Uniform Policy

POLICY ON STUDENT LIFE

I. UNIFORMS

At Holy Trinity School, there is a mandatory school uniform. The reason for such a policy is the following: respect for both the individual and school is manifested by a mind-set of “dressing up” for school. Therefore, the dress code has an impact on a student’s attitude as well as their behavior. A neat, personal appearance reflects a positive image of our school to the community. It also helps to reduce differences among children in regard to fashion. The Holy Trinity dress code is based on modesty, neatness, cleanliness and safety. Families are responsible for keeping their child’s uniform neat and clean in appearance. If clothes get torn or stained, they must be repaired or replaced.

Students attending Holy Trinity School are expected and required to wear the school uniform to school, while at school, and when going home from school each day. The only time it is acceptable for a student not to adhere to the above is if they have gym during either the first period or last period of the day, when they may then wear their gym strip either to or from school. Students are expected to look clean and neat, as outward appearance reflects the school’s image to the community.
