UNIFORM POLICY

The School Advisory Council requires students to abide by the uniform policy as determined by school administration.  Compliance with the uniform policy is expected on the first day of school.  Personal appearance cannot distract from the educational setting of the school. P.E. uniforms are NOT to be worn on Mass days if the child’s class is ministering the school Mass. Only regular uniforms are to be worn on class field trips, not P.E. uniforms unless otherwise approved by school administration.
