Uniforms

DRESS CODE POLICY

At Saint Andrew Catholic School students shall be dressed appropriately at all times.  Students are required to be in complete uniform every day.  Exceptions are special occasions including but not limited to: Denim Dollar Days, student’s birthday and other specified regular non-uniform day. Please ensure that your child maintains a neat, clean and well-groomed appearance and comes in the complete school uniform.  If, for any reason, your child is not wearing the school uniform, please send a written explanation to the teacher.

At Saint Andrew Catholic School we take pride in our appearance.  We believe in a uniform policy for the following reasons:

1. It allows the student to focus on academics rather than on dress.

2. It helps to eliminate competition for expensive and/or fad clothing.

3. It helps the student when getting ready for school in the morning.

School is the “job” of our students. Therefore, it is important for all individuals in the school community to dress appropriately.  This shows respect for each other and for one’s self.  Pride in one’s appearance is important in academic and professional settings.  The dress code will be enforced during school hours and while on school property and may be enforced for any school sponsored or school related event.  Interpretation of the dress code will be at the sole discretion of the principal or designee.
