The staff and students of St. Paul Lutheran School are our best representatives.  We have supplied this Uniform Dress Code so that each of us will know what is expected in regard to appearance.  The uniform is designed with many variations, yet a common theme prevails. The staff at St. Paul Lutheran School will make every effort to enforce the dress code, but it is the responsibility of the students and their parents to make sure that the uniform is worn correctly (see Appendix A with regard to demerits for failure to comply with uniform guidelines). Uniforms must be clean and in good repair at all times.  Please note that the uniform requirement for Chapel is different from that for daily wear.

The Uniform Dress Code is presented to assist you in making choices and to insure our students represent our school in the best possible way.  By following a high standard of appearance (all shoes and uniforms must be clean and in good condition) we help create an environment conducive to excellence in behavior and performance. In addition, there is a gym uniform required for all Middle School students.

 

Note:  Non Uniform Day Passes MAY NOT be used on any Chapel days.
