Please purchase the ¼-zip sweatshirt with emblem, hoodies for middle school, and dress uniform sweaters. Assumption athletics sweatshirts for middle school may also be worn.

Make-up, Jewelry, Hairstyle, and Accessories

Since we are focusing on the internal spirit of the student and not on the external, only clear nail polish may be worn.  NO OTHER COSMETICS. No perfume, cologne, after-shave or other scents.

Jewelry: Girls ONLY may wear tiny post earrings – one per ear.  A simple ring, small cross necklaces and plain watches are permitted.  NO OTHER JEWELRY.

Hair is to be clean, combed, not cover the eyes, and out of the face.  Extreme hairstyles and/or color/bleach are not permitted. Boy’s hair should be well groomed, above the eyebrows, ears showing, and above the collar. Note: Hair should be close to a similar length all around for boys (not a short buzz on the side and very long on top). Hairpieces are not allowed.  Headbands and ponytail holders need to coordinate with the uniform or hair.  Hats may be worn outside the school building. Bandanas are not allowed.

Girls – Headbands, plain (navy, red, white or uniform plaid)

           No embellishments (bows, flowers, ribbons, beads, etc.)

Athletic sweatshirts

If a sweatshirt is worn to school it must be 1/4-zip or one with the Assumption logo or Assumption logo fleece vest.  Middle school students may wear the Assumption Catholic School athletic sweatshirt. The athletic sweatshirt is pre-printed.  Do not put anything on the back unless it is the student’s Christian first name and/or last name—no nicknames. Only white lettering may be used. A school uniform shirt or blouse must be worn under the sweatshirt.  No shorts showing under skirts or jumpers. Shirts and blouses must be tucked in. Athletic sweatshirts may be worn on game days during that sport’s season.

Casual Uniform Days

Each student is to have a navy t-shirt with the school’s logo on it to be worn on Casual Uniform days. These can be purchased through Dennis Uniforms. The school days will be announced via the school newsletter and calendar.  On these days, blue jeans, shorts, or uniform pants may be worn. They must be modest and appropriate for school—no sweat pants or pajama-type clothing.  All other uniform expectations are in effect, including sweatshirt, sweater, and outerwear in the classroom.  The Casual Uniform may be required for field trip days if the regular uniform is cumbersome for the event. All Assumption athletic sweatshirts (volleyball, basketball, etc.) are allowed on these days.

Scout Uniforms

Scout uniforms may be worn on days designated by the pack or troop.  A schedule of these days is to be presented to the principal in September.

P.E. Clothes – READY To MOVE!

Hair is to be clean, combed, not cover the eyes, and out of the face.  Supportive, snug fitting athletic shoes are to be worn (no canvas Converse-type shoes; they do not offer the support needed for P.E.). Color is not an issue for gym shoes.

Middle School Physical Education
It is optional to change clothes and students are given 2 – 5 minutes for changing – students will be responsible to communicate that they are leaving the gym to change.  Students are responsible for not being late to the next class. Appropriate clothing for M.S. Physical Education includes: colored t-shirts, any style/color shorts mid-thigh length, sweat pants and sweat shirts may be worn in cold weather, no drug logos, obscenities or offensive prints.

Jackets

Jackets may be worn outside, but removed in the classroom. Students should only wear sweatshirts and sweaters with the school emblem. Jackets are the only exception and they should be marked with the student’s name.

Non-Uniform Days/Free Dress Days

The principal at his/her discretion will allow non-uniform days (“FREE DRESS”).  The Student Council, with the consent of the principal, sometimes selects special themes.  These non-uniform days will be announced in the weekly newsletter and usually on the monthly school calendar.  All shoes, make-up, jewelry, and hairstyle policies remain the same.

Non-Uniform/Free Dress Day Guidelines

  • Clothing must be modest and appropriate for school.
  • Clothing must be in good condition.
  • Neckline may not be lower than three finger-widths from the collar bone—including button placket.  No sleeveless shirts are to be worn to school.
  • Skirts must not be shorter than 2 inches above the knee. Walking shorts (just above the knee) may be worn on NON-UNIFORM days scheduled before September 30 and after March 1.
  • Nice jeans (not too tight, baggy, too long or hip huggers [low rider] pants).  Tight spandex or Lycra stretch pants are not appropriate for school wear or for P.E.  Logos depicting violence, rock groups, tobacco, alcohol, monsters, Satan, etc., are not acceptable.  “Fad” chains, buckles, zippers, and similar items are not acceptable. The rule of thumb is plain.
  • Make-up, jewelry, and hairstyle policies remain the same.
  • Snug fitting athletic shoes are to be worn at school (NO skateboard shoes, sandals, flip-flops, clogs, dress boots, wedge sole, slip on athletic shoes, or high heels).  If rain/snow boots are worn to school, regular shoes should be brought to change into for classroom wear.
  • No pajama-type clothing, no slippers, no boots, no Uggs, etc.

Dress Code for School Events

For school events, like the Christmas Program and others, modest and appropriate attire is required.  No make-up is allowed K-5. Middle School Exception: Girls can wear clear lip gloss. No high heels. Neckline should be no lower than three finger widths from the collar bone. No spaghetti straps. Boys should have a collared shirt, a belt, and shirt tucked in. When in doubt, check with the principal.

Expectations and Consequences

It is the responsibility of the parent and the child to see that the child is in uniform at all times.  “Out of Uniform” notices will be sent home to be signed by parents. Detention may be a consequence. Three “Out of Uniform” notices will result in a Behavior Report filed.  Chronic infractions may impact co-curricular eligibility. In an emergency, a note from the parent will excuse a student.
