    Reason for a Dress Code
    There are two fundamental reasons for a school dress code: 1) to ensure the health and safety of everyone on campus; and 2) to avoid any unacceptable disruptions to the learning environment. A secondary reason for a dress code is to encourage students to have appropriate dress habits.

    Also, Lamar will not tolerate gang-related behavior and/or the wearing of gang-identified articles of clothing and/or other gang symbols. Any articles of clothing, symbols, or emblems thought to signify gang membership will be banned.

    The Lamar faculty and administration will enforce the Lamar dress code in a uniform manner. They also will determine the appropriateness of attire for school occasions and activities. All students have the responsibility to wear clothing that contributes both to their own health and safety as well as that of others. The student dress code applies to students on campus, whether during the school day or after hours, including those serving detention or Saturday School.
    Dress Code Violations
    Please note: Violations of the Lamar dress code will result in disciplinary action. Depending on the number of dress code offenses and the gravity of the offense, discipline can range from detention to suspension. IF YOU ARE NOT IN UNIFORM YOU WILL BE SENT HOME.

    As a general rule, the Lamar dress code will not be revised more frequently than once a year. Also, courts at both the state and federal levels have recognized the rights of school officials to regulate standards of student dress and grooming.
