Appropriate Dress


All LCHE participants shall dress appropriately for the specific planned activity.

  • Wear older clothes when soiling is possible like in art, PE or some field trips.
  • Wear appropriate footwear. Athletic shoes, preferably tennis shoe type with shoestrings for PE. (Can run safely without shoes falling off) No flip-flops for PE. Please make sure sole of the shoes are not loose or slick for PE.
  • Dress for the weather on field trips and outdoor activities. Consider layering clothing.
  • Loose clothing as well as tight clothing can be a hazard depending on the activity. Please evaluate and dress appropriately.

All LCHE participants shall maintain modest dress at all times, including guests, parents, teachers, students and grandparents. Generally, participants are asked to be considerate of others and not dress in a manner that is distracting to the learning environment.
We aspire to the motto: “Modesty is the desire to attract people to a loving God instead of to yourself.”

Some specific guidelines of modest dress include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Appropriate length shirts. No midriffs showing when hands are raised above the head as might occur in PE and choir.
  • Modest neck lines.
  • No undergarments showing, including straps.
  • Leggings or yoga pants must be worn with an extra-long shirt. Modest length shorts with a length of 2” above the knee or longer.
  • Modest length skirts, dresses and skorts when appropriate. No skirts in PE please! For students, skirts of any length must have leggings underneath (not hose) and length should be 2” above the knee or longer.
  • Evaluate t-shirts with slogans, saying or pictures for appropriateness.

A violation of the Dress Code may result in the participant being sent home to change clothes.

If conflict arises concerning a participant’s, the LCHE Conflict Resolution Policy will be used to deal with the conflict.
