Dress Code

Student Dress Code

Anacoco Elementary School will have a dress code change to a uniform-optional status. This means that students can wear clothing that conforms to the Vernon Parish Dress code or uniforms, if they wish. All campuses that are uniform-optional must follow the Vernon Parish Dress Code or wear uniforms.

A dress code violation will result in a conduct mark.

In extreme cases, parents will be called to bring proper attire. Students not following dress code will be sent to the office until proper clothing is brought from home.
