Abita Springs Elementary is a mandatory uniform school. A violation of student dress regulations is a Group 2 offense in the Code of Conduct and may result in disciplinary action that includes suspension. Policies regarding dress and grooming stress the importance of reducing distractions that inhibit learning and enhancing a safe learning environment. Uniforms must be worn each day except for days designated by administration. Please put your child’s name on all clothing.

The full dress code policy is found in the St. Tammany Parish School Board
Although this is not a full list of policies, below are a few gender specific policies:

  • Un-natural hair coloring including frosting on tips is not allowed for boys or girls.
  • An acceptable, well-groomed haircut will be required of all male students. Styles never should be such that they represent a collective or individual protest. The length of hair may not fall below the base of a collar on a shirt. Afros or teased styles may not exceed three (3) inches in height. Hair arranged in a manner detrimental to the performance of normal educational activities will be prohibited. Hair also must be clean and not unusually colored. Sculptured hair styles that include pictures, symbols, letters, numbers, etc., will not be permitted.
  • Girls must wear their hair in a conventional style. The minimum length of dresses, culottes, skirts, and shorts must be at the fingertip or below when standing straight with arms extended down the sides or not more than 5" above the knee.
