Dress Code

It is our conviction that the personal appearance of the students contributes to the general environment of study and good order.  The length of a boy's hair is not to reach the collar of his shirt and is to be neatly groomed.  Girls' hair is to be neatly groomed; head bands, barrettes, scrunchies, etc. are to be used to keep the hair in place.  All bangs are to be neatly trimmed and not cover the student's eyes.  Students are permitted to wear one pair of earrings (suggested size: dime size or smaller).  Make-up, visible tattoos, and/or hair coloring of any kind is strictly prohibited for all students.

Students usually go outside for recreation and should have proper outerwear to match predicted temperatures.

We anticipate that all parents will cooperate and support the dress code and regulations of Our Lady of Mercy School.
