Below are the upcoming change regarding our school's uniform policy, which will be implemented at the beginning of the next academic year.
After careful consideration, the school administration has decided to introduce a new uniform design for our students. We believe that this change will have several positive impacts on our school community, fostering a sense of unity, professionalism, and pride among our students.
The new uniform has been carefully designed to ensure comfort, functionality, and adherence to our school's values.
To ensure a smooth transition, we would like to provide you with the following details regarding the new uniform:
The new uniform features are:
Previously purchased polos with Saint John’s Catholic Prep in script may still be worn. The khaki skorts and skirts will no longer be worn as part of the uniform.
2. Dress Code:
The dress code guidelines for the new uniform will remain consistent with the uniform policy found in our handbook. Students are expected to wear the complete uniform as outlined in our handbook. Specific items to note:
Failure to adhere to the policies will result in a notification home, expectation to rectify the uniform infraction immediately, and detention.
Please note that grooming and personal hygiene standards remain unchanged. Boys’ hair should be above collar length and facial hair is not permitted. All boys should be clean shaven every day. Boys may not wear earrings, gauges, or have nose piercings.
Girls’ skirts are to be of modest length (no more than three inches above the knee) and may not be altered to be shorter than the standard length. Excessive makeup or jewelry is not permitted. Only ear piercings and wearing of earrings is permitted. No other piercings are allowed, i.e. nose rings/piercings, gauges, etc.
For both boys and girls, eccentric hair colors and styles are not permitted. No visible tattoos are permitted. If a student has a tattoo, it must be covered while on campus.
3. Implementation Date:
The new uniform will be implemented starting from orientation day – Freshmen, August 17th, Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors, August 22nd. We understand that transitioning to a new uniform may take some time, so we kindly request your cooperation in ensuring that your child is prepared for the change by this date.
We have partnered with Flynn & O’Hara, and all items can be ordered through their website.
We believe that the introduction of the new uniform will strengthen the sense of belonging within our school community, create a more collegiate feeling within the hallways and classrooms, and instill a greater pride in our students' appearance and overall school spirit. We kindly request your support in ensuring that your child adheres to the new uniform changes as well as the uniform policies in all areas, as it contributes to maintaining a positive and focused learning environment for all students.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding the uniform change, please do not hesitate to contact us. We greatly value your feedback and involvement in the education of your child.
Thank you for your continued support and cooperation. Together, we can make this transition a success and create an even better learning environment for our students.
