Dress Code

A dress code fosters a sense of pride, self-respect, and a better atmosphere for learning.  Parents can be very instrumental in helping children look their best and in being considerate of how their appearance affects others.

The standardized policy for grades Transitional Kindergarten through 8th grade has been designed to help parents and students maintain a neat appearance school-wide.  Students in ECE-2, ECE-3, and ECE-4 should wear age-appropriate clothing; NO sandals or clogs/crocs for ECE students.

Uniform clothing may be purchased either from The Uniform Source, Parker School Uniforms (formerly Buckhead Uniforms), Lands’ End Uniforms or through P.T.L. (used uniform closet).  Red, white, and black turtlenecks, and sweatpants may be purchased anywhere, as long as they are the correct color and there are no other markings or decorations on them. 

General Guidelines

  • F.L.S. plaid is color #70 (red and black).
  • All clothing must be size-appropriate.
  • Clothing should be neat, clean, and in good repair.

Cold Weather Dress
Faith Lutheran (Logo) jackets, sweaters, fleece or sweatshirts may be worn at anytime in the classroom or school buildings (this includes Faith athletic jackets and sweatshirts).  Sweatshirts and/or “Hoodies” are not to be worn in chapel.  While we recognize that the weather may call for additional outerwear to be worn to school, students may only wear Faith Lutheran jackets, sweaters, fleece or sweatshirts IN the classroom and school building.

P.E. Days
Students in grades T.K. – 2nd should check with their classroom teacher to determine the days on which it is acceptable to wear P.E. uniforms.  When regular uniform clothing is worn, appropriate P.E. shoes should be brought for P.E. class.  

Students in grades 3 - 4 should wear uniforms every day.  Appropriate shoes should be brought for P.E. class.  Changing into P.E. clothes is optional.

Students in grades 5 – 8 should wear uniforms every day and change for P.E.  If P.E. falls after lunch, students may remain in P.E. clothes for the remainder of the day.  P.E. clothes consist of the following:

  • Ash t-shirts with logo
  • Black gym shorts with logo
  • Red, black, or white sweatshirts with logo
  • Red or black sweatpants (no spandex)

N.U.T. (no uniform today) Guidelines
If a student earns a N.U.T. day the last Friday of the month, the following guidelines will be in place:
  •  All clothing will be size appropriate.
  • Clothing should be neat, clean, and in good repair.
  • Underwear may not show at any time.
  • Pants/shorts must be worn ABOVE the hip line.
  • Caps/hats are NOT allowed in the school buildings. A student's midriff should not be exposed when he/she is walking, raising his/her hand, bending over, or engaging in any other activity.
  •  No backless or toeless sandals should be worn.
  • Sleeveless shirts may be worn, but tank tops may not. Clothing with inappropriate designs or expressions may not be worn.
Students, who, in the opinion of the school staff and/or administration, have violated the N.U.T. day guidelines, will not participate in the next N.U.T. day. If clothing is deemed inappropriate by the school administration, parents will be asked to provide the student with N.U.T. day-compliant clothing. Failing that, students may be given a school or P.E. uniform to wear. Please note that P.E. clothes are worn on N.U.T. days during P.E. class.

Spirit Days
Every Friday that is not a N.U.T. day will be considered a Spirit Day. At this time students may wear any Faith Lutheran shirt (regular uniform shirts, spirit shirts, YES youth group shirts, Middle School Gathering shirts, sports booster items, P.E. shirts, etc.). The students must wear uniform shorts, skirts, skorts, or pants. The shirts must be appropriate size and condition. They must be tucked in throughout the day.
