About the Uniform Policy
The school uniform marks each student as a member of St. Joseph School. It should be worn correctly, with respect and pride.
Please be sure to review the 2017-2018 Dress Code and Uniform Policy

Neatness and cleanliness in personal attire are part of a child’s education and the responsibility of the parents. When a child looks and feels good about himself/herself, he/she acts and works accordingly.
Personal appearance that constitutes a distraction is not permitted. Final approval/disapproval is at the discretion of the Principal.
Any student not in compliance with the dress code will first receive a behavior report, as indicated by the family handbook.
The student’s hair is to be neat and clean, and groomed conservatively. No highlighting, bleaching, extreme length or hairstyles are to be worn. Boys’ hair length is to be above the collar. All students must have their hair out of their eyes. Students are expected to come to school in a state of cleanliness.
Headbands and ribbons may only be the same color as the uniform: school plaid, red, white or black; fancy or long scarves may not be worn.
Although jewelry is not a part of the school uniform, post earrings of a small and conservative style are permitted to be worn by the girls (one earring only in each earlobe). Boys are not permitted to wear earrings. Bracelets (both ankle and wrist), pins and buttons are not a part of the school uniform. This includes all rope, yarn and beaded neck, wrist and ankle bands. A religious medal or cross on a chain is permitted. However, NO jewelry whatsoever may be worn to physical education classes.
Out of Uniform
If at any time during the year an exception in uniform is necessary, a note of explanation must be sent to the child’s teacher who will forward it to the principal. This note should indicate the expected date by which the uniform will be complete.
