All students in grades TK-8 are required to own a COMPLETE uniform. You may visit Dennis Uniform Company to purchase uniform items. www.DennisUniform.com
Clothes must always conform to rules of modesty, good taste and appropriateness. We ask parents’ cooperation to see that the school uniform is worn at all times. It is not the responsibility of school personnel to be constantly reminding students about proper uniforms. Non-uniform items may be confiscated. If a child is unable to be in full uniform, a written note of explanation must be presented to the teacher for each day the student is out of uniform.
Some excuses may not be acceptable. Long-term excuses are not acceptable. STUDENTS WHO ARE OUT OF UNIFORM WILL BE GIVEN A UNIFORM INFRACTION NOTICE TO BE TAKEN HOME AND SIGNED. Behavior grades will be seriously affected by uniform violations.
SAINT JANE FRANCES De CHANTAL UNIFORM/ DRESS CODE
Uniform is required on all school days, including field trips, unless otherwise authorized by the principal.
The St. Jane Frances de Chantal School Uniform Code applies to all grades.
There are several important reasons for the uniform code:
Dress represents religious and cultural values. St. Jane Frances de Chantal, as a Catholic school, cannot allow clothing and accessories that are counter to religious values of modesty, respect for others and for oneself.
A school uniform provides for justice and equality for the student body.
Fashion or cultural trends that come and go often embrace attitudes directly opposed to religious and cultural values. Neatness, cleanliness and simplicity are keeping with SJF values.
Practical purposes are attained: Good dress encourages good behavior and morale. Looking presentable induces self-respect.
Social enhancement is achieved: St. Jane Frances de Chantal presents itself to the public as something special, as a religious school with strong values. The proper dress of our students shows a little bit of who we are to others.
The physical appearance of the student must be neat at all times. It is the responsibility of the parents to see that their child(ren) comes to school in the appropriate uniform. Parents and students must abide by the School Uniform Code. To ensure the proper return of a lost uniform, please write the student’s name on the tags of all uniform items. The Faculty and Staff will enforce the School Uniform Code. Failure to follow the guidelines may result in a conference with the principal.
All school uniform clothing must be purchased through Dennis Uniform.
Hair must be neat, clean, and out of the student’s face. Only natural hair colors are permitted, no two-tone styles or designs carved into the hair.
