UNIFORMS

We believe that the conduct of each student at Holy Names must be motivated by a basic self-respect, a respect for others, and a respect for the school. A student's care with regard to her personal appearance and with regard to the proper wearing of the school uniform is indeed a sign of respect and of her cooperation as a member of the school community. The school reserves the right to exercise appropriate disciplinary action in response to any student whose appearance continually indicates a lack of respect for herself or others.

1.    Uniforms are worn from the first full day of classes until the final day of examinations.
2.    Students are in uniform from the time they enter school grounds until the time they leave school grounds unless they must change for an after-school sport or another activity which would result in the soiling of clothes. Students are expected to be in uniform for morning homeroom as well as at all other times of the school day. 
3.    If a student is missing any part of the uniform, the student must have a note from home explaining the reason for the situation.
4.    A student who must wear alternative footwear due to injury must present to the Dean of Student Life or her delegate a medical excuse which clearly indicates the length of time that the alternative footwear will be required. It is expected the alternative footwear during this time period will be approved athletic footwear.
5.    Non-uniform days occur throughout the year for a variety of reasons. Students will receive notification of appropriate dress for non-uniform days in advance. The dress on such days varies accordingly.
•    Classification A: Dressy attire, including skirt/dress pants and blouse sweater or dress 
•    Classification B: Casual attire, including jeans, khakis, skirts, tee shirts, sweatshirts, and sweaters. Shorts or rompers may not be worn. 

Students who are "out of uniform" will be assigned to detention. Repeated violations will result in suspension. "Out of uniform" means that the student is

•    missing part of her uniform
•    wearing an item of clothing that is not part of the uniform
•    changing into or out of her uniform on school grounds without permission
•    wearing unusual or excessive adornments
•    wearing a uniform item that has been defaced
•    wearing a uniform item improperly
•    dressed inappropriately on a non-uniform day

Notes on the term "out of uniform"

1.    "Missing part of her uniform" means arriving without a necessary uniform piece, for example socks, polo shirt, turtleneck.
2.    "Wearing an item of clothing that is not part of the uniform" means wearing additional non-uniform clothing, such as tee shirts under the uniform shirt or sweatshirts over the uniform shirt, or substituting non-uniform clothing for the uniform, for example, running shoes for the school shoe.
3.    "Wearing unusual or excessive adornments" refers to items such as body piercing, tattoos, excessive jewelry, or writing on the body.
4.    "Wearing a uniform item that has been defaced" refers to wearing uniform items that have been, for example, written on, torn, ripped, painted on.
5.    "Wearing a uniform item improperly" means wearing uniform items in unusual ways, for example, sweaters worn inside out, socks worn halfway inside of shoes, shoes with the backs bent down.
