  • shorts allowed K-12 in TPSS

    On Monday, Tangipahoa Parish School Superintendent Mark Kolwe announced that effective immediately, students in all grades (Pre-K-12) will be allowed to wear shorts to school.

    “Due in part to the recent concerns from students and parents regarding the very hot temperatures we have been experiencing, TPSS School Board Members and I decided to revisit our Student Dress Code Policy regarding shorts.  Currently, Board policy allows students in grades Pre-K-6 to wear khaki or navy, twill, loose-fitting walking shorts, if the bottom of the garment is knee-length.  We feel that there is no reason to prohibit students in grades 7-12 from wearing shorts following those same guidelines," Kolwe said.

    This change in the student dress code is effective immediately, according to Superintendent Kolwe.  Classes will begin on Thursday, August 6, 2015.
