School Dress Code Policy 2022/2023 Please Read
Posted 7/25/22

Families and Friends please review our dress code policy for the 22/23 school year. 

La Mesa is a uniform school. Having our students wear uniforms is also for safety. It helps all staff to identify our students while on field trips or in the event of an emergency. Thank you for your help. 

 

DRESS CODE - UNIFORMS 

All students are to wear proper attire to school to foster the best environment for learning. La Mesa requires that all students wear uniforms to school each day. Under a limited basis, the school will attempt to help families obtain uniforms. Please contact the family resource center at 505-262-1581. 

Uniforms may be found at Target, JC Penny, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and thrift stores.
