permitted. The only pins permitted on the uniform are school club, rep pins, and pins
approved by the principal.

DRESS CODE VIOLATIONS

If, at any time during the year, an exception in uniform is necessary, a note of explanation must be sent to the child’s teacher who will forward it to the principal. This note should indicate the expected date by which the uniform will be complete.  Uniforms should be purchased at the designated stores to ensure it is our dress code. Once variations occur, the dress code becomes ineffective.

Uniforms are to be the appropriate size for the student; no fad or oversized looks will be tolerated. Tee shirts should not be visible at collar, cuffs or below shirt’s hemline. Only plain white tee-shirts are acceptable under the school uniform. Girls must wear their uniforms no shorter than 1 inch above the knee and skirts are not to be rolled up.  This includes fad hairstyles and oversized uniforms as well as inappropriate dress-down clothing.  Students are not permitted to add colors to their hair or to hair extensions.  Girls’ hair accessories must lay flat on the student’s head with a minimum of decoration.  Bandanas, head wraps and hats are not permitted in school.  Jewelry is limited to 1 pair of earrings, one necklace with a cross or religious medal, one bracelet of a religious nature and one wrist watch.  Ear studs, piercings and chokers are not permitted in school.  If a student has a tattoo, it must not be visible during the school day. Parental support of the dress code is both expected and appreciated. Dress code violations will be seen as a conduct violation and will be reflected appropriately on the report card.

DISCIPLINE

In Grades K to 8-Teachers will communicate directly with parents concerning any non-academic area that needs improvement. Teachers will issue detentions for any non-academic area including dress code violations. Parents will be notified by the teacher to determine when the detention is to be served as well as the dismissal procedure and to discuss how the situation can be rectified.
