School Uniform Policy

Our Lady of Grace Catholic School recognizes that proper school attire and good grooming are conducive to a student’s education and social development. A Uniform Dress Code is developed to:
• Promote a Christian atmosphere.
• Free children for academic concentration.
• De-emphasize competition among children regarding clothing.
• Allow more economical dress for school.
• Provide some choice to accommodate individual differences.
