Dress Code and Uniform Standards
In today’s fashion conscious culture, there is an overwhelming pressure to appropriate individual worth through one’s outward image, which too often contributes to unhealthy attitudes and behaviors. Here at St. Joseph, we strive to encourage the student to express themselves through their character and individual personality and not through their outward appearance. Our mission, is to serve God by providing a challenging academic education, rooted in Catholic values and morals.
Students are expected to be dressed in a manner consistent with accepted Christian community standards of good taste. Local school administration shall develop, publish, and maintain uniform and/or dress code regulations. Each Catholic school in the diocese requires the wearing of a school uniform. A written policy and guidelines for the uniform must be communicated to all parents and students annually.
Procedure for Change
When a change in the uniform is needed or a majority of the parents desire a change, the Principal must give the parents of students and the school staff the opportunity for input.Options are to be studied according to a process determined by the Principal of the school in consultation with staff and parent/guardian representatives. To insure that an unnecessary burden is not placed on parents who are already facing extra financial responsibilities, they must be given notice prior to registration for the following year to prepare for the change. Special consideration must be given to seniors in high schools, eighth graders, and special circumstance students who shall not be required to be in the "new" uniform, but allowed to wear out the old uniform.
Policies and ProceduresInterpretation of the Uniform
The Principal, assisted by the Vice Principal and Dean, interprets the application of the uniform and of the following policies.
When the Uniform is worn:
On an academic day, unless otherwise specified, a student will be in uniform at all times while on campus, either from the time the student arrives until he/she leaves or from the time the student arrives until he/she must change clothes for participation in an athletic or extracurricular activity. If a student has an early dismissal and decides to remain in the building, the student must remain in uniform.
Required Daily Dress

(This includes, but is not limited to rolling up skirts.)Skirts must be knee length. Skirts must be no shorter than the middle of the knee cap, and hems are not to be cut because they may need to be lengthened at a later time. If there is a height or weight issue, Lands End Uniform will be happy to special order a uniform to comply with the Saint Joseph Catholic High School policy.
