I want to know how other parents feel about the dress code LPISD has...I don't know about other moms, my kids hate going to school everyday because they have to wear a collar and TUCK in their shirts.
It has gotten to the point where the school is more concerned with "tuck in your shirt" than what the kids are actually learning....

I agree-especially when this look isn't flattering to all kids. Do they have to wear a belt, too?

I never needed much encouragement to skip school... but being held to such a restrictive dress code would have been discouragement enough.

Of course... when I skipped school... I'd always end up in a library, a computer store, the Zoo or a museum.

I enjoyed educating myself... much more than I did being educated.

Letting a young mind wander and explore the world on their own(with a little guidance)is the best education you can get.

It's exciting when you can latch on to a train of thought... and ride it to it's furthest reaches... learning about the world around you... without having a conductor telling you where to get off and switch trains.

BIG DEAL! They will have some kind of dress code in whatever profession they choose in life. School is to prepare them for the future. And trust me, schools are MUCH more concerned with the many requirements they have to teach your kids to make them successful in academics then the dress code.

You are wrong, no dress code in high school. The dress code started because of LPE. Go figure!! It was also self esteem issue because some kids had nice clothes and some didn't. That was part of it. It was hiemlicker lady.
I know this is part of it,can't remember the full details.

Let's just say that there IS a dress code in high school but it is not enforced-haha

In my class I enforce the no crack rule. That includes pants, blouses or otherwise. I am soooo glad the saggy pants are pretty much out of style except for a few stubborn kids.

The dress code that LPISD has for the elementray through 6th grade kids is asinine. The whole concept of this inproving self esteem is awful. I was a pudgy kid myself and if you had told me I had to tuck in my shirt, it would have made my self esteem much lower (thankfully I grew out of it). Then you see the poor kids wearing third generation hand me downs with holes and stains because the parents can not afford another uniform while they could buy T-shirts for the kids for a couple bucks a piece.

To top it off, the teachers give out free dress passes as encouragement to the kids who perform well on tests etc. as a reward (no tuck in, no collar etc) which they have to wear around their necks for the duration of the pass. If you are the kid who does not do well on the test, I look at that as a sort of put down that you were not smart enough to get the free dress pass. Once again, hurting self esteem. While some kids might look at it as they need to try harder; a lot of others certainly would not.

For us, the dress code is a living hell for a couple reasons with our kids. The clothes that conform are cheap and do not last, and try allowing you daughter to express any traits of feminimity other than wearing a pink golf shirt all the way through the sixth grade.

The good news is when she hits seventh grade she can immediately transition to her megadeath T-shirts and holy jeans while smoking a ciggy on the way to school, yeah this dress code really works....

Forcing children to conform is not healthy anyway.

Individuality is the key.

Let them express themselves more freely... and you will open up more minds.

Common sense should prevail over what children wear to school... not some strict dress code.

Sounds like to me that you have a guilty conscious...Actually, I feel safer with the cops patrolling the area. The funny thing is if there were not any cops, people would be fussing because there was not. If you have too many, you fuss because there are cops...
Make a decision, do you want to have cops or not? If you are legal, not breaking any laws, taking care of your business, then what is the problem? Do you have insurance just in case you have an accident? Do you have vehicle registration and inspection? Do you take care of your vehicle where it is safe to drive so you do not break down and cause possible accidents on road? Do you pay attention to what you are doing as opposed to others and their business?
These are the questions you need to be asking yourself before you start getting nutty and scared over an officer. BTW, I am not an officer, just a concerned citizen wanting to understand people that I live around.
Just want to make sure that ALL understand, this is my first time on here because I never heard of this site until today, ever, and I was lured on here because people are reading comments about someoneís name that starts with a (TH) which is different than just (T); because of the ridiculous comments made about La Porte I.S.D. dress code, L.P.P.D., and other sections on this site.
People that are speaking their mind I have no problems with... If you are going to live in America and have the freedom to speak your mind because of FREEDOM OF SPEECH; PLEASE DO SO WITH PROPER GRAMMAR AND SENTENCE STRUCTURE. You are making yourself look pretty bad. Make sure you sound like you have some sense.
The problem I have is that the people that are reading these comments and connect it to someone that has NO CONNECTION, or has ever posted anything on website are freaking out over something that someone that does not, obviously, have an education past the 6th grade (being nice) and connection it to someone that has more education than most, AND has common sense to boot. This is not the persons name that starts with a (T) writing comment, this is the husband (GAB) of the person that is making sure there is no confusion. Make sure you check the spelling.
As so far as dress codes are concerned, where are the standards? That's right, you had a hard childhood, therefore, you have an excuse to spoil your children and make others have to deal with the problems you create because you do not want to. Your hard childhood started because you had to wear a belt and dress nice, get fed from your parents that wanted you to be someone. Right? And when things do not go your way, you blame someone else because you cannot figure out, for yourself how to fix it. Grow up, you sound like a child still crying over yourself, and maybe that is why you are where you are at today.
Never blame your child; it is always someone else. Children never lie to you and are always perfect. Wrong...Wake up!!! You were a kid once; did you want to get into trouble? Be parents, set some standards, grow some; and give others a chance to truly help your kids have a chance, and give them a chance by setting the standard yourself. Just because you may have fallen short of your goals, does not mean that they have to do the exact same thing as you did.
That is the problem with America today, point fingers, act too busy and stay on computer writing things that do not mean anything but for yourself while you are on welfare making more money than those having to work and pay taxes to support you and your whole family. I can do that today, except collect welfare because I have standards, also.
Personally, I would rather be constructive and make something in real life happen as opposed to wasting my time right now typing a response to others.
P.S., I am not afraid to speak my mind, just like everyone else on here. If the truth hurts you, then change your life and decisions for the better, donít blame me.
