All JPPSS Students Can Wear Shorts Until October 5

All students in the Jefferson Parish Public School System can wear shorts to school through the beginning of October.

Middle and high school students can wear knee-length shorts from the first day of school on Thursday, August 9 until October 5. Elementary school students are already allowed to wear shorts under the normal school board dress code.

Shorts must match the color of the school’s pants, be worn at the appropriate length, and may not be excessively tight or baggy. Students may not wear bike shorts.
