​​Students are best prepared for school when they are properly dressed and groomed.  They are expected to follow standards of cleanliness, neatness, and modesty in everything they wear.  Students wear a uniform in order to promote a feeling of equality for all children while discouraging competition in dress.  We take pride in our school and the uniform provides a means of identity for the students with our school. For this reason, we sincerely hope that you respect the uniform policy, which will be strictly enforced.

 

Emphasis should be placed on good taste, neatness, cleanliness, and modesty.  If a student frequently offends against published standards of dress, grooming, or hygiene, and has been corrected in this regard, the cooperation of parents should be sought to correct the problem.

 

A student out of uniform will be issued a "conduct referral" which must be signed by the student and parent and returned to the teacher/faculty member. After three "conduct referrals," the student will receive a detention.  Students who need a haircut or who need to lengthen their skirts will be issued a formal warning.  Students will have until the following Monday to be in compliance.  A detention will be issued if the problem was not resolved following the weekend. A student's conduct grade will be lowered by repeated uniform notice violations. The school reserves the right to have students out of dress code change into a school-supplied uniform item. The school does not guarantee that the supplied uniform items will be to size and/or coordinate with dress code or free dress outfits. School-supplied uniform items that are not returned by the end of the week in which they were issued will be subject to a replacement-cost charge.​

​Required Uniform:  All uniform clothing must be purchased from Dennis Uniform, Hello Nella​, and the online OLG Store.
