Preschool students are not required to wear uniforms. All K-8 students must wear uniforms for school unless permission is given for "free dress" or a special dress-up day.
In general, students may wear any combination of the uniform apparel described below. On some days (e.g., when attending school mass or other special events), K-8 students are required to wear “formal uniform.”
For girls, formal uniform is a white polo shirt and plaid jumper (K-3) or plaid skirt (4-8). A plaid skort is not allowed as part of formal uniform.
For boys, formal uniform is a white polo shirt and navy pants. All students must wear either a school logo sweatshirt or cardigan.
Students may wear:
Girls may wear one pair of stud earrings; no hoops or dangles. No other body piercings are allowed. No makeup, artificial nails or nail polish allowed. Students may not have visible tattoos or wear hologram contact lenses.
Teachers conduct daily checks and will issue a "non-compliance slip" to each student violating the Uniform Policy and/or Dress Code. The slip will explain the issue(s) to be corrected.
Students wearing make-up or nail polish will be asked to immediately remove said items. Other corrections must be made by the following school day. If new items must be purchased, corrections must be promptly made (up to 3 days from receipt of slip).
The first slip is considered a "fix-it" slip, or warning. The second slip will require the student to call home for proper attire to be immediately brought to school. Students will stay in the School Office until the items arrive and will be responsible for all class work missed while waiting. A third slip requires the same action as the second, and the student will also be prohibited from participating in the next school-wide Free Dress day. Students who receive a fourth slip in one school year will be assigned 30 minutes of after-school detention, a negative comment on their report cord and ineligibility for honors at the end of the quarter.
Ongoing disregard of the Uniform Policy and/or Dress Code will result in increasingly severe disciplinary action, including the student's loss of extra-curricular activities and suspension.
