Lee County High School Dress Code

DRESS CODE - LCHS

Cleanliness of persons and appropriate apparel is expected as a matter of health and aesthetics. The dress of students must be in good taste, appropriate for school activities, in accordance with the school rules, and not be disruptive to the learning environment. LCHS’S dress code is de- signed to reduce the likelihood of distraction or disruption and to maintain an academic focus in the classroom and on campus. Lee County High School does not permit revealing clothing. Administrators have the final authority in all judgments related to dress and hygiene.

Dress code regulations:

1. Halter-tops, tube tops, crop tops, midriffs, tank tops, see-through and backless shirts, spaghetti strap tops, and shirts with sleeves cut out are not permitted. All clothing should be non-revealing in the chest area and midriff area whether standing or sitting.

2. Clothing with holes in inappropriate areas or areas that prevent the garment from meeting guidelines for shorts and skirts is prohibited.

3. Athletic wear may be worn provided that it meets the requirements listed throughout other dress code regulations.
