St. Katharine School Uniform Code and Appearance Guidelines

Attire and Appearance

The appearance and attire of our students is of utmost importance. It is a fact that student behavior, attitudes, and effective learning improve when students are dressed appropriately. School is not primarily social and fashionable in nature, and students need to see their school wardrobe as different and more "professional" than their "casual" clothes. Students are expected to present a neat and clean appearance.

Full dress uniforms are required on all school days unless otherwise designated.

Boys must wear belts with pants and shorts. Shirts must be tucked in at all times. Pants should be neatly hemmed or cuffed- no cut or frayed bottoms. Pants and shorts should be the correct size- not oversized or hanging from the behind.

Girls' skirts and jumpers should be no more than one inch above the knee. Blouses should fit appropriately so they are not pulling at the buttons. Blouses must be tucked in at all times.

Only brown crew neck or v-neck button down cardigan sweaters may be worn in the classroom during cold weather. Hoodies, sweat jackets, denim jackets, etc., may not be worn in the classroom.

Makeup is not allowed, only non-glossy chap stick or lip balm. Nail polish is not allowed except clear gloss.

Jewelry and Accessories

Girls are allowed to wear 1 pair of earrings - Small studs or hoops no larger than a nickel. No dangling earrings are allowed.

Girls are allowed to wear one bracelet - no large bangles.

Girls may wear a necklace with a small pendant or cross.

Boys are not allowed to wear earrings.

No student is allowed to have any accessories depicting inappropriate subject manner such as guns, drugs, gang affiliations, skulls and cross bones, etc. Accessories are items such as hair bands, key chains, wallets, purses, etc.

Girls may carry a small purse for personal feminine items.

Hair Styles and Grooming

Hairstyles must conform to good grooming. Fad cuts (e.g. mohawks, punk, etc.) are not acceptable. Unnatural hair color is not acceptable. Boys are not allowed to have braids or corn rows.

The uniform code will be strictly enforced. If students are not in complete uniform, they will be sent home to be properly dressed and/or receive a detention.
