UNIFORM GUIDELINES 3EC/4K – 8th GENERAL STATEMENT
The purpose of the Holy Family Uniform guidelines is to establish a respectful, spiritual and quality environment that focuses on learning. Consistent apparel minimizes competition and comparison while holding down the cost of clothing children for school.
The parents are asked to support the school’s environment of learning by helping to enforce the uniform guidelines beginning at home. The uniform guidelines will be enforced at school. Teachers are expected to enforce all uniform guidelines.
A note will be sent home to the parent indicating what is not appropriate about the item(s) worn. This will give the family time to correct the uniform infraction. The detention system for the 6th – 8th grades will be used if the violation would occur again.
*** The uniform items (pants, shorts, skirts, shirts) can be purchased at the Uniform Place, Kiefer Uniform, and any department store that carries a uniform section of clothing such as Kohl’s, Sears, Walmart, Kid’s R Us, J.C.Penny, Land’s End. If clothing is not purchased in the uniform section of the department store, it must match the style and color found in the uniform section of the store.
