Uniform Policy 2019-20

We encourage our students to take pride in their St. Augustine Catholic School uniform. Our dress code fosters the goals of Catholic education by promoting concepts of equality and community in young people.  Therefore, proper school attire and grooming are considered an important element in creating an atmosphere in which educational objectives are met.  Parents will be notified when students fail to comply with the school uniform policy and consequences may include, but are not limited to, detention and/or loss of “dress differently” privileges.

The school administration has the final decision as to what is or is not a violation of the dress code.

Uniform Schedule


Spring/Summer uniform begins the first day of school and ends October 31st
Winter uniform is worn from November 1st through April 15th
Spring/Summer uniform can be worn again April 15th until the end of the school year
*During very cold weather, girls may wear their uniform sweatpants under their jumper or skirt to and from school.
 
Uniforms can be purchased from Flynn & O’Hara. Flynn and O’Hara donates a percentage of money from SAS uniform sales back to the school. Information regarding ordering and a scheduled fitting will be sent home at appropriate times. Orders may also be placed over the phone (800-441-4122) or online atwww.flynnohara.com, via personal credit card; all orders are shipped directly to your home.
 

On “no-uniform” or “dress-down” days, parents/guardians should exercise discretion when deciding what to allow the student to wear.

Unacceptable clothing items include but may not be limited to:

·         Tank tops, halter tops, tube tops, or spaghetti strap shirts

·         Shirts that are so short that abdomen or back skin will show when the student either reaches up or bends over

·         Pants/shorts that do not come up to the waistline

·         Shorts that are unacceptably short in length so that they cover too little of the thigh

·         Items of clothing with inappropriate language or graphics

·         Flip-flop shoes and dangling earrings (due to safety concerns)

Parents/guardians of students inappropriately dressed may be called and asked to bring the child’s uniform. Students inappropriately dressed will not be allowed to participate in any special activity taking place that day and may receive disciplinary consequences.

Failure to conform to any uniform/personal appearance standards may result in detention and/or suspension. The Administration shall be the sole judge of the criteria for personal appearance.
