Dress Code Policy

Lincoln Fundamental has a structured environment for maximum learning.
Parents and teachers choose Lincoln Fundamental in order to focus on learning. It is expected that all students, with their parents’ support, come to school in a clean and neat manner consistent with the school dress code and the instructional program. Students’ clothing and general appearance should not interfere with teaching or learning, or create a disruption to the orderly operation of our school. Revisions are made periodically as fashions change.

 1. Wearing school spirit wear and school colors: red, white, and blue, is encouraged.

 2. Shirts are to be tucked in at all times. Shorts, dresses, and skirts must reach middle fingertip of extended arms. Pants and shorts must be of equal length. Shorts must not exceed 4” width from the leg or be more than 2” below the knee. No cut offs or biker shorts (except under skirts or dresses).

3. Shoulder straps of clothing must be at least 1 ½ in width.

4. All clothing is to be sized properly; not too loose or too tight. Undergarments or posterior may not show. Leggings/Yoga pants may only be worn under dresses or skirts that reach the middle fingertip of extended arms and may NOT be worn solely as pants. (Pants usually have pockets and are made with a heavier material such as denim. Legging/Yoga pants usually are thin cotton stretch fabric or spandex.)

5. Appropriate shoes must enable participation in all types of play and physical education. Tennis and athletic shoes are recommended. Low heeled shoes (no more than 1 inch) and closed toe sandals with back-strap are acceptable. Socks MUST be worn.

6. Outerwear including jackets, sweaters, and sweatshirts should fit properly, NOT over sized. Hoods may only be worn outside in cold weather. Hoodies with masks over the face are not acceptable.

7. Hair must be neatly groomed, evenly blended, and must not interfere with vision. Mohawks, faux hawks, side-shaved, spikes more than 1”, hair carvings, - 6 - and distracting hairstyles are not permitted. Hair must be natural color. No hair color of any kind permitted.

8. Make-up, artificial nails, and nail polish are not permitted. Only one small earring in each ear; no dangling or hoop earrings. One bracelet per arm is permitted. Jewelry must not cause a distraction or be unsafe (such as long necklaces).

9. Hats and sunglasses are permitted on special “Spirit Days” or with a doctor’s note. Bows or hairbands must be of reasonable size (no cat ears, costume like or excessively large adornments).

The following items of clothing are considered inappropriate for school attire. We expect ALL students to follow these guidelines: Studded jewelry or apparel, clothing with negative or suggestive phrases that denote drugs, violence, or death, holes or rips in clothing, words on the back of pants, see through or revealing clothing, muscle shirts, sports jerseys, strapless or spaghetti strap garments, mini- skirts, ankle length dresses, bare midriffs, bare backs, racer backs, slits in skirts, sports cleats, flip-flops, moccasins, slippers, open-toed sandals, body piercings, hats, baseball caps, bandanas, sweatbands, visors, sunglasses.
 ***Site administrators will make the final decision. If necessary, parents will be contacted to provide proper clothing and grooming. Disciplinary action will result for repeated lack of compliance to dress code.
