Sequoia Lehi Uniform and Dress Code Policy
Updated June 2017 (Download the Policy)
Sequoia Lehi students are expected to dress to reflect pride in themselves and their school. The dress code is established to help ensure an atmosphere conducive to study. Modified uniforms help put a student’s focus where it belongs. Your child’s true personality is most fully nurtured and refined when their school environment puts the focus on who they are, not on what they wear.
IT IS BOTH THE PARENTS’ AND THE CHILD’S RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE COMPLIANCE WITH THE DRESS CODE.
- Any color collared shirt. Plain, striped or embroidered shirts are allowed.
- Shirts are to be normal fitting, size appropriate.
- School appropriate shorts, jeans, long slacks (ankle length), clean and in good repair.
- Slacks or shorts with holes are not acceptable.
- Extreme haircuts are not permitted. This includes color, length and style. Hair must be out of the student’s eyes.
DRESS CODE SPECIFICS
- Clothing must be neat, clean and in good repair.
- Clothing that is cut off, tattered, torn or has holes must be repaired before being worn to school.
- Pants should be worn around the waist.
- Extremely baggy/saggy style shorts or pants showing underclothing, are not acceptable.
- The length of the pants should not hinder walking or running.
- Leggings are not acceptable as pants and can only be worn under skirts and shorts.

Exceptions in hair coloring may be made for plays, parties or other school events with safety and modesty being a priority.
