Occasionally, Legacy Elementary will have a “Dress-Up Day” of some type. Examples include – Spirit Days, Book Character, Pep Rallies, Valentine Red and White Day, Red and Green Day at Christmas or on Awards Day at the end of the school year. On these days, it is important to remember the spirit of the uniform code at Legacy Elementary. Our goal is modesty in all things and to keep our focus on Christian character of the individual. In order to maintain these goals, we ask that any outfit chosen for wear on these days conform to the same high standards as the daily uniforms. Belts must be worn. Jumpers, dresses, shorts, or skorts must meet the usual minimum length requirements. This applies also to any specially required evening or off-campus functions at which students are representing Legacy Christian Academy.
The uniform and dress policy is administered by the principal or designee who reserves the right to make final determination in all matters of judgment regarding dress.
