Dress Code/Uniform

The purpose of the Dress Code is to encourage students to focus on the learning process without the distractions of unsuitable dress and grooming. Students shall maintain a clean, orderly appearance at all times. The responsibility for the personal appearance of the student rests with the parent/guardian and the student. Personal appearance shall not disrupt the educational process. A student who is dressed appropriately is demonstrating a respect for self and others, as well as contributing to a safe and orderly learning environment.

The School District of Lee County (“District”) is committed to protecting students during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Effective immediately, all students attending Lee County Schools must wear appropriate face coverings that cover the mouth, nose, and chin when on school board property, at a school board activity, or riding a bus or other approved transportation. It is requested that all students provide their own face masks.
  • The wearing of a face covering is a health issue. Student compliance with wearing a face covering will be dealt with as a health issue, not as a discipline issue.
  • Students will be provided with opportunities for breaks where they can remove their face covering while maintaining appropriate social distancing under adult supervision.
  • Exceptions to the face covering requirement:
  • Face coverings should adhere to the following requirements:
This guidance shall be immediately implemented and will remain in effect until further notice.
