Dress Code

St. Rosalia Academy is a Catholic elementary school which maintains the right to establish a uniform dress code for its students.  It is recognized that proper school attire and good grooming are conducive to a student’s educational and social development.  This Dress Code was developed:

 

1.       To promote a Christian atmosphere

2.       To free children for academic concentration

3.       To de-emphasize competition among children regarding clothing

4.       To allow more economical dress for school

5.       To provide some choice to accommodate individual differences

 

This Dress Code is required of all students in grades Kindergarten through eighth grade.  This policy is intended to maintain a standard of dress that is neat, economical, modest and attractive.
