First Lutheran School has adopted a Uniform Dress Code for students in grades Kindergarten through Grade Six. The Uniform Dress Code has been adopted placing emphasis on good taste, modesty, safety, neatness, cleanliness, and decency within a Christ-centered environment.  Our school’s philosophy of high expectations and high standards of excellence carries through in our holding high expectations in terms of the dress of the students.  Our school is a special place with special standards. The following apply to all school activities.

 

In order to insure follow-through and maintenance of standard appearance in our Uniform Dress Code, the cooperation of the parent is essential.  Parents are to check to make sure that their children are “within the code” before they leave the house each morning.  They are also asked to cooperate with the school when we deal with students who violate the Code.  The faculty will make daily checks to evaluate the dress of each student when they enter class in the morning.  We ask that parents make every effort to send their children off to school dressed within the Code guidelines.
