Dress Code & Uniforms

SJS Students: Dressed for Success!

DRESS CODE

Uniforms are to be worn by children in Pre-K through Grade Five. Parents are required to maintain the integrity of the uniform policy by ensuring that their child is appropriately dressed before arriving at school. Shorts may be worn from September through October 31 and then again after returning from spring break.

The basic uniform for boys and girls is navy blue bottoms, and red polo shirts, short or long sleeves with school logo on it. Girls may wear navy blue jumpers with the school logo on it. Girls may wear white blouse with a Peter Pan collar only under their jumpers. Lands’ End is our official uniform supplier and gives 3% of all purchases back to St. Joseph’s School. Land’s End is found at landsend.com/school on line.   French Toast at www.frenchtoast.com also supplies uniforms. Land’s End and French Toast catalogs are available in the school office. The order number for Land’s End is 900029885. The source code for French Toast is QS479E7 You may also purchase uniforms at JC Penney, Wal-Mart, Target, Old Navy etc. or any other store as long as the clothing conforms to the policy.

Children may wear St. Joseph School spirit shirt on Thursday with their uniform pants.

The uniform policy is incorporated into our citizenship program, “Make Your Day”. Children who come to school out of uniform will have a note sent home with them asking to be in uniform the following day. Let’s help our children to “do what is expected and to do it the best that they can”.

HAIR

No faddish haircuts/styles, hair coloring/bleaching. Boy’s hair should be short neatly combed. Girl’s hair long or short should be neatly trimmed, combed away from the face, and contained in braids, pony tails or with appropriate clips, headbands, scrunchies, etc. Bangs are kept trim above the eyebrows.  Tattoos even if temporary are not part of the uniform. Children are not to wear make-up, including nail polish, to school. Girls are only allowed to wear one pair of post or stud earrings (small).

FREE DRESS DAYS 

Free dress days will be announced in advance. On photo day, students are given the option to wear “their Sunday best” for pictures. However, they must bring their uniform and change immediately after their photo is taken. On such occasions where the uniform is not worn, the student shall dress appropriately with shirts tucked in, no hats, no tank tops or spaghetti straps and no makeup. This dress code shall apply to any school-sanctioned event.

Sister Olga's STUDENT Dress Code Guide

Parents see that your children come to school:

  • bathed, hair combed, and in clean pressed clothes
  • in complete approved school uniforms, and
  • in keeping with the Student Dress Code

The principal determines appropriate school dress. Parents cooperate by enforcing the dress code. The homeroom teacher checks for proper dress daily during opening exercises.

A notice is issued to students who are not in proper uniform or are not practicing good personal hygiene. Upon receipt of such notice, parent and student take corrective measures.

The school uniform is used in Pre-4 to 5th grade and is worn every day unless otherwise specified.
