Uniform Policy



Articles of clothing should not contain any symbols or logos not approved by the school district.


Designer clothing may not be worn, even though the colors are approved colors. Clothing that is sold in a nationally recognized uniform catalogue will be accepted as “uniform clothing”, if the clothing does not conflict with other district rules and regulations for dress. If in doubt about what clothing may be considered as designer clothing, consult with the building administrator or superintendent.


Clothing may be worn in any combination of complimentary colors.


Socks and opaque stockings must be in one of the school colors.


Outer garments that are of a different color, or colors, than the school uniform colors may not be worn for the purpose of concealing a uniform. White t-shirts are the only allowable under shirts, if the undershirt is visible.


Students in the Alternative Program will be required to wear uniforms every day of the week.


Pants with belt loops must be worn with a belt. Shirts and sweaters must be worn inside skirts/pants, etc.


Sagging pants will not be allowed. Strings may be used to prevent pants from sagging, if necessary.


Students not in uniform will be required to contact parent or guardian. If   parent or guardian is not available – SRO will escort student home to obtain proper attire. Upon returning, student will be issued a tardy for that day. If student do not return, the absence will be regarded as an unexcused absence.


Uniform days will be Monday - Friday for all schools, unless otherwise changed by the principal with the approval of the superintendent.


The Superintendent has the authority to modify clothing specifications and/or requirements, if there is no conflict with the purpose or intent of the policy.

Homework Standards

The Leland School District believes that meaningful homework assignments are necessary, and, when assigned systematically, provide additional time for learning that contributes toward improving a student's academic achievement. Homework builds on classroom work, encourages the development of self-discipline and develops responsibility, cooperation and parental relationship with the school. All administrators and teachers who are responsible for the education of Leland School District students are expected to promote these requirements in ways that are appropriate to each grade level.
