All Students

No headgear, hoods or “doobies” may be worn at any time. Rosary beads may not be worn at any time. Clothes must not be oversized or baggy. During warm weather, young men and women may wear beige or tan uniform shorts to the knee. If shorts are worn at an inappropriate length, the student will be removed from classes for the day. Changing clothes in the bathroom, before school or after school, is not permitted.

Uniform Detention Policy: If students arrive out of dress code, they will be required to visit their teachers during the first period of the day in order to pick up the day’s work. They will then be placed in a Middle School classroom, where they will be expected to work on their assignments independently. They will be given a bag lunch, as they will not be permitted into the lunchroom, and must turn in all work and borrowed textbooks to the appropriate teachers by the end of the day. As high school is much more rigorous and the material is more challenging for students, arriving out of dress code places the student at a disadvantage and makes it harder for him/her to keep up with the workload.
