Magnolia Trace Elementary’s official school uniform complies with the St. Tammany Parish School Board dress code.

We work and play hard at school, so expect your child’s clothes to get dirty. For safety reasons we ask the following:

  • Wear athletic / tennis shoes.
  • Open backed shoes, shoes with high heels, shoes with cleats, hard boots such as cowboy boots, or flip-flops are not allowed.
  • Bandanas and hats should not be worn to school.
  • Shorts are encouraged as long as they meet the length requirement of fingertip length when the child is standing upright.
  • Umbrellas are dangerous at this age! Please opt for raincoats with hoods or rain hats instead.
  • Elaborate jewelry that can be distracting in the classroom is not allowed.
  • Please leave items such hats, combs, brushes, watches, sunglasses and purses at home to minimize classroom distractions.
  • Please label your children’s clothing and items with their first and last names.
