Show your SPIRIT! Wear your Cardinal RED!
Dr. Knox is making it a “Spirit Spring,” coming in the Spring Semester 2017.
Make sure to follow the Spirit Day apparel Policy 10.14 and Procedure 10.14 as stated below.
POLICY 10.14 DRESS CODE FOR EMPLOYEES
Labette Community College non-instructional employees are expected to dress in a manner to promote a positive professional image for their respective job assignment to students, visitors, and coworkers. In line with this, the College requires that employees dress appropriately in clothing which:
- is suitable for their job responsibilities and work environment;
- meets the requirements established for safety reasons; and
- complies with the College’s dress code requirements
- The supervisor is responsible for communicating the proper guidelines to employees and responsible for monitoring and ensuring compliance in their areas.
PROCEDURE 10.14 DRESS CODE FOR EMPLOYEES
The College’s year-round dress code is business casual Monday through Thursday. Each Friday is College-wide casual dress day. Additionally, Spirit Days are designated during each semester and employees are encouraged to wear LCC attire on these days. Employees are allowed to wear jeans and t-shirts on Spirit Days and Fridays but are prohibited from wearing them the rest of the week.
The supervisor will inform an employee when their personal appearance does not meet the College’s guidelines and the employee may be sent home to change. Continuing problems will result in an incident form or Performance Improvement Plan, Policy/Procedure 2.16.
If a holiday or College closing occurs on a Friday, the last business day during that week will be designated as a casual dress day. Spirit days are approved through the President’s office and posted on the LCC Website Home Page. The President may also designate specific times for casual dress, and will be announced through e-mail.
The President reserves the right to cancel a casual dress day or Spirit Day based on business necessity.
Exceptions & Additional Information
Clothing prohibited: Jeans and t-shirts other than stated above, sweatpants, shorts, and athletic apparel unless prior approval is received from the supervisor.
Department specific job duties may allow the employees of that department to dress accordingly, for example, Information Technology, Cardinal Café, Maintenance, Custodians, and Coaches. The supervisor will monitor usage.
Occasionally the President may advertise an additional casual dress or Spirit day for employees who participate in certain activities, such as in-service.
