Dress Code

Lincoln Fundamental Dress Code

Lincoln Fundamental Elementary School has a structured environment for maximum learning. 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. We expect ALL students to follow these guidelines:

  1. Wearing school spirit wear and school colors:  red, white, and blue, is encouraged.
  2. Shirts are to be tucked in at all times.
  3. Shorts, dresses, and skirts must reach the middle fingertip of extended arms. Pants and shorts must have an even sewn hem. Biker shorts and leggings may only be worn under skirts or dresses. 
  4. Holes or rips in clothing that show skin through are not permitted.
  5. Shoulder straps of clothing must be at least 1½" in width.
  6. All clothing is to be sized properly. Undergarments or posterior may not show. Clothing that is distracting or disruptive is not permitted.
  7. Appropriate shoes must enable participation in all types of play and physical education. Tennis or 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.
  8. Outerwear including jackets, sweaters, and sweatshirts should fit properly and NOT be oversized. Hoods may only be worn outside in cold weather. Hoodies with masks over the face are not acceptable.
  9. Hair must be neatly groomed, evenly blended, and must not interfere with vision.  Distracting hairstyles are not permitted.  Hair must be its natural color.  
  10. Make-up, artificial nails, and nail polish are not permitted.
  11. Only one small earring in each ear;  no dangling or hoop earrings are allowed. Jewelry must not cause a distraction in class or be unsafe on the playground.
  12. Hats and sunglasses are permitted on special 'Spirit Days' or with a doctor’s note. Bows, hairbands, or hair clips must be of reasonable size (no cat ears, costume-like or excessively large adornments).

The following items of clothing are not allowed and are inappropriate for school attire.

Studded jewelry or apparel, clothing with negative or suggestive phrases that denote drugs, violence, or death, 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, and sunglasses are not permitted.
