The purpose of this Dress Code Policy is to promote school unity and instill a safe learning environment of equality, discipline and self-respect. It is the responsibility of all parents and students at Leadership Learning Academy to read, understand and comply with the terms of this Policy.
All staff and volunteers are required to dress professionally and conservatively as not to expose any inappropriate skin on the body.
This Policy is intended to create a framework to meet the purpose described above. As styles change, or if questions arise, the school administrator, as the Board of Directors’ designee, has the authority to determine if a student’s attire or appearance conforms to the provisions contained in this Policy.
Students are permitted to wear jeans (shorts, capris, skirts, long jeans) and uniform tops on Fridays only (no holes or rips in clothing, even if put there by the manufacturer). All other dress code policies apply.
Dollar Dress Down Day: In exchange for the opportunity to “dress down” (wear non-dress code attire), students donate $1 directly to the school. This is a simple, fun way for LLA families to support our school.
Dress Down Fundraiser Days will occur once each month; usually on the last Friday. Students are permitted to dress in casual clothing, provided they follow the general clothing provisions of the Dress Code Policy as outlined in the LLA School Handbook.
Please be sure to send $1.00 with your child on designated Fridays (please do not send money prior) in an envelope that states your child’s name and teacher’s name if you choose to dress down. They will give this money to their teacher.
Dress Down Awards: Students can earn dress-down days by earning Dojo Points. When students have earned this privilege the classroom teacher will either reach out to parents or give the student a coupon for the privilege.
These provisions include but are not limited to:
On Dress Down Days, clothing should be neat, well-kept, and practical for school.
