Uniforms

To promote discipline and to foster pride in being a student at Holy Spirit Regional Catholic School, and wearing a uniform does indeed achieve that purpose, students are expected to follow the dress code. Adherence to a uniform dress code serves two purposes: Students appear neat and well groomed, and distractions from schoolwork and activities are minimized. All students are required to wear the approved uniform. On special occasions students are not required to wear the uniform: These days will be announced. Untidy or unkempt clothes are never permitted, nor are clothes with inappropriate logos. Boy Scout and American Heritage uniforms are permitted on the day of the scout meeting.

EXCEPTIONS OR SUBSTITUTIONS TO THE SCHOOL DRESS CODE MUST BE APPROVED, IN ADVANCE, BY THE PRINCIPAL.

The very purpose of our school enforcing a uniform policy is to achieve quality and consistency among our students in their style of dress.  If these uniform regulations are to succeed, it will take the combined effort of students, PARENTS and school personnel to see to it that every child comes to school in the proper uniform.

If, for any reason, a child must be out of uniform, a note of explanation, signed and dated by the parent, must accompany the student and be given to the homeroom teacher.

Please print your child’s name on all articles of clothing worn to school and regularly check the lost and found box located in the cafeteria for missing articles.  Articles not claimed are periodically given to the poor.  For Dress Code violations, the child’s parents will be called in order to bring the item necessary to complete the uniform.  The child will wait in the office until the parent arrives with the necessary item.  After three documented incidences, the child will be ineligible for out-of uniform passes for the remainder of the year.

It is the responsibility of all parents to ensure their child is dressed according to policy, or be inconvenienced when they are not.
