ADDITIONAL GUIDELINES

  • Uniforms should be clean and neat at all times
  • Belts should be brown or black leather and must be worn with all shorts and pants.  
  • Skirts should be no shorter than 3” above the middle of the knee cap—from the front and from the back. If a student’s skirt is too short, they will be required to purchase a new one. 
  • Oxford shirts must be tucked in at all times, buttoned to the second-from-the-top button, collar buttons buttoned down, and cuffs buttoned. Students may not roll up their sleeves except during activities such as art, science labs, and playing outside during a break.
  • If an undershirt is worn, it should be white.
  • Students must wear a school polo or oxford shirt beneath any school sweater.
  • Hair should be styled in a way that is consistent with the spirit of this policy. Male students must wear their hair above the collar, eyebrows, and ears.
  • Jewelry and makeup (if worn) should be simple and tasteful. 
  • No visible tattoos or piercings (except up to two piercings per ear lobe for the ladies).
  • Male students may not grow facial hair.

SHOES/SOCKS/TIGHTS

Students should wear shoes that are comfortable and practical.

Dress Up Uniform Shoes: Students are required to wear dress shoes on dress up days.

Girls: Black, brown, white, or navy leather closed-toe dress shoes, with heels no higher than 2″.

Boys: Black or brown leather dress shoes.

Non Dress Up Uniform Shoes: On non dress up days, students may express themselves in their footwear as long as they stay within these guidelines:

  • Shoes must have a back or a back strap
  • No flip-flops, Crocs, slippers, boots, high heels (over 2″)
  • No shoes with inappropriate graphics
  • Shoe color and style should be in good taste

Socks/Tights: There are no color restrictions on no-show socks. However, if a student chooses to wear longer socks or tights, they must be solid black, dark navy, gray, or white. Fishnets, footless tights, and leggings are not permitted.
