The uniform requirements are on file at Dennis Uniforms


All students must be in uniform every day.  Boys from Kindergarten through 8th grade are required to wear ties on Mass days. The tie may be worn over a white shirt and may be removed after the student returns to the classroom after Mass. There will be out-of-uniform days (free-choice) which will be announced during the course of the school year (a dress code for such days is included below).  If there is a time when the prescribed uniform cannot for some legitimate reason be worn, a note from the parent/guardian must be written to the Principal.  Students who are out of uniform without this excuse will be sent to the office and the parent will be called to bring the proper clothing to the student. 

Attire for P.E.

Middle school students must change into St. Mary Spirit Shirt and shorts. The girls must wear long, “basketball” style shorts for P.E. No female student may wear “sofee” cheerleading-style shorts for P.E.  If shorter shorts are worn, long compression shorts must be worn underneath. If there is a valid reason for a child not to change clothes for PE the reason must be supported by a written note from a parent. Disciplinary action may be taken with students not prepared with proper PE attire.

St. Mary spirit t-shirts and sweatshirts will be available in the school office.

Attire on Free Choice Days

Dress is expected to be conservative, appropriate and modest at all times. Students may wear jeans that fit, do not sag and have no holes in them. T-shirts are acceptable as long as they do not contain inappropriate language or advertise alcohol or tobacco products. Neither girls nor boys may wear tank tops. Young ladies who wish to wear skirts, dresses, or shorts may not have a hemline shorter than two inches above the knee. Crop tops are unacceptable, and midriffs must be covered at all times. Open toe or sling shoes are not permitted. Click here for the 2018-19 Free Choice & Spirit Day Calendar.
