Dress Code

All students at LCMS West Campus are expected to select a mode of dress that is appropriate for school activities. Students are prohibited from wearing any type of apparel which distracts from the educational environment. When students are required to change clothes to attend school, a parent will be called. The expectations include:

1. Clothing should cover the body from mid-chest to mid-thigh.   For example, all clothing should be non-revealing in the chest area and midriff area whether standing or sitting.
2. Skin should not be visible 6 inches above the knee when students are wearing shorts, jeans, or leggings containing holes or tears.  
3. Hats and caps, bandanas, and other head coverings are not appropriate attire for school. 
4. No clothing with any reference to drugs, sex, alcohol, violence or profanity, and gang affiliation clothing, accessories, styles will not be allowed to be worn at school.
5. No tank tops, halter tops, tube tops, or tops that reveal parts of the midriff.  Sleeveless shirts or dresses must cover the majority of the shoulder and be non-revealing in the chest area.  Undershirts that can be seen through sheer shirts must follow this dress code.
