UNIFORM DRESS CODE
The school uniform is a symbol of our school. As such, we expect students to look and be representative of their St. Andrew School Catholic Education. A well-groomed appearance, neatness and cleanliness in both dress and person are important and expected. All students in grade K-8 are required to dress according to the school’s uniform dress code. Lands End is the school’s authorized uniform supplier. Parents are asked to see that their child(ren) are dressed in accord with the requirements of our uniform dress code found in the school handbook.
GENERAL CODE for ALL STUDENTS
Students are expected to maintain a clean and neat appearance. Clothing worn should always be consistent with the mission of the school. Modesty in dress requires skirts, jumpers, and shorts to be knee length (no more than 3” above the knee cap). Belts are to be worn with uniform pants/shorts (2nd-8th grade). Exposed shoulders and tops with low-cut fronts and/or backs are not acceptable for any school activity held before, during, or after school. No clothing is to be worn at any time that could be interpreted as offensive, derogatory, lacking in modesty, or that promotes violence, alcohol, tobacco or drugs.
Shirts must be tucked in. Shirts worn under the uniform shirt must be a standard white undershirt. Colored shirts or shirts with imprints are not to be worn under the uniform.
Visible socks, crew-length or anklets of uniform colors – solid white, navy, khaki, or hunter green must be worn by all students. Socks may not have designs or company logos.
Hair should be well groomed and out of the eyes. Boy’s hair should be off the ears and shirt collar. Fad hairstyles (stripes, tails, colored-hair, beads, etc.) are not permitted. No facial hair is permitted for boys.
Non-scuff gym/running shoes are acceptable. Shoes with black composition or rubber soles that mark the floor are not allowed. Boots, crocks, flip-flops, wheelies, sandals, clogs, high heels, slippers, UGGS, etc. are NOT allowed.
