Uniform Policy for the 2015-2016 School Year:

 

The school uniform is designed to ensure that neatness, modesty, and the St. Mary of Gostyn School identity are evident at all times. The intent of the uniform is to keep students’ appearance simple, modest, and free from the distraction and competitiveness of brand name comparisons. Another advantage of uniforms is they eliminate the hassle and costs of buying clothes.

The Parent-Student Handbook states: "all students are expected to wear dress shoes. Dress/school shoes must be made of a solid, one color sturdy suede (either blue, black, or brown) leather or leather-like with a non-marking soft sole. The sole may be crepe or leather. Acceptable shoes would be loafers or tie shoes. Gym or soccer style shoes are not acceptable. Heavy suede boot-type shoes are to be worn only during seasonal cold or increment weather. Fabric, patterned, or metallic shoes are not allowed.”

 

Other helpful reminders to take note of with the shoe policy are:

  1. Shoes must be a DRESS shoe.
  2. Many of the popular Sperry-type shoes will not be acceptable because they are not a SOLID color. The only acceptable shoe will be one that consists of only ONE color. The shoes that contain a contrasting color on the side or tongue of the shoe are not permissible. The only Sperry-type shoe that is acceptable is the style that is ONE solid color made of ONE type of leather or leather-like material.
  3. The popular moccasin shoe (that resembles a house slipper) will not be acceptable.
  4. Shoes manufactured by an athletic company (i.e. Nike, Reeboks, Puma, etc.) are not acceptable.
  5. The popular Skecher-type shoes are only acceptable if they consist of ONE SOLID COLOR and are a DRESS shoe. The soccer style shoe with a lighter or contrasting stripe will not be permissible.
  6. Shoes with ANY pattern are not acceptable (i.e. Coach shoes).
  7. Shoes that have embellishments (i.e. sparkles, glitter, and beading) are not permissible.
  8. As a general rule when shopping for shoes, if you question if the shoe will be acceptable, it is probably not acceptable. It will be in your best interest to choose a different shoe.

 

IN ADDITION:

  • Socks—all girls wear navy or white knee socks, or crew socks.
  • Boys wear navy socks that cover ankle
  • All clothes must be clean and fit properly with waistbands at waist; no baggy blouses and shirts.
  • Blouses and shirts must be tucked inside skirts and slacks.
  • Turtlenecks are not allowed.
  • Parents of Middle School girls will have to buy a new skort if the length of the current one is more than 2 inches above the middle of the kneecap.
  • Boys’ hair is to be clean, neat, tapered, and not hanging below middle ear or below the middle of the forehead. No fad haircuts are allowed. It is expected that everyone’s hair would be his/her natural color. Any headband embellishments must be less than 2”.
  • Shoes with more than 1½ heels are unacceptable, as are sandals, clogs, or backless shoes.
  • Wheelies are not allowed.
  • Boys may not wear earrings and girls may not wear dangling earrings.
  • Multiple wristbands are not allowed.
  • Only uniform slacks may be worn in school during cold weather; no sweatpants nor flannel-type pants maybe worn.

As each teacher’s priority is to educate your child, please make sure that he/she is dressed appropriately before leaving home so the teachers can focus on his/her lessons and not policing the uniform.
