Uniform Policy

Dress Code / Uniform Policy

The purpose of the dress code/uniform policy is to foster a respectful, professional  learning environment with an emphasis on neatness and Christian modesty. Uniforms build a sense of community and decrease distractions which, in turn, increases academic focus. Parents/guardians are expected to support the  school’s enforcement of the dress code/uniform policy, helping reinforce an environment best  suited for learning and faith development. Students who do not comply may be asked to call their parent/guardian to bring appropriate attire to school. Repeated noncompliance with dress code/uniform requirements will be considered a discipline issue.

The following dress code/uniform guidelines are required for students in Kindergarten through eighth grade. Preschool students are not required to follow dress code/uniform guidelines.
