Dear St. Mary’s Parents,
Happy November! I hope everyone had a safe and festive Halloween yesterday and that you have a cozy and warm evening at home tonight. It’s hard to believe that it is already November 1st, and that winter dress code goes into effect today. Please review pages 10-12 of your Parent and Student Handbook if you have any questions about winter dress code, or if you need a refresher on what changes occur when transitioning from fall to winter dress code. A few highlights of what changes occur starting today:
· Shorts may no longer be worn to school. Shorts may only be worn to school from March 1st until October 31st.
· Girls may no longer wear ankle-length socks with their skirts, skorts, or jumpers. Girls may wear knee-high socks and tights with skirts, skorts, and/or jumpers. Girls may wear leggings if they are worn as an additional layer like tights, not as pants. The leggings must follow the same guidelines as sock and tights. Leggings must be worn in solid colors of white, khaki, or navy blue. They must also be plain, with no patterns, emblems, shapes, or logos.
· JACS (or St. Mary’s) sweatshirts must be worn over a uniform shirt except on casual dress days or on Mondays. The collar of the shirt must be seen. Sweatshirts may not be worn to Mass.
· JACS (or St. Mary’s) hoodies are allowed to be worn in school, but must be worn over a uniform shirt except on casual dress days. Hoodies may not be worn to Mass. All other hoodies, jackets, and coats may only be worn outside.
Please read through the dress code guidelines for additional information about St. Mary’s dress code. Early Childhood students (preschool and Pre-Kindergarten) do not follow dress code guidelines, but should dress accordingly to the season. As always, if you have any questions, please contact the school office for additional information.
Take care and God bless,
