Uniforms

All Saints Academy students should always present themselves in a clean and neat manner. It is important that students take pride in their personal appearance and comply with school regulations governing dress, as well as learn the etiquette of proper dress and modesty. Students that do not comply with the regulations may not be allowed entrance to their classroom to participate. Parents will be notified if their child is not permitted to participate in his/her classroom activities. Complete cooperation by parents in this matter of school policy is expected.

The uniform policy must be followed as directed by the Uniform Requirements information that is listed below. Our uniform policy is quite explicit so that parents can serve as the first and most important examiner of their child’s attire each morning. Each family should strive for a strict interpretation of the uniform guidelines. Sentiments such as “I’ve seen other kids wear this”, or “The Teacher/Principal have never complained”, only serve to undermine the general expectations, and by extension, the classroom environment.

In some cases the principal may modify the uniform policy. The school will make a best effort to communicate any changes to the parents in a timely fashion.

Uniform Guidelines

Clothing and attire should not distract from the learning environment.  Please contact the principal with any questions.

This includes the following expectations for attire:

  • Any jewelry should be simple and non-distracting
  • Make up is not allowed
  • Nail polish should be pale or clear, and non-distracting
  • Girls may wear earrings, but may not wear earrings that dangle in gym class or during sporting events. Boys may not wear earrings.
  • Cologne and Perfumes should not be worn, as some students have allergic reactions to these items.
  • Hair Styles should be kept clean and neat.
    • Boys – hair should be no longer than touching the collar with bangs out of the eyes
    • Girls – bangs should be out of the eyes
    • Color – brightly colored or distracting hair dye is not allowed
  • Some uniform options are only applicable during the Winter or Summer seasons. The seasons are divided as follows:
    • Winter Season – November 1st through April 30th
    • Summer Season – September through October 31st; May 1st through June

Uniform Requirements

Winter Guidance:

Please make sure your students come dressed to go outside.  Students go outside every day for recess, unless it is less than 20° F, or the weather warrants them to be inside.  Please ensure students have coats, hats, gloves, mittens, and boots during the winter months.  During the school day, a uniform fleece can be worn throughout the school building.  Students wearing boots to school should bring a change of shoes, as boots, including fashion boots, cannot be worn during the school day.

Gym Uniform:

The gym uniform is required for grades K-8.  There are many available in the school uniform closet.

Students in grades K-3 may wear their gym uniform throughout the school day on gym days.

Students in grades 4-8 must wear their regular uniform to school and change into and out of their gym uniform on gym days.

Out of Uniform Days:

Throughout the school year, the students will have “dress-down” days.  These are usually included as part of participation in a school service day.

On one of these days, students may come to school in clothing other than their uniform, but must adhere to the following dress code:

  • Jeans must be blue or black and cannot have any holes
  • Dresses and skirts must reach the knee
  • Loose sweat pants may be worn, but no yoga pants or tights are allowed
  • T-shirts must not contain any inappropriate material
  • No spaghetti strap shirts or mid-drift tops may be worn

If students are not dressed in the code on out of uniform days, parents will be notified and expected to bring a change of clothes to their child.  If frequent problems persist, administration reserves the right to discontinue dress-down days for the entire school.

Uniform Closet:

The school maintains a collection of gently used school and gym uniforms for our families.  Please inquire in the office if you are interesting in using or donating to this resource.
