Students at St. Peter’s Lutheran School are expected to dress neatly, modestly and in good taste. Student dress should reflect the fact that you and your family take education seriously. Sometimes the current fads and trends are in conflict with what is appropriate for school. If the principal and teacher agree, the student will be asked not to wear the inappropriate item again. In instances where students are inappropriately dressed, they will be sent to the principal’s office until proper clothing can be brought to school.

A Standardized Dress Code:

  1. Allows the faculty to focus on providing a Christian-centered education without the distraction of monitoring appropriate attire.
  2. Promotes a sense of unity and belonging within a student body that reflects the unity we have in Jesus Christ.  
  3. Defines and provides guidance for modest and non-distracting student appearance within the school.
  4. Promotes a positive image to the community and our congregation.
