Divine Mercy School adheres to a dress code in order to instill pride in one’s appearance, to help maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning, to lessen style-centered competition, and to de-emphasize materialistic values.
Any violation of the uniform policy will result in the student’s parent/guardian being notified and asked to bring uniform clothes to school. Students who are in violation of the dress code will result in non-participation in the next out-of-uniform day. A second violation of the code will result in non-participation for the remainder of the school years out of uniform days. If a student continues to violate the uniform policy, a parent meeting will be required to address the issue with the possibility of probation.
**Extremely short shorts/skirts/dresses (more than 2” above the knee), halter-tops, tank tops/spaghetti strap tops, shirts with rude or suggestive expressions, rock groups/singers, alcoholic labels, jeans with holes and frayed hems, are examples of inappropriate clothing. Students who wear inappropriate clothing on out-of-uniform days will be asked to call home immediately for a change of clothes and considered in violation of the uniform policy. **
Uniforms may be purchased at any major department store including, but not limited to:
Target, Walmart, Kohl’s, JCPenney & Old Navy
