Dress Code and Clothing

As a public elementary school, it is our responsibility to ensure that students obtain the knowledge, skills and habits needed to navigate our world successfully, while also respecting the right to express both individuality and creativity. It is our goal to ensure that all students feel comfortable, safe and respected at LaSalle II.

Dress Code

Students may wear a variety of colors and styles so long as they adhere to the following criteria:

  • Shorts, skirts, and dresses must cover your bottom when sitting and/or standing.·
  • Straps less than 3 finger-widths, tube tops, or halter top dresses and shirts are not allowed unless worn under a cardigan or jacket.
  • Underclothing must not be visible. Clothing must cover the stomach and back, even when stretching.
  • Clothing and footwear must not present a safety hazard to the wearer or to others. Students should use discretion when wearing high heels, as we have outdoor recess daily. Flip-flops and shoes with wheels (ie. Heeley’s) are not permitted.

The following are not permitted:

  • Hoods or hats worn indoors (hooded sweatshirts are permitted indoors with hoods down)
  • Mesh or see-through clothing
  • Clothing with inappropriate language or designs (e.g., symbols, pictures or messages that promote illegal substances, convey information that is distasteful, harassing, obscene, or gang-related)
  • As a courtesy to those with allergies or asthma, refrain from wearing excessive perfume, cologne, or body spray.

Dress code requirements may be relaxed at staff discretion for student performances, sports and other activities.

Please note that in cases of students violating these policies, we will contact you so that you can bring the proper attire that day. Administration has the final authority to determine the suitability of a students’ dress. Students whose dress is inappropriate will have to call home for a parent/guardian to bring other clothing to school. Our most important goal is to provide a safe, secure, and supportive learning environment. As always, your cooperation and support is needed to contribute to the establishment of a positive learning atmosphere for everyone.
