DRESS CODE Board Rule
Students are expected to come to school with proper attention having been given to personal cleanliness, grooming, and neatness of dress. Students whose personal attire or grooming distracts the attention of other students or teachers from their school work shall be required to make the necessary alterations to such attire or grooming before entering the classroom or be sent home by the principal to be properly prepared for school. Students who fail to meet the minimum acceptable standards of cleanliness and neatness as determined by the principal and as specified in this rule shall be subject to appropriate disciplinary measures.
The appearance of members of the LBA Construction & Business Management Academy family is of paramount importance to us. We believe that pride in our appearance is fundamental to good character development and success. Our goal is to prepare students for future success in the business world. Our dress code mirrors the standards that are acceptable in that world. Certain parts of the uniform code have been adopted to meet safety requirements. The following is the uniform policy that is endorsed by the school. Students are required to follow this policy and failure to do so will result in administrative action against the student.
Mandatory Student ID Policy
Students are mandated to wear a school picture ID at all times. An ID will be issued through homeroom as soon as they become available during the first few weeks of school. Students will need their ID for tardy monitoring and for uniform infractions. If student ID is lost, a financial obligation will be given and a replacement ID will be issued.
All students are required to wear straight cut, full length navy pants that are hemmed. These pants may not have cargo pockets, unusual tailoring and/or labels, may not be manufactured from jean material and must be fitted to the student correctly. Pants that are too big or too tight, frayed, torn, or distressed are not acceptable and will be deemed in violation of the uniform code.
Belts must be worn at all times; these belts must be plain, black or brown and fastened securely at waist level. Pants must be worn at waist level. Loose or low pants will not be tolerated.
Shirts must be yellow, or white polo bearing the LBA Academy logo. Shirts must be sized to allow for a 3 – 4 inch overlap to be tucked into the uniform pants. All shirts must be correctly tucked inside of pants at all times and secured in place with the belt. A maximum of one button may be left unfastened at the top of any shirt.
During cooler weather, a plain white, navy blue, or yellow long sleeve or turtleneck may be worn underneath polo shirts.
Non-School Sweaters can only be solid navy blue, white, or yellow. No Hoodies. No lettering on the sweaters.
Heavy coats may only be worn outside of the school. No outside jackets will be allowed inside the school building.

Important Note for Science Classes
Many brands of hair styling products contain highly flammable chemicals, even when they are dry. It is advised that these should not be worn in science classrooms as there is a risk of ignition from open flames. Additionally, it is recommended that students purchase a plain apron for use in these classes during their time in school to protect their clothes from damage during lab work. The school will not be held responsible for damage to students’ person or property if they do not follow the safety guidelines above and those advised in their classrooms.
Important Note for PE and Dance Classes
PE requires the use of specific uniforms that are a requirement for class. PE uniforms are available for purchase at the beginning of each semester.
