches above the knee).Hemlines of dresses and skirts, as well as slits in dresses and skirts, must reach the knee while standing and kneeling.
Students must be well-groomed; unnaturally colored hair is not permitted. A boy’s hair must not touch the eyebrows or fall past the shirt collar. Ponytails or ‘manbuns’ are not permitted. The student will have 5 days to obtain a haircut.
The administration reserves the right to determine if a student’s appearance is inappropriate in any manner. Please see the Student Handbook or speak to a member of the administration if you have further questions about the dress code policy.
