DRESS CODE AND UNIFORM EXPECTATIONS

Dressing appropriately for school and wearing the uniform correctly on uniform days is a statement that we are in a professional academic setting. It is a demonstration that we take our roles in our school seriously while helping show respect for those we encounter in our day, both inside and outside the school.  Our uniform is a part of our identity and a form of pride in our school.

Students are expected to wear clothing appropriate for the school and learning environment. For the first day of the week, Mass days, para-liturgies, and announced important school functions, all Immaculata students are in uniform.

EVERYDAY DRESS CODE

Students will attend school in neat and clean clothes that are in good repair (no frays or rips), and in keeping with a professional appearance (hems of skirts and shorts to the student’s fingertips, no tank tops, spaghetti straps or revealing clothing) and good taste (no clothing with unacceptable images or messages).  Hats are not to be worn in the school.

For PE class, there is a prescribed gym strip available from the PE department.

For the safety and comfort of those with sensitivities or allergies to fragrances, please avoid perfume, cologne, and body spray. An effective deodorant, however, is a must!

UNIFORM DAYS

On uniform days, all expectations outlined above regarding professional and good taste remain.

Lands’ End is the official supplier of the Immaculata school uniform: a selection of white or black polo shirts, and black or khaki bottoms.
