Students Can Now Wear Shorts Through End of October

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

The Jefferson Parish School Board approved Superintendent Dr. Cade Brumley’s recommendation to alter the uniform policy during their October meeting. Middle and high school students (grades 6-12) can wear knee-length shorts until October 31. 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.

The board also approved a policy change to allow students to wear solid color tights under their uniform skirts.
