Dress Code for PreKindergarten and preschool

There is no formal uniform for students in Prekindergarten or Preschool. However, students are expected to dress according to the “Out-of-Uniform” policy.

 

“Out of Uniform” Days

Periodically students will be allowed a special day out of uniform. Authorized uniform passes may also be used on designated days (usually the first and third Fridays of every month).  Even on out of uniform days, it is expected that children dress according to our standards of safety, modesty, and decency. In order to continue this occasional privilege, the following is required:

  • No child should wear shorts or skirts any shorter than three inches above the knee.
  • Girls may not wear halter tops, bare-back tops, bare-midriff shirts, or tank/cami tops. Shoulders must be covered. Boys may not wear bare-midriff or sleeveless shirts.
  • Girls should wear shorts under skirts or dresses.
  • Clothes should be comfortable and loose-fitting. Clothing should not be overly tight or revealing. Jeans should not have holes, rips or be ‘cut-offs’.  In middle school, leggings and yoga pants must be worn with a long shirt or dress that goes to mid-thigh.
  • No child will be allowed to wear any clothing with pictures and/or writing that are not appropriate for children at a Catholic school. Teachers and school administrators will make the decision of what is appropriate for a Catholic school, and this decision will be final.
  • Children should wear safe and appropriate play shoes on out-of-uniform days. No child may wear any of the following: flip flops, sandals, skates or skate shoes, sneakers with battery-operated lights, high heels, or any other shoe that is unsafe or that will cause a classroom distraction.
  • Students must wear socks or tights.

 

The school administration will immediately contact parents if a child arrives at school dressed inappropriately. In these cases, a parent may be contacted to bring proper clothing to school or given the opportunity to wear a uniform from the ‘used uniform’ collection.

The principal is the final arbiter in all matters pertaining to the uniform and dress code and will make the final determination of appropriateness, as it affects the general learning environment.  Parents are expected to support the uniform policies of Divine Redeemer Catholic School.
