students - dress code
St. Luke students wear a uniform in order to promote a feeling of equality for all children while discouraging the competition in dress. The uniform promotes an identity for the children of St. Luke School. Additionally uniforms are cost effective. The uniform should always be neat and in good repair. Parents and students both share in the responsibility for seeing that the dress code is appropriately observed and maintained.
GUIDELINE OF GOOD GROOMING
St. Luke students should dress in a manner that will contribute to a feeling of self-confidence. Parental approval, common sense and discretion are the primary guidelines. It is to be understood that the total look should be neat and should not detract from the uniform appearance. These guidelines also apply on non-uniform days.
ST. LUKE UNIFORM
The uniform is to be worn daily. Every attempt should be made to come to school in a clean, laundered uniform.
No over-sized shirts or blouses allowed; all shirts must be tucked in unless they fall mid hip or above. Students who must deviate from the uniform policy are requested to present a note to the teacher to obtain permission for the day.
Students who do not follow the uniform policy will lose their free dress privilege, their parents will be contacted, and the student may be sent home until they fulfill uniform requirements, or be asked to wear something from the lost and found box.
ALL GRADES WEAR FULL SCHOOL UNIFORM AT CHURCH SERVICES
Free dress is a privilege. Students may wear dress attire of their own choosing, but in keeping with suitable dress for school. Teachers may permit "free dress" for field trips. Free dress is only allowed on designated days at the discretion of the administration.
Excessively tight clothing, excessively baggy clothing, "sags", gang-related clothing or accessories are not allowed. Underwear cannot be visible. T-shirts may be worn, but they must fit and have appropriate messages and pictures on them. No cropped tops, tank tops or low cut tops are acceptable. Frayed jeans, cutoffs, spandex, bike and track shorts are also not acceptable. Jeggings and leggings may only be worn with a dress or tunic style shirt that must hit mid-thigh. Skirts and dresses must be no higher than 4 inches above the knee.
The rules for free dress will be enforced. Your child will be asked to change into uniform clothes that we have on hand, or call a parent to bring them appropriate uniform clothing. Free dress may be revoked for repeated offenses. The staff reserves the right to send a child home if clothing is not appropriate.
CUB/BOY/GIRL SCOUT/CAMPFIRE UNIFORMS MAY BE WORN ON THE DAY OF RESPECTIVE MEETINGS.
