Dress Code, Preschool

Our preschoolers do not wear a school uniform. Children should come dressed in comfortable clothing that can stand up to the playground, paint, markers, etc. For safety reasons, our children should not come to school in flip-flops or open-backed shoes.


Dress Code, Grades K to 5

On the bottom

  • Khaki colored only (tan or stone khaki, not green) Pants, skorts, skirts or shorts – twill style.
  • Jumpers and capri pants for girls are an option.
  • All skorts, skirts and shorts must be no shorter than 2“ above the middle of the knee.
  • All items listed above can be worn all year.
  • Pants are “docker style” only. No rivets at the pocket, no cargo pockets, no knit pants.

On the top

  • Polo style shirts
    • A polo style shirt is defined as a full short or long sleeve, button placket, non-fitted golf style shirt. It must be long enough to tuck into the pant or skirt. If when arms are raised, the shirt comes untucked, it is too short!
    • Can be short or long sleeve.
    • Can be white, green or navy in color. Green and navy shirts may only be purchased through the school that will have the approved SPS logo on them.
    • Only approved SPS logo on any shirt.
  • Other shirt options
    • A white button down blouse or dress shirt.
    • A white turtleneck shirt (full turtle neck, not mock turtleneck).

    • White only, no logo or colored trim.
  • Sweatshirts
    • White or navy blue solid colored pullover style sweatshirts only (no hoods).
    • School approved and sold SPS sweatshirts with logo.

Accessories

  • Belts
    • Belts must be worn at all times if the pant/short/skirt has belt loops. Belt loops are not allowed to be cut off.
    • Belts must be trouser style only: No scarf, ribbon or chain belts.
    • Belts may be any color.
  • Shoes/Socks
    • Can be any style shoe with a back strap on them, no slide on shoes or clogs. No sandals of any kind. (For clarification: the Croc style shoe with a strap is fine- straps must be used. Slip on tennis shoes are NOT ACCEPTABLE).
    • Socks of any style and color, appropriate with the shoe. Socks must be worn at all times.
  • Hair/Nails
    • No sculpturing hair cuts.
    • Boys: Hair must be off of collar in the back and bangs must be out of eyes.
    • Girls: Hair must be pulled out of eyes and properly groomed so that it is not a distraction.
    • Light colored nail polish only.
  • Jewelry/Makeup
    • No makeup for grades K-5.
    • Minimal jewelry- one earring per ear (No chandelier earrings or hoops larger than 1”).

It is the expectation of SPS that all uniform items must be in good repair to be worn to school. Pants must be hemmed, no fraying at the bottom; shirts must have all buttons attached. Uniforms must be clean and tidy at all times.

Kindergarten – 5th grade students will have one free dress Friday a month (last Friday of the month). In addition, they may also purchase a coupon book from the student council that allows them an additional 6 free dress Fridays throughout the year. Parent Club also gives free dress coupons for fundraising prizes and incentives for certain programs such as recycling. All Free Dress Coupons must be used on FRIDAYS ONLY. The school office will also offer free dress at their discretion for special holidays and events.

St. Patrick School considers the non-compliance of dress code to be a disrespect issue and disciplinary action will take place for repeated offenses. A detailed code of rules and consequences for dress code violations will be sent home with all students at the beginning of each school year.
