Student Uniform Dress Code


Updated for the 2023-24 School Year: It is the belief of Trinity Lutheran School that appearance and attire does affect a person's attitude and behavior. All clothing should be modest and in good taste ‚Äď to the glory of God. Our dress regulations and appearance requirements are set out by the following guidelines to which all students are expected to adhere. Clothing will be clean and neat at all times, with no holes, or holes repaired neatly.

The dress code will be enforced by the following means: Teachers or staff will note the improper attire or grooming. If appropriate-sized clothing can be found on the free uniform racks, the student will be required to change their clothes. If not, the parents/guardians will be notified by phone and will be expected to supply the proper clothing for their child. The student may also receive a Pink Slip, which requires acknowledgment and signature of parent/guardian. Trinity staff and the Board of Education reserve the right to revise or update this code as needed.
