Uniform Policy

General Information 

We are partnering with Merry Mart in Santa Clara for our Chapel and regular uniforms; PE uniforms may be ordered online through Spirit Hero.  Basic uniform pieces include polo shirts (red, navy, or white) and navy or khaki bottoms (pants, shorts, skirts, or skorts); these pieces may be worn throughout the week, except on Tuesdays and PE days.  Chapel uniform is mandatory on Tuesdays, which includes white or light blue blouse/button-down shirt and the required bottoms (navy/khaki pants or shorts for boys, and school plaid jumper, skirts, or skorts for girls).  PE uniforms are required for PE days, which are navy for Elementary and Middle School students, and white shirts with black shorts/pants for High School students.

We recommend students wear LACS outerwear; however, solid navy, red, or white jackets are fine as well.  Outerwear should be labeled with the student’s name.

Solid navy hats are allowed outside; hats are not permitted in the classrooms.

The dress code policy and a uniform list is available in the Parent/Student Handbook.

The first week of school has been designated as uniform policy emphasis days for the students.  Each class will devote a small amount of time to discuss and clarify the policy and set the tone for the year in this particularly visible area of school spirit.

Uniform Policy Compliance

Homeroom staff and faculty will be responsible to note uniform inconsistencies.  All inconsistencies will be considered “equal”; wearing a piece of clothing that is not the approved style is of equal concern as wearing clothing that is not the correct color.  All uniform non-compliance infractions will be handled by the homeroom teacher and/or office staff.

Attire for special days, such as spirit days, field trips, and events, will be sent to parents with a written notice.

Free Dress Days for Elementary students are the first Friday of each month.  Students may wear appropriate clothing other than LACS uniforms.  Sandals, beach-type clothing, bare midriffs, clothing with inappropriate logos, wording, or advertisements, overly baggy/sagging pants, or oversized tops are not acceptable.

House Color Days are the last Friday of each month.  Students may come to school with their House color on top and uniform bottoms; middle/high school students will follow the LACS dress code as usual.
