DRESS CODE POLICY STUDENT DRESS Modesty is a virtue to be pursued at all times. Therefore, Trinity Academy encourages all students to live this virtue both inside and outside school hours and activities. As a temple of the Holy Spirit, you represent yourself, your family, Church, and school, and so it is important that you consider this virtue carefully and live it faithfully. Trinity Academy understands and promotes the maxim that external order produces internal order. Consequently, the following guidelines have been developed for creating an orderly environment for all students: • All students are to present themselves in a neat and clean manner at all times out of respect for themselves and others. • A uniform dress code violation slip will be sent home if the student is out of uniform. Three dress code violation slips will result in detention. Rectification of any dress code infraction will be required so as to maintain uniformity and consistency in the application of these directives. • Any school activity on or off campus requires that students remain in uniform according to the dress code. • Uniforms must be purchased from Dennis Uniform in order to maintain uniformity and consistency. Dennis Uniform provides durable, quality clothing that is made to last. • Only plain white t-shirts are allowed under uniform blouses and shirts.
