DRESS CODE

IMPORTANT: Leman Academy Dress Code is applicable all through the school year up to and including 8th Grade Commencement. Please see administration if you have any questions pertaining to the Dress Code. Thank you for your partnership.

A scholar’s clothing at LAE must be of such a nature that it is not disruptive to the educational atmosphere of the classroom, distracting to other scholars, and adheres to standards of modesty and good taste. The expectations and standards for the dress and appearance of LAE scholars are geared toward promoting a positive, productive and safe academic and social environment. Scholars of LAE are expected to dress in a manner that demonstrates respect for themselves and others within our school’s learning environment.

Clothing should be modest, neat, clean and in good repair. It is our belief that the responsibility for compliance with the scholars’ dress and appearance belongs to both parents and scholars. Parents and guardians, please be aware of what your child is planning to wear as he/she leaves for school. In all matters of dress and/or personal appearance, the administration of LAE is the final authority on what is appropriate or not appropriate for scholars to wear at school. The administrative team reserves the right to ask scholars to change their clothing if their clothing is considered inappropriate or unsafe.

Standardized Dress Code Guidelines

You may choose from the following items for your child’s choice of clothing/dress at LAE. You may mix and match from the items on the list. Please note that all items need to adhere to the dress code. If you have any questions about an item or the dress requirements please contact the main office prior to purchase. We appreciate your support and look forward to partnering with you regarding the dress code of LAE
