UNIFORM

DRESS CODE

The primary purpose for the school uniform and grooming standards is to insure that each and every student at St. John the Evangelist Catholic School presents a picture of neatness and cleanliness consistent with the belief that our bodies are a gift from God to be cherished and respected. Parents are expected to cooperate with the school by having their children adhere to the uniform guidelines. The dress code is to be observed on field trips unless otherwise announced by the Administration. Therefore, every student is expected to live up to these guidelines.
