Uniform Guidelines

Uniform Guidelines

Students must be in complete uniform daily. The uniform must be clean, neat, and in good condition. Please remember to check the length of your daughters skirts as they grow from year to year. Skirts/kilts shall be no shorter than three (3) inches above the knee. Holy Child students, while in uniform, both at school and off campus, should behave in an appropriate manner and remember that their actions reflect upon the school. Uniform items may not be worn separately as part of casual dress. Students not in complete uniform may be issued a demerit. Repeated uniform violations may result in detention and loss of uniform privileges such as participating in Tag Days. Please note that all uniform guidelines apply to both Middle and Upper School students.

Uniforms will be available for purchase starting August 20th. We will be selling the uniforms (skirts, polos, button downs, sweaters, socks, gym uniforms) out of the College Counseling Conference Room located to the right of the front desk in the main building. Below please find the dates and times of when we will be selling uniforms. Additionally, we will have a seamstress on hand on August 22nd and the 29th from 10 am until 2 pm. If you’d like to utilize our seamstress for the uniforms, it will be $35.00 to hem the skirts and $25.00 to take in or let out the waist. The turnaround will be 2-3 days.
