Uniform Rules

These rules are for your child’s safety. Failure to adhere to these rules could result in your child being sent home.

All students must wear their complete uniforms at all times unless otherwise instructed. Black shoes with black shoelaces must be worn to school and kept polished. Regular clothes can only be worn if a student is issued a “DRESS DOWN DAY” certificate. Sneakers must only be worn on gym days. When it snows, boots may be worn to school but students must quickly change into their school shoes upon arrival. Students can wear modest summer clothing for our 6-week summer program.

Girls

  • Hair must be well-groomed and kept neatly.
  • Uniform skirts must be at or below the knee. When temperatures drop and the weather is cold, girls are allowed to wear pants to school. They should quickly change into their complete uniform upon arrival.
  • No high heels should be worn to school.
  • No long or hoop earrings should be worn to school.
  • Girls should only wear one pair of earrings to school.
  • No nail polish is to be worn to school.

Boys

PERSONAL HYGIENE

Personal hygiene is important to the academic and personal development of students.

  • Students must come to school in clean, ironed clothes every day.
  • Students must make sure their teeth are brushed and cleaned daily.
  • Students must make sure their fingernails are short and clean. No nail polish.
  • Students must use deodorant, keep their ears clean, wash their faces and bathe daily.
