SJCHS UNIFORM POLICY
 

 

 At St. John Catholic High School, the uniform is a source of pride and a builder of  our community. Students who enroll at St. John Catholic High School do so with  a complete and full awareness of uniform requirements. Therefore, by choosing St.John Catholic High School, students and parents agree to abide by the   established School Uniform Policy.

 

 

 

 STUDENTS WHO FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE UNIFORM POLICY WILL NOT BE     PERMITTED IN CLASS AND PARENTS WILL BE NOTIFIED.  REPEAT UNIFORM   VIOLATIONS WILL RESULT IN SUSPENSIONS.

 

 

 

 The uniform is to be worn for the entirety of the full school day including lunch,   supervised study periods, and spares, in ALL areas of the school. Students are   required to wear the prescribed school uniform throughout the school year,   including examination days. Basic uniform items include:

 

 

 SHIRTS

 Golf Shirt, long or short sleeve;

 BOTTOMS

 Pants, Capris, Shorts, Kilt (shorts and kilts may not be rolled up at   the waist)

 SWEATERS

 Pullover, Half Zip Polo, Cardigan, Full-Zip Sweater.

 FOOTWEAR

 Open-toed shoes (e.g. sandals) may not be worn in some classes   due to safety concerns.

 

 
Students are expected to arrive to school in uniform and are to be in full uniform   at all times during the day.  Uniforms will be worn on all school trips unless otherwise   specified by school administration. Students are expected to display a neat and orderly   appearance.   All bottoms must be worn at the waist and clothing should be kept clean   and in good condition.  There is to be no alteration of the school uniform (including but   not restricted to pinning the backs of shirts, re-hemming/fitting of pants, rolling   up pant/short legs or kilts, etc.)  All uniform items are to be purchased from R.J.   McCarthy.
 
 
 
 If a student arrives out of uniform, the student will work in isolation for the day, and will   not be admitted to classes.  Parents/Guardians will be notified. Students not admitted to   class will be responsible for all work missed.  Students borrowing uniform pieces may   receive a detention.  Repeated infractions may result in suspension out of school.
 
 
 
 The principal or vice-principal will only grant temporary uniform exemptions for   extenuating circumstances. A medical note from a doctor must be provided clearly   outlining the need for the exemption. In the case of an exemption, students should be in   as much of the uniform as possible.  Appropriately coloured pants or shorts must be   worn in such a case(Jeans are not acceptable)
 
 Coats and jackets are not to be worn in the building during the day and are to be kept in   lockers. Only solid, plain white or black t-shirts can be worn under uniform shirts.   Graphics, scripts, or designs are not acceptable. Should a student wear a different   colour shirt underneath, he/she will be asked to change. A uniform shirt must be worn   under sweaters, vests, hoodies and half zip polos.
 
 Baseball caps, hats, any type of bandana, and other headwear are not permitted during   school hours and should be left at home. Students wearing headwear risk losing it for   the balance of the school day. Accessories must be in keeping with the spirit of the   uniform. The following are unacceptable:  large jewelry, wallet chains, studded belts,   collars, or bracelets, scarves, gloves (of any style), leg warmers, etc...
 
 The school uniform store stocks a number of uniform items for students to purchase.   Please consult the school website for the hours of operation.  Items can also be   purchased online at http://www.mccarthyuniforms.ca
 
 

SJCHS SPIRIT WEAR/CASUAL DRESS DAY ATTIRE

 Spirit Wear Days

 

 Most Fridays throughout the school year, students may substitute articles of Spirit Wear   clothing to be worn in conjunction with their uniform pieces. Spirit Wear pertains to   clothing purchased from various school clubs or sports teams reflecting the school   culture of SJCHS.

 

 Casual Dress Days:

 

 Student Council requests days throughout the year during which students may choose   to wear clothing other than the regular school uniform. Students and staff who choose   casual dress attire on these days will make a contribution (usually $2.00) to a   designated  \charity.

 

  On Casual Dress Days, students are expected to maintain respectful,           appropriate, and modest attire reflecting our positive school culture.
