SCHOOL UNIFORM REGULATIONS

 

DRESS CODE (3303)

St. Gregory the Great School has a standard uniform dress for all students, which will promote dignity, cleanliness, unity, respectfulness, and good health.  It is important that parents and students alike keep in mind that while in uniform, both on and off campus, students represent St. Gregory the Great School.  School uniforms serve the family in three ways:  it assures equality in dress and it reduces the cost of clothing for children who are at a rapid stage of growth.  Our school uniforms also unite us with a sense of pride for our school.  However, as the term “uniform” denotes, the dress must be standard; it is not uniform if there is a prescribed article of clothing missing or substituted.  All uniforms must be sized appropriately; oversized uniform clothing may not be worn. Students are expected to follow the dress code expectations of their biological sex throughout the school day and during all school events, which include, but are not limited to, athletics, extracurricular and social activities.

 

Uniforms must be purchased from Dennis School Uniforms located at 431 Isom # 101, 78216 School shoes (select styles) must be purchased from School Shoes Unlimited located at 2109 Vance Jackson Rd.
