SAINT BERNADETTE CATHOLIC SCHOOL DRESS CODE

2018-2019

The dress code provides a standard for our students that fosters respectful behavior and is conducive to the learning environment. Uniforms are designed to help students grow in the virtues of modesty and dignity. They help to celebrate the intrinsic gifts of each individual. Final decisions regarding the school uniform rest with the principal.

Uniforms with the 2017-18 logo will be allowed during the 2018-19 school year only.

GENERAL APPEARANCE AND CLEANLINESS

When parents send their child to Saint Bernadette School, it is understood that they agree to uphold the uniform policy. If a child comes to school without a complete uniform, the parents are expected to send a note to the teacher explaining why. It is expected that students come to school properly bathed and groomed, neatly dressed, and in clean clothes. All uniform shirts must be buttoned and tucked in at all times. PE shirts must fit and can be worn untucked. Flynn & O’Hara offers several approved styles of shoes for the uniform, but parents may shop elsewhere for socks and shoes only.
