Compliance with the St. Mary School dress code is important because it helps the children develop a sense of pride in themselves and their school and is a unifying sign of school spirit. The school depends on parental support and cooperation to enforce this uniform policy.
Students in K-8 are expected to be in full uniform on all school days unless an “out-of-uniform day” is indicated. An out-of-uniform slip will be issued to any student who does not comply with uniform rules. After three (3) out-of-uniform slips have been given, a detention will be served.

Walking Shorts – Seasonal Option
From the first day of school until October 1st, and after May 1st, students may wear either uniform, knee length, walking shorts with their uniform blouse or shirt or their full school uniform.
All students must wear their own smock to art class to protect their uniforms. This can be an old oversized shirt or apron. On days when paint is used, they will not be able to participate without one.
Students are allowed to be out of uniform for special occasions. There are generally two kinds of out-of-uniform days: dress-up days and dress-down days. On dress-down days, the school may collect a fee of $1.00, used for charitable needs.
On dress-down days, jeans, gym shoes and a more casual look is allowed. Students must dress modestly at all times. Students are never allowed to wear clothing with off-color comments imprinted on them, advertisements of alcohol, etc. Leggings, jeggings, halters, midriffs, spaghetti straps, low cut or strapless tops are not allowed. When in season, shorts must be at least a 7 inch inseam or Bermuda shorts. Make-up and jewelry code apply on out-of-uniform days. Students must exercise common sense. Parental cooperation is needed and appreciated. A student may be required to change clothing if it does not meet standards.
