Uniforms

The School Board designates a specific manner of dress for students. The purpose of the dress code is to provide an atmosphere conducive to learning and to assist in the maintenance of discipline and respect. Children must be in full uniform each day beginning with the first day of school. All uniforms should be purchased from the school supplier so that styles, colors, etc., are uniform and consistent. Repeated failure to comply with the dress code will be addressed by the principal. Continuing failure to conform to the dress code can result in a student not attending classes.

Pre Kindergarten boys and girls will wear the St. Joseph School Physical Education uniform. On warmer days, the T-shirt and shorts are worn, and on colder days the sweatshirt, T-shirt and sweat pants may be worn. All PreK students wear tennis shoes and shorts.

Students must wear supportive shoes. Backless and flip-flop-type shoes are not allowed. Other rules regarding makeup, jewelry, hair, etc., remain in place on Out-of-Uniform days. Clothing worn under the uniform may not be visible through or showing outside the regular school uniform.

The PE Teacher will determine dates for winter vs. warm weather attire each year depending on weather.

The principal and/or assistant principal will conduct a uniform check in each homeroom periodically during the year to assure that all students are adhering to the policy set forth by the school.   The final decision as to what constitutes proper and/or appropriate dress and grooming rests with the Administration.
