School Uniforms

St. Dunstan students in grades K – 8 are expected to conform to the uniform policy. The policy is intended to eliminate the distracting competition in dress, and to evidence a constructive spirit and pride in the school and each other. With the exception of non-uniform days, all students must wear the school uniform. Parent attention to uniform regulations is expected and appreciated so that valuable teaching time is not wasted on checking uniforms.

During school-sponsored field trips, students should be in school uniform as determined by the teacher. Students will not use visible, real or imitation body art including drawing or writing on self with markers or pens.

Revisions and/or changes may be made, as necessary, throughout the year for the well being of the entire parish school community. School parents’ support of this policy is of the utmost importance, and all families are asked to monitor their students’ uniform attire on a daily basis.

Students may not change clothes after school unless the student is going to track practice.

Complete uniforms must be worn to all school liturgies. The school sweater MUST be worn on Fridays.

The Uniform Policy will be strictly enforced. Students not in compliance will warrant the following consequences:

  1. First Violation The student will receive a Uniform Violation Form which requires a parent’s signature.
  2. Second Violation A 30-minute detention will be given.
  3. Third Violation The principal will call the student’s parents. A one hour detention will be given.
  4. Fourth Violation The student will be suspended for one day. Principal-parent conference.
