In order to provide a safe and orderly climate conducive to education, the Acadia Parish School Board has adopted a mandated school uniform policy. Although it is impossible to anticipate all problems, distracting “fads” which disrupt the spirit, education, philosophy, or dignity of Acadia Parish School System will be unacceptable. Students who try to circumvent the dress code or fail to conform to grooming expectations will be subjected to disciplinary actions. The Principal or designee will be the final interpreter of the dress code.
DRESS AND PERSONAL GROOMING
Students are required to be clean, neatly dressed, and well-groomed with final determination of acceptability to be made by the administration. Student dress and grooming are not to adversely affect the students’ participation in classes, school programs, other school related activities or distract from the learning environment of the school. Extremes in style and fit in student dress and extremes in style of grooming will not be permitted. No student shall wear, possess, use, distribute, display or sell any clothing, jewelry, emblem, symbols, sign or other things which are evidence of affiliation with drugs, alcohol, violence or gang related activities or exhibits profane or obscene language/gestures. Beards and goatees shall be prohibited. All clothing and accessories must be worn in the manner intended by the manufacturer. Policies regarding dress and grooming stress the importance of reducing distractions that inhibit learning and are addressed as an attempt to enhance the learning environment.
