Clearwater, Florida -- Pinellas County students returning to several schools on Monday may have to rethink their attire. reports13 schools, including Lakewood High School and High Point Elementary, have decided to up the game on dress code standards this year.

The school district has always had its own dress code standards, but each school can go even further with their restrictions if they want to.

Among some of the new restrictions some schools are adding to the county's standard dress code include no rips or holes anywhere on clothing and no visible logos larger than a quarter in size. The logos ban on clothing appears to be the new trend among school clothing restrictions in an effort to "level the playing field" for students who may not be able to afford higher end attire.

While students may be frustrated with their school's dress code, educators say it's ultimately aimed at deterring social distractions and improving student's academic performance.
