STUDENT APPEARANCE – DRESS CODE
La Salle Academy views the dress code as an important aspect of our program. The nature of such a code is that it develops a sense of personal pride and responsibility. It reinforces the attitude that school is a serious place in which to work and learn. The dress code was also established to promote appropriate grooming and hygiene, prevent disruption to the educational process, learning environment, activity or performance and avoid safety hazards. Students shall be clean and appropriately dressed for a high school environment. Moreover, as a preparation for professional life, La Salle Academy feels that it is important for students to become accustomed to certain standards of dress.
