Physical Education Uniform (Kindergarten-Eighth Grade)

All students K-8 wear PE uniforms purchased from Flynn and O'Hara.

In place of regular St. Louis shorts, the Junior High students may wear the navy walking shorts/navy fleece sweatshirts purchased from the uniform company. Shorts must be a modest length as determined by the PE teacher/administration. The students must wear the full PE uniform to PE class. When wearing sweatshirts, they must have the PE shirt underneath in the event that they get too warm or the sweatshirt gets wet. Boys should wear undershirts also.

Parents are responsible to check that P.E. uniforms fit correctly. Parents rarely see students wearing these items and may not realize how quickly they outgrow clothing, especially shorts. Shoelaces must be tied at all times.

 
Grooming

All students are required to be clean and groomed. Uniforms must be the correct size, clean and worn appropriately, (i.e. shirt tails tucked in at all times.) Some “blousing” is acceptable. Girls’ skirts must go to the knee. Only the top button may be open on any polo shirt. Only St. Louis sweaters are allowed with the uniform.

Mature young men must be clean shaven, no facial hair including sideburns below the bottom of the ears. Boys’ hair should be cut so that it does not cover the ears, eyebrows, or touch the collar. Hair must be its natural color and no trendy styles or appendages are allowed.

No nail polish or artificial nails are allowed. No jewelry is allowed except watches that are not set to beep. Religious items may be worn on regular length chains, not as chokers, or attached to costume jewelry. Only one set of earrings (stud-type), in the traditional lobe area, will be permitted for girls. Hair ties must be solid colors and must match the uniform colors or are accessories from Flynn and O’Hara. Barrettes and other head bands must be solid colors in brown, gold, silver, Flynn and O’Hara plaid, or match the uniform colors. No tattoos or body art is allowed.

No make-up of any kind is to be worn at any time by students in K-8. This includes lip-gloss and any artificial coloring regardless of the source. In the event of facial injury or major skin problems, the principal is open to discussing the need for cosmetic cover-up with parents.

 
Comfy Clothes Days

Certain casual wear options, currently on the market, are not conducive to the spirit of our comfy clothes days. If the above code is honored, individual classes, and the school may be granted these days more frequently. Slacks, capris, and jeans may be worn. Shorts may be worn during summer uniform times, but must be no more than one inch above the knee. Nothing derogatory is allowed to be worn on campus as deemed unacceptable by the school including T-shirts with inappropriate graphics. Clothing, including jeans, capris and shorts may not have holes, rips, or tears. No make-up is allowed on comfy clothes days. Also tight fitting clothes and extremely loose fitting clothes are not allowed.
