QUEEN OF ALL SAINTS
2019-2020 UNIFORM POLICY

DRESS AND GROOMING (Archdiocese of St. Louis)

Students are expected to dress and present an appearance consistent with standards of good taste and appropriate for school and school events. The purpose of the school uniform is to enhance the academic atmosphere, to give students a feeling of equality, to provide a visible sense of school unity and identity, the allow the viewer to perceive the individuality of the student undistracted by clothing and to reduce clothing costs. All students must be in uniform before entering the school building for the school day. All articles of the uniform should be neat, clean, and fit appropriately (i.e. shirts long enough to stay tucked in when sitting and/or reaching, modest in appearance, etc.). If a student needs to wear an out-of-uniform item on a particular day, s/he must have the consent of the administration for being out-of-uniform. A copy of the Queen of All Saints dress code follows. Any dress or wearing of insignia which conveys the image of gang membership, supports the beliefs of hate groups, makes sexual innuendos, or promotes drugs, alcohol, vaping, or tobacco is inappropriate for school and should not be allowed. The administration reserves the right to determine whether or not a student’s appearance is appropriate. Repeated uniform violations will result in privilege to participate in out-of-uniform days being denied.

The wearing of the school uniform demonstrates:

  1. respect - for the learning community and the expectations it has for its students.
  2. credibility - the reliability of the student as a member of a learning environment that promotes character and excellence
  3. acceptance - as a member of a group of individuals dedicated to Christian values in an academic environment
  4. authority - the right to represent the Christian values of the QAS learning community.

Out-of-Uniform Days

Occasionally, the students will have a day when uniforms do not have to be worn. On these days, there are guidelines the students must follow:

  • All out-of-uniform clothing must be modest in appearance and appropriate for our Catholic school setting (excessively tight and/or form fitting clothing is not appropriate, leggings may not be worn as pants).
  • Shorts must meet the length requirement outlined for uniform shorts and skirts (length must be longer than the tip of the longest finger when standing relaxed with arms at sides) , shoulders must be covered (shirts must have sleeves).
  • No pajama bottoms or boxers and no inappropriate lettering or logo.
  • Shirt must be long enough to come over the waistband of pants.
  • No temporary color and/or dye on the hair.

The responsibility of being appropriately dressed according to the Dress Code Policy belongs to both the student and parent(s). With the primary focus being on providing and maintaining an environment conducive to learning at all times, consequences for not complying with the Dress Code are as follows:

  1. Student will be sent to the office to call home for proper clothing and wait for it to be brought to school.
  2. Student may lose the privilege of any and/or all future out-of-uniform days.

Please note: PE uniform t-shirts and shorts and uniform sweatshirts are made to order, therefore, are not as readily available as other uniform items. Catholic Supply has a limited supply of these in stock.
