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 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 staff and 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 modesty (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 modesty and good taste remain.

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

SPECIAL NOTES

  • Previous iterations of the school uniform are permitted but different uniforms may not be combined.  For example, students may wear the former white dress shirt and tie with black pants/skirt/shorts OR the Lands’ End polo and khakis. Wearing the polo shirts with black bottoms, or wearing the dress shirt and tie with khakis is not permitted.
  • The exception to the above is that the former black crested school sweater (black cardigan, long sleeve V-neck or sweater vest) may be worn with the Lands’ End uniform.  Lands’ End also has grey sweaters to go with the polos and khakis.
  • Leggings and yoga pants are not part of the school uniform.
  • Hosiery should be neutral and shoes should be reasonable.
  • Students who have team or club sweatshirts and/or Mustangs hoodies are welcome to wear them over their uniforms for the Monday assembly and during the day. Team outerwear must be removed for Mass or para-liturgies. Uniform sweaters may be worn for warmth during these times.
  • School teams and clubs may also order special uniform shirts to be worn on uniform days.  The shirts must be polo shirts, may be only white or black and final approval must be obtained from the principal before ordering.

Presentable dress and uniform conformity are at the discretion of the administration.
