Carminati_DressCode Sample_5143_webCarminati School Uniform Policy

(in effect January 3, 2011)

Uniforms contribute to Carminati School’s sense of pride and distinction. The students look well groomed and the uniform-look gives an outward sign of being a community. Wearing uniforms shows equality of all students at Carminati by de-emphasizing economic differences. Uniforms also lessen peer pressure and enhance self-esteem. They promote a focus on the development of the “inside” of the students rather than the externals and what the students are wearing. Clothes do not become a distraction. Uniforms are practical, durable, and economical. The emphasis for students coming to school is to prepare their minds for learning. Each student is required to own a uniform in good clean condition and is expected to wear it at all times except on designated non-uniform days. Whenever specific clarification is necessary, the principal will make the final determination.

Students who must deviate from the uniform policy are requested to present a note to the teacher. If a student arrives at school without a proper uniform they will receive a phone call home for a change of clothes and/ or receive a Uniform Infraction. A student who has three Uniform Infractions will be subject to disciplinary action.
