LBJ has adopted a uniform dress code for the safety and wellbeing of all our students and staff. Please follow the dress code when on campus. Clothing worn to school should not violate the rules of decency, offend or intimidate others, promote unsafe conditions, or detract from the educational process. Please assist your child to understand the uniform policy. Following rules promotes good citizenship! Current, fashionable clothing is not considered a uniform dress. Clothing or personal belongings like jewelry, backpacks, purses, etc., which advertise, promote, or support alcohol, drugs, sex, violence, tobacco, or death are unacceptable. Students failing to follow this dress code may miss valuable class time WAITING for PARENT/GUARDIAN to bring uniform clothing.
