Uniforms

Uniform/Dress Code:

Holy Child Jesus Catholic Academy has a specific uniform which identifies a student as a member of our school community to the neighborhood.   It must be worn respectfully, neatly and spotlessly. Students must be in complete school uniform attire every day during school hours unless otherwise specified. Compliance with our school uniform regulations is an indication of parental support, cooperation and commitment to our educational mission. Uniform Notices will be issued to students for a first time offense who come to school wearing attire not in observance with our dress code.  A second offence will result in a referral.  A third offense will result in Dress Down privileges being revoked for the trimester, and the student will not qualify for honors.  Students who repeatedly come to school wearing attire not in observance with our Dress Code will be reflected on their report card for not complying with school regulations. Students will be detained in the office until a parent arrives to bring the proper uniform item or article of clothing. Regular and summer uniforms may NOT be mixed and matched.
