Uniforms

All students of St. John the Baptist Catholic School are required to wear the school uniform during the school day. Parents are responsible for assuring their child(ren) is/are appropriately dressed. Occasionally students are exempt from the dress code because of an out-of-uniform day, Spirit Wear day, or because they have received out-of-uniform passes. Dress Code infractions will result in detention after a first written warning. Administration reserves the right to have students remove or cover clothing and accessories deemed distracting to the educational process.
