Good grooming sets the tone for the general atmosphere of the school by keara


Good grooming sets the tone for the general atmosphere of the school. A student’s style of dress should create a wholesome and healthy attitude towards learning. SAINT GREGORY SHIRTS: All students are required to have a Saint Gregory shirt. Orders for these shirts are usually taken 2-3 times per year and can also be purchased from the T-Shirt Loft here in town. Students must wear their shirts on Mass days and for Field Trips and they must be visible and not hidden under another shirt. If extra warmth is needed then a long sleeve shirt may be worn underneath or a St. Gregory sweat shirt may be worn. Students in 7th and 8th grade must have a St. Gregory POLO shirt for the annual trip to Washington D.C. PHYSICAL EDUCATION: Students are permitted to wear solid dark blue or black sweat pants or gym pants (no tight fitting or noisy pants) with any uniform appropriate shirt. Tennis shoes are required on gym days. HOODIES: Students are not permitted to wear hoodies in school except for the St. Gregory hoodies. (This includes at lunch time and recess.) If students need extra warmth in the cafeteria or gym then a St. Gregory sweatshirt or hoodie or other uniform appropriate sweater or sweatshirt may be worn. PANTS: TOPS: solid colored dress pants solid colored or striped pull-overs, button shirts, polo shirts, turtlenecks, vests, sweaters or sweatshirts (NO HOODIES) St. Gregory shirts as well as shirts from school activities are permitted
(D.A.R.E., Challenge of Champions, Sporting events, etc.)

NO Under Armour, plaids, prints or writing on shirts NO tying shirts up or layering with skimpy shirts being visible SHORTS: SKIRTS: solid colored Dockers style walking shorts must be no shorter than 3“ above the knee when standing blue, black, gray, khaki or uniform plaid must be not shorter than 3” above the knee when standing the same applies to skorts, culottes, and jumpers Students should wear shoes that are comfortable and easy to move around in. Backless shoes, large platforms, skinny heels, flip flops, Crocs and Heely’s are not permitted. Boots are not permitted to be worn over the pants. No heel is allowed to be over 2” high. Tennis shoes are permitted any day but are required to be worn on gym days.


School uniform items can be purchased at most local stores or through There is also a uniform swap shop available at the school. Gently used uniform items can be purchased very inexpensively, and many items are no charge. It is your responsibility to see to it that your child comes to school dressed properly. If your child gets in trouble over the dress code, don’t blame the school. You are made aware of the dress code at the time of registration. If you don’t want your child to follow those guidelines, then you should find a new school for your child. We can not expect the children to learn to follow rules if we break them ourselves. Neither you nor your children need to worry about how anyone else is dressed or what is being done about it. That is my concern. If your child does not have clothes that fit the dress code and money is an issue for you, please contact the school office and I will work something out without ever revealing your name.
