Dress Code and Uniforms

In order to maintain a safe environment for all students where learning and instruction can be maximized, St. Nicholas Catholic School adheres to a Dress Code & Uniform policy.

Students not adhering to the Dress Code and Uniform Policy will be issued infractions:

  • 1st Infraction – First note sent home from teacher who saw the infraction. Note must be returned signed by parent or guardian.
  • 2nd Infraction – Last note sent home from teacher who was the infraction. Note must be returned signed by parent or guardian.
  • 3rd Infraction – Parent will be called for change of clothes.

The Dress Code may be changed or modified by the Principal only.

If you have any questions about the Uniform policy, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.

Skirts, Shorts, and Skorts

Shorts may be worn from September – October 31 and from April 15 – June.  Please keep in mind that skirts, shorts, and skorts should be no more that 3” above the knee.

Dress-Down Days

On special occasions throughout the school year, notifications will be sent to school families informing you and your students of Casual Days, or Dress-Down Days. These are days when students can wear their athletic uniform shirts/jerseys or any other school-appropriate attire. Tennis Shoes are required, even on Dress-Down Days.

Drop & Shop

As a service to our school families, the St. Nicholas Home & School Association offers a “Drop and Shop” uniform “store” of used and approved uniform clothing at the beginning of each school year. Families are asked to donate their used uniform clothing that is in great condition to the “Drop and Shop” inventory. Anyone is welcome to take anything from the Drop and Shop for free. Donations are accepted to help fund other activities hosted by the Home & School Association.

Peanut & Tree Nut Allergy

For some students, exposure (even airborne) to peanuts or tree nuts can cause them to not be able to breathe and lose conscientiousness. It is imperative we maintain a safe environment for ALL of our students. To do this, we are requiring that any food brought into the school building not contain peanuts or tree nuts OR be manufactured in a facility that may expose the food product to peanuts or tree nuts. This includes any snacks brought into the Pre-K3 classroom and at lunch. If you are looking for ideas for snacks or food items that MEET our Peanut & Tree Nut Allergy policy, we please review the Peanut & Tree Nut Allergy Snack Guide. Thank you for your help in keeping all of our students safe and healthy.
