School Uniforms

Statement of Dress

A Trinity Catholic High student dresses in accordance with the dictates of good grooming, decency and modesty. The emphasis is on neatness with no extremes.

Any student not in compliance with the dress code may not be permitted to attend classes. Repeat offenses will result in additional sanctions. The school uniform is to be worn at all times during the school day.  "Legalistic" word games over interpretation will not be entertained.  The monetary value of attire is irrelevant with respect to dress code regulations and is not an excuse for circumventing the dress code.

Penalties/Sanctions
Students who elect not to conform to dress and grooming rules set forth by this policy will be subject to disciplinary and/or sanctions which may include detention, removal from class(es) or removal from school for the day.                        

The Administration will be the final arbiter of this policy.   

For All Students
Skirts, sweaters, polo shirts and fleeces are to be purchased from Dennis Uniform Company.
