Uniform Policy 2019-2020

Below is the uniform requirements for K-8 grade students. Pre-school students are not required to wear a uniform.

Uniforms

Holy Angels as a private, Catholic elementary school offering an academic programming of studies maintains a formal dress code in keeping with its definition and character. The formal dress code contributes to the seriousness of purpose and to a positive learning environment. The school expects the full support of parents and guardians in implementing all aspects of the dress code. Therefore, students will be required to be in uniform every day to attend classes unless the principal authorizes an exception. Uniform Inspection Days will be scheduled throughout the year and conducted by the principal and assistant principal.

Students who are not in uniform or have no reasonable excuse written by a parent/physician will be given a uniform violation. Students who are in violation of any aspect of the dress and grooming code of the school will receive a uniform violation slip. Habitual uniform violations will result in more severe disciplinary actions.
