An Important Fashion Message: The Sandals Timeline: When to Ditch Those Open Toes
Here at Lee High School, we believe in keeping our students up to date with all the important information they will need to improve their lives, not only educationally and athletically, but in the fashion world, as well. As many of you former students and present Lee High Students know, Open Toe Season is not only a date we all can expose our toes to the world, but it is also a reason to have a parade. But do you know when Open Toe Season actually ends? Well, fear not fashion faux pas-ers...that's French for Ewww! What are you wearing? Today, we will give you a little lesson on when you should hide those phalanges of the foot.
August Fall, shmall. The sun is out and we’re in no rush to speed up the end of the summer. Flaunt that pedicure in all its polished glory. It’s still sandal season, after all.
September Pre-fall. It’s a season now (well, in the fashion world, at least). And the first day of school – for you, or your little ones – is always full of outfit planning. So, until the last day of summer hits on September 21, you’re free to rock gladiators and wedge sandals as you please. Just leave the flip-flops for dorm showers and pool visits.
October It’s officially autumn – which means it’s time to pack up your jewel-clad thong sandals and gladiators and break out those lug-sole boots. Open-toed wedges can stay around, though. Just pair them with dainty ankle socks. Come Halloween, though, toes should be covered. No excuses.
So remember...don't be a FASHION FAUX PAS. Know when Open Toe Season begins and ends.

Indistar® is a web-based system implemented by a state education agency, district, or charter school organization for use with district and/or school improvement teams to inform, coach, sustain, track, and report improvement ac-tivities.
Similar to a global positioning system (GPS), Indistar® tells you where you are and helps you get to where you want to be — every child learning and every school improving. Indistar® is stocked with indicators of evidence-based practices at the district, school, and classroom levels to improve student learning. But Indistar® is also customizable, so that the client (SEA, LEA, or charter organization) can populate or enhance the system with its own indicators of effective practice. The system also accommodates rubrics for assessment of the indicators.
Parents may log onto Indistar to view the School Improvement of Lee High School. The following is a list of the reports that Parents may view:
