Uniform Policy

Uniforms

By sending your child to St. Francis de Sales Catholic Academy, you are agreeing to have your child wear the uniform that has been selected. Students are expected to be in complete uniform at all times unless something unusual happens and a note is sent in by the parent.

Jewelry is not part of the uniform. Girls may wear one small earring in the lobe of each ear. They are not permitted to wear make-up or dark nail polish. Boys are not permitted to wear earrings. There should be no writing on body parts (hands, arms, legs, etc.)

Both boys and girls are to have moderate, neat hairstyles. Boys may not have hair covering their ears. If there is a question concerning hairstyles, the decision will be up to the principals discretion.

Students failing to conform to uniform regulations will be given a demerit or out of uniform notice. If the problem continues, they will be given detention.

Biking shorts, tank tops, crop shirts flip-flops, or jewelry may not be worn to gym class, on dress down days, or on field trips.
