dress code

The uniform policy is implemented to enhance community and provide a standard for modesty. Each student’s appearance must be discreet and modest. It is vital that students and parents heartily support the dress standards. Students who attend official school activities after school hours (either on or off campus) must wear clothing consistent with the standards set by the administration.


All students will wear school-approved uniforms while on campus during the school day and during daycare. Students are not allowed to change out of school uniforms while on school grounds at the end of the day. Parents will be contacted if students do not fully meet these requirements.
