Dress Code

DRESS:  Mandeville Middle School parents followed St. Tammany Parish School Board policy on voting to require Mandeville Middle School students to wear uniforms.  The uniform was proposed by the school uniform committee and adopted by parent vote.  This uniform follows all guidelines of the St. Tammany Parish School Board Dress Code.

Students are not permitted to wear any uniform tops or bottoms that fit tightly.  All uniform tops and bottoms must be traditional fit, not skinny fit nor excessively loose/baggy.  We   recognize that our students are growing children, and we ask our parents to make any needed uniform purchases with that in mind.  Uniform items meeting the guidelines outlined in the MMS Handbook may be purchased anywhere.            

Bottoms:  Girls may choose from pants/shorts/skorts/skirts.  Leggings or jeggings worn as pants are not part of the adopted MMS uniform and should not be worn except under a skirt, skort or shorts during cold weather.  Boys may choose from pants/shorts.  Shorts, skorts, and skirts must adhere to fingertip length as stated in the STPSB student dress code.  The color is khaki only (no stripes, designs, etc.). 

Students are permitted during cold weather to wear leggings BENEATH shorts or skirts.  Leggings must be SOLID white, black, navy or gray only. This includes the soccer type leggings worn by boys.
Shoes:   Shoes should follow the STPSB Dress Code Guidelines. We encourage
students to wear tennis shoes on PE days.


Shirts - MMS logo or plain polo type knit, collared shirt – white or navy long 
 or short sleeves – no logos or emblems other than MMS.

Sweatshirts - MMS logos or plain sweatshirts – white, black, navy or gray – no logos or emblems other than MMS

Undershirts – white, black, navy or gray – plain – no visible logos or emblems other than MMS.
Undershirts are to be tucked in at the waist at all times and should not be visible

sleeves may extend and be visible beyond the polo length sleeve.

Other school shirts - Student of the Month, band, club, spirit, etc., shirts may be worn on Fridays.

Outer wear:  MMS logo or plain jackets or sweaters – white, black, navy or gray – may 
be worn indoors.  All other non-MMS dress code heavy jackets, coats, hoodies, or
