School Uniforms and Dress Codes

Updated 2016-2017 

 

Rationale for School Uniforms

It is the custom and policy of Trinity Catholic School to require students to wear school uniforms.  It is our belief that the wearing of school uniforms:

  • Eliminates the pressure to buy expensive fad clothing
  • Removes distracting apparel from classrooms
  • Shifts the emphasis from the outward appearances of how one is attired to the inner qualities of one’s personality and values
  • Gives evidence of student membership in the family of Trinity Catholic School
  • Identifies students with the standards, values, and expectations of Trinity Catholic School

 

Uniform Policy

All students in grades K-6 are expected to be in uniform every day, except for dress-out days.  Parents are responsible for seeing that their children have proper clothes and uniforms for school.  An out of uniform slip will be given to a student out of uniform and parents must sign this slip and return it to school the next day.  After three offenses, parents will be required to bring in the correct uniform item.

An announced two-hour delay in school start time will no longer be a dress-down day.
