Dress Code Guidelines
LTMS Dress Code
LTMS expects that all students will dress in a way that is appropriate for the school day or for any school sponsored event. Student dress choices should respect our school’s intent to sustain a community that is inclusive of a diverse range of identities. The primary responsibility for a student’s attire resides with the student and their parent(s) or guardian(s). LTMS is responsible for seeing that student attire does not interfere with the health or safety of any student, that student attire does not contribute to a hostile or intimidating atmosphere for any student, and that dress code enforcement does not reinforce or increase marginalization or oppression of any group based on race, sex, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, cultural observance, household income, or body type/size. Any restrictions to the way a student dresses must be necessary to support the overall educational goals of the school and must be explained within this dress code.
All items listed in the "must wear" and "may wear" categories below must meet these basic principles.
Students MUST Wear:
Courses or specific class activities that include attire as part of the curriculum may include assignment-specific dress, but should not focus on covering students' bodies or promoting culturally-specific attire. Activity specific shoe requirements are permitted (Examples include but are not limited to physical education and agriculture classes).
