School Uniform Policy

Uniforms are to be purchased through Dennis Uniform - St. Raymond school code: M55RAY

Chapter VIII: School Uniform Policy: Parent-Student Handbook

The principal reserves the right to amend, suspend or add any new rules to the aforementioned policy. Students are to wear the school uniform from the beginning to the end of the school day. This is intended to eliminate distracting competition in dress and to evidence a constructive spirit and pride in the school and in each other.

It is the responsibility of the parents to make sure that students observe the dress code of the school. Students who must be out of any portion of the uniform should bring a note signed by the parents to the classroom teacher and the office explaining the reason for being out of uniform.

Students who arrive at school without proper uniform will be asked to call home to request the appropriate/missing pieces be delivered. Failure to arrive in and maintain proper uniform for students in grades 6-8 will result in detention. Chronic uniform violations will result in further disciplinary action including (but not limited to) suspension and expulsion.

Used uniforms (in good condition) are accepted and are offered at a reduced price through St. Raymond School. All uniform items must be labeled clearly with the child’s first and last names.
