- Dress Code -

            Neatness and cleanliness in personal attire are very much part of a child’s education and are the responsibility of the parent and the child.  Help your child to practice good health habits, which we attempt to reinforce at school.  It is expected that the appearance of each student will always be in accord with refined taste and good home training. 

  • Uniforms should be neat and clean at all times with the family name in each item of clothing.
  • Hair should be kept neat, clean, and appropriately cut.  Boy’s hair length may not exceed the back of the hairline below the collar of shirt or hanging above collar, eyebrows, and ears. Girl’s hair must be kept off the face at all times.  Boy’s & girl’s hair should never be in the eyes.
  • Fad haircuts, colored nail polish, acrylic nails or tips, tattoos, and make-up are not permitted.  Students are encouraged to wear a religious medal and chain.  That is the only jewelry that is acceptable along with an appropriate ring.
  • Boys may not wear earrings.  Girls may wear one pair of small post earrings.
  • All socks are to be visible above the ankle regardless of the current shoe style. If a tee shirt is worn under any shirt, it must be plain white .
  • For Girls K - 8 kilts, wraps, skorts, and jumpers must be more than 3 inches above the knees and are not permitted to be rolled up.

            Every student is required to wear the complete approved school uniform unless special permission has been given by the Principal to omit it.   Trying to be fair and consistent is very difficult and it takes parental support and cooperation.  This parental support for known rules/policies encourages a child to cooperate.  There can be no exceptions. If your child is not in complete school uniform, he/she will be advised by any teacher who will issue a demerit. Administration reserves the right to make final decisions in this regard.  This gentle reminder is for you to act upon immediately

Shoe Policy

             Selected footwear is part of the Saint Catharine School uniform.  Since we do not have a uniform shoe, we identify specific parameters regarding footwear for all students.  We also do not identify specific “brand names” because of the changing styles.  Safety and neatness are the primary concerns for our student’s footwear.  We advise parents to send your child to school in a safe, comfortable, and presentable shoe.

School shoe guidelines:

  • Footwear must be firmly secured to feet

  • Shoes must be dark colored, navy, brown, or black with a non-marking sole.

  • Shoes with a heel no higher than 1-inch are acceptable.

  • No athletic sneakers may be worn

  • Clogs, flip-flops, or plastic soles are not permitted.

NOTE:     Students wear their gym uniform to school on the days designated for gym class. This is to include sweat pants and sweat shirt when winter school uniforms are required.  Regulation physical education uniforms are to be worn by all students for Physical Education, in order for students to participate in their physical education class.  For safety reasons jewelry will be removed during physical education class.

 

            Parents and students are expected to cooperate by complying with all dress codes. If a circumstance prevents a child from wearing the uniform on a given day, a note signed by a parent must be presented to the homeroom teacher.

 

Continued violation of the school dress code

will be reflected in a student’s grade.
