School Uniform Dress Code Policy

Dress Code

Dress Code
Students are expected to dress and present an appearance consistent with standards of good taste and appropriate for school and school events. 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, or tobacco is inappropriate for school and should not be allowed. (Archdiocesan Policy 4303.6)
We encourage the students to always wear their uniforms in a neat and appropriate manner. We ask the parents to help by ensuring that the students come to school each day with correct, clean, and appropriately fitting uniforms and appropriate clothing for dress-out days. Any decision regarding the suitability of fads and fashions which appear will be at the discretion of the principal.
We also ask that each student come to school with clean and appropriately groomed hair. Please be sure that the student's hair never impedes his/her vision.
