Uniform Dress Code

The regulation school uniform is to be worn by each student every school day unless told otherwise. The regular uniform is can be purchased at Flynn & O’Hara (see link to Flynn & O’Hara below) and the Physical Education uniform can be purchased at Link.

Students arriving to school without proper attire will be required to call home to have the correct clothing brought to the school. If a parent cannot bring the appropriate attire to the school, the student will receive consequences.  Specifics for both the dress code and purchasing a uniform are issued when parents/guardians register their children at Link.
