Middle School Dress Code for the 2024-2025 School Year

The policy of the Lee County Board of Education is that personal appearance is an essential element in the teaching and learning processes. Therefore, it is expected that students dress in such a manner that will ensure their health and safety  while at school. Furthermore, the dress and personal appearance may not be disruptive or interfere with the legitimate interest and welfare of the students.
