The purpose of the dress code is to promote neatness, discipline, a sense of Catholic school identity, and to provide an atmosphere of learning that is free from emphasis on clothing. The Student Dress Code is to be followed on the first day of school.
The enforcement of the dress code is a joint responsibility of students, parents, teachers and administration. Parents must see that children leave the house properly attired and teachers and administrators must see that students follow the dress code. The handbook cannot make provisions for the continual changing of fads. Therefore, the school administration reserves the right to determine what meets these guidelines when there is a question of acceptability or appropriateness.
Uniforms MUST be purchased through an on-line school uniform company or they may be purchased from the uniform sections in stores such stores as JC Penney, Old Navy, etc. Be mindful of the approved dress code as stated below before purchasing. Not all uniform sections follow our school dress code. If you don’t think it meets these guidelines, it probably doesn’t! You may ask the school office if you are in doubt.
