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, knit or ribbed shirts. Girls may wear dresses and skirts that reach the top of the knee, capris, suits and blouses. All dresses and skirts must fall below the fingertips, unless they are worn with leggings.
Both boys and girls may wear sweaters, t-shirts, sweatshirts, dress slacks, khakis, jeans and non-athletic, knee-length shorts until October 1 and after April 15. Shoes must be worn at all times. Outdoor wear, jackets and coats, hats, sunglasses, and bandanas are not to be worn during school.
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. No stretch pants or leggings are permitted (unless the leggings are under a skirt or dress of modest length). 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; a boy’s hair must be of a conservative length and unnaturally colored hair is not permitted. Well-groomed and neatly trimmed beards are permitted for boys at administrative discretion. Girls may have pierced ears, but no other piercing is permitted and visible tattoos are not permitted.
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.
