St. Malachy Dress Code

Dress Code
St. Malachy School students wear uniforms and uphold a dress code to mark themselves as serious learners, as members of a community striving to be their best selves, and as persons of equality within the larger Christian community. These intentions, and a realization that our personal decisions impact the lives of others, guide decisions regarding dress code.

Students who are not meeting the uniform or dress code requirements will be asked to change their behavior in order to be in uniform and a letter will be sent home to let the parent/guardian know. If that change is not possible, a parent/guardian will be contacted in order to bring the change to school or pick the student up until the change can be made. If being out of uniform becomes a pattern, which is identified by three uniform violations in one month, we will schedule a parent/guardian meeting that must occur within one week so we can make a plan for uniform success.
