Uniform Policy

IMG_9259.JPG

Saint Mary students are expected to wear the designated uniform on all days. They are expected to dress neatly and be clean in appearance at all times. This includes having uniform shirts tucked in at all times.

It is the responsibility of the parent that the child is dressed according to the uniform code. The judgment of the principal is final in all questions regarding the school dress code. The first time a child is out of uniform, he/she will receive a conduct referral that must be signed by a parent and returned to the teacher who issued the referral. The second and all preceding times, the student will miss recess.

Preschoolers do not wear uniforms, however, socks and gym shoes should be worn and clothes should be comfortable and conducive to play.

All clothing must be labeled with the child’s last name. The following are the Saint Mary uniform requirements:

Non-uniform Day Dress Code

If the school is having a special dress-up day or if the students may dress out of uniform to go on a field trip, the attire worn to school should be proper and appropriate. Torn jeans or clothes that have inappropriate messages, which the school philosophy would not endorse, are not to be worn. If a student does wear such inappropriate clothing, (“inappropriate” as decided upon by the administration) he/she will be required to call home for a change of clothes or he/she will not be allowed to participate in any of the activities of that special day. Tank tops, spaghetti straps, low-cut tops, short shorts, or shirts which expose the midriff are never allowed.

Dress-up Day

Boys wear collared shirts. No shorts and no denim.

Girls wear “appropriate” dress up clothing.
