DRESS CODE

Hair Guidelines

All students’ hair must be kept clean and well-groomed for school. Acceptable hair color should be natural human hair color (red, black, brown, gray and blonde). Hairstyles should not distract students from learning. Hairstyles should not obstruct any student’s vision. Distractions to the learning environment will be handled on a case-by-case basis by the school administration.

Uniforms help fulfill Lincoln Academy’s mission and philosophy, including the cultivation and maintenance of a learning environment of discipline and respect, and to provide an added level of security for the students’ protection. Uniforms improve the classroom learning environment by: 

      • Helping students concentrate on their schoolwork by setting a tone for serious study. 
      • Removing distractions created by socioeconomic differences and modern fashion. 
      • Instilling students with discipline. 

Uniforms build citizenship and a sense of community in our children by: 

      • Building self-esteem, self respect and school spirit among students by creating the distinction of being part of a group.
      • Maintaining a good school image in the community by a neat appearance.
      • Providing a visible and public symbol of commitment to school improvement and reform;

Uniforms create a safe learning environment by helping school officials recognize intruders who come to the school.

Due to changing style and fashion trends, Lincoln Academy reserves the right to make revisions to the dress code system and standards at any given time. Lincoln Academy will always do everything possible to make sure families are aware of any changes made to the dress code system.
