Dress Policy

Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac Catholic High School believes that a student’s personal appearance has an impact on his or her attitude as well as behavior, and, therefore, the learning process. The school uniform is worn according to the guidelines, while on campus and while in the outside community when attending school related functions. Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac Catholic High School uniforms are supplied by Dennis Uniform and can be ordered online on the Dennis website. See the Dennis Uniform (www.dennisuniform.com) website for full details.

Casual Uniforms include any combinations of the offered shorts (black or khaki), polo shirts (black, wine or white in either of the fabric options), khaki skirt, offered jackets, or sweaters, Varsity sweater for men or women, white socks, with any closed toe shoe with a back (no open toe or backless shoes).

Non-Uniform Days

On selected days, students may dress in accordance with the specified school theme, all the while keeping in mind sound judgment with respect to the philosophy of Saint Jeanne de Lestonnac Catholic High School.

Students may not wear:

  • Attire with offensive logos (e.g. alcohol, tobacco, satanic symbols, or sexual innuendos); A good rule of thumb is – “When in doubt – change!”
  • Costumes that are obstructive, offensive (sexual, cross-dress, racist, stereotypical, staff impersonation) contain weapons of any sort, or are gruesome or violent
  • Masks that obstruct their vision
  • Oversized or baggie attire
  • Pants/jeans with holes, tears, or frayed edges, that sag (drop below the waistline) or that are tight
  • Revealing clothing (tank tops, crop tops, halter tops, strapless, off the shoulder, sheer, low-cut, or spaghetti strap shirts) or any shirt/top which does not provide coverage of the cleavage, midriff, and lower back at all times
  • Sandals
  • Shorts, skirts, dresses more than three inches above the top of the knee cap, including mini-skirts or mini dresses.

***If students come inappropriately dressed to school or school events, a detention will be administered and the student will be asked to change (even if that means calling home for appropriate clothes). The Administration reserves the right to deem dress inappropriate beyond those regulations outlined in this handbook. Dress for success!
