Uniform and Dress Code

Uniform and Dress Code

Uniform Philosophy
St. Lucy’s students represent all members of the school community: administration, faculty, staff, the current student body, families, and all of St. Lucy’s alumnae and friends. The school and team sport uniforms students wear identify them as members of the St. Lucy’s community. Uniforms are worn daily unless specified by the administration. School uniforms must be purchased through Dennis Uniform Company. Wearing uniforms properly and with pride reflects positively on students and all of the St. Lucy’s community.

St. Lucy’s Priory High School seeks to maintain an atmosphere that is conducive to the highest quality of academic pursuit and conduct. Since the appearance of students contributes greatly to an attitude in school and the respect they earn in public, all students are expected to adhere to the following sections regarding uniform expectations.


Policy Enforcement
Parents are responsible to see that their daughter leaves home properly dressed and groomed for school and school-sponsored activities. Parents are to ensure that their daughter regularly follows conventional standards for personal hygiene. All members of the school community are expected to support compliance with the dress and grooming policy.

In all instances, the school reserves the right to regulate against unbecoming fads or fashions that reflect negatively on the person and/or school.

It is the right and responsibility of the faculty to enforce the dress code.

Parents are informed that students may serve detention for refusing to follow school policies. Parents may be called to bring proper clothing or students may be sent home if they do not comply with school policy.

Students and parents may monitor dress code infractions in the student’s individual Behavioral Log in TeacherEase. Students and parents will receive an email notification upon a dress code infraction.


GROOMING and CONDITION OF UNIFORM

Anything that could be considered excessive by way of skirt length, make-up, hairstyles, hair length, hair color, inappropriate or gaudy jewelry, fingernails, or lack of refinement in dress is indicative of poor taste for school wear.
