UNIFORM POLICY

Important note: The only items that must be purchased from Lands’ End are the green or blue Cathedral gym t-shirt, navy Cathedral gym shorts, and blue Cathedral sweats; the Cathedral plaid jumper; the Cathedral plaid kilt; the blue fleece zip; the Cathedral khaki skort; and the Cathedral blue polo shirt. All other items may be purchased at any store of your choosing.

The school uniform, be it the summer, winter, or gym uniform, is to be worn with pride. A well-groomed, neat appearance bespeaks a student ready to learn. As students grow older they may assume responsibility for the care of their uniforms. In the lower grades, parents are to monitor the way the students are groomed. Undershirts or T-shirts under white shirts or blouses are to be white with no markings. The length of the girls' skirts, jumpers, skorts, and shorts are to be representative of a Catholic school (no shorter than 2” above the knee). Rolling waistbands or deep hems or rolled cuffs on shorts are not permitted. Eye make-up, lip gloss, blush, nail polish (other than clear), and tattoos are not permitted. Socks must be “crew socks.”

All students are to be in complete uniform and well groomed. Hair for boys should not cover the eyebrows or ears and should not touch their collar in the back. Hair for girls should be natural color with no dyes or tints. Note: The principal and assistant principal have sole discretion in determining whether something not listed here is not appropriate for a Catholic school.

Jewelry is limited to:
• Religious necklace (boys and girls)
• SMALL stud earrings (girls only)
• Watch (boys and girls)
