School Uniform Regulations 2017- 2018

The Saint Hilary School Uniform and Dress Code requires that students keep themselves well-groomed, modest, neat and clean. All students must be in uniform every day. If there is a time when the prescribed uniform cannot be worn, a note from the parent/guardian must be written to the Principal. Special Free Dress days will be announced during the course of the school year. (A dress code for such days is included in this section.)

Full Dress Uniform (required for 2017-2018)

Liturgy days and special occasions require more formal attire than regular school days. The following wardrobe items are required for these occasions:

  • Boys: Sweater, Long Pants, (Shorts are not permitted.)
  • Girls: Sweater, Plaid Jumper, Skirt or Skort.

Uniform Regulation Notes

  1. Boys’ and Girls’ pants must touch the top of the shoe in front and back and may not have worn or tattered hems
  2. Caps/Hats, neck or head scarves may be worn on the playground but not in the classroom or the gym.
  3. Jackets/vests may be worn in cold weather OVER the sweatshirt, but not in its place.
  4. Oversized or baggy shorts or pants are not permitted.
  5. Sweatshirts, coats and lunches must be clearly marked with the full name and grade of the student.

Free Dress Days Guidelines

On Special Occasions, Free Dress days will be allowed. Dress code regulations will be announced by the school for a special event. Often this will be a “spirit day” that the Student Council is sponsoring. Boys and girls can wear clean, presentable pants, jeans or t-shirts. No underwear may be visible. T-shirts must have sleeves and be of an appropriate size to the student. Shorts may be worn provided they are the length of walking shorts. Shoes must be appropriate for outdoor play.

Non-uniform dress is regarded as a privilege and therefore, students are expected to dress appropriately. Styles that are extreme, sloppy, or in poor taste are not allowed. The decision of the Principal as to what is acceptable for any student is final. Those students in violation will be asked to call home for acceptable dress or will be sent home.

Personal Grooming

  • Students are expected to be neat and clean. Hair must be neat and a natural color (not dyed, rinsed, highlighted, bleached, or streaked). Boys’ hair must be above the shirt collar in the back and no longer than the middle of the ear and forehead. No student may wear make-up to school. Only clear nail polish is permitted.
  • Jewelry guidelines: Girls may wear post earrings (one in each ear lobe only); dangling earrings are not permitted. Necklaces must be religious in nature. One watch may be worn. The only approved bracelets are the authentic “cause” bracelets, such as Live Strong, etc. No more than three “cause” bracelets may be worn. Ankle jewelry is not acceptable.

UNIFORM/PERSONAL GROOMING VIOLATIONS MAY RESULT IN A DETENTION.

DETENTION MAY RESULT IN REMOVAL FROM THE HONOR ROLL.

Purchasing the 2017-2018 School Uniform Program

Additionally, Saint Hilary hosts a free uniform exchange program. Families with students who have either graduated or outgrown their uniforms donate items in good condition so that others may use them. We simply ask that families leave what they can and take what they need. More specifics on the uniform exchange will be provided later in the school year. For school year 2017-2018, Saint Hilary families will be able to purchase school uniforms, including clothing with SHS logo, from Lands’ End. You can enter either the school name or SHS school code, 900153057

Saint Hilary will receive a percentage of all uniform purchases when you set up an account.

Additionally, it is acceptable to purchase basic uniform components from other vendors, including JC Penney, Dennis Uniforms, Gap, Target etc.

Please be sure to put your child’s name on all clothing, even jumpers and shirts/blouses. Help keep our Lost and Found box empty!
