Prince of Peace Catholic School
The importance of proper dress for Prince of Peace students cannot be overstressed. The dress code and the tradition it conveys demonstrate our commitment to quality Catholic education. It is an expression of unity that eliminates materialistic competition and creates a sense of belonging that strengthens our academic focus and discipline.
The primary responsibility for complying with the dress code lies with the parents/guardians. The administration reserves the right to determine appropriateness of attire in relation to the dress code in particular instances.
Please read carefully and adhere to the following regulations:
Physical Education: Students must wear a plain white t-shirt, plain black, navy or royal blue shorts (no stripes). All students will be required to wear tennis shoes for physical education classes.
Slacks: Students may wear only black, navy blue, tan or khaki dress or corduroy slacks. Students may wear modest Capri length pants. NO athletic style pants, cut offs, pajamas, or bibs are allowed.
Shorts, skorts, and skirts: Students may wear only black, navy blue, tan or khaki shorts, skorts, or skirts. The bottom hem should be three inches lower than the student’s fingertips when that person is standing and the arm is extended straight down. If there is a slit in the garment, the top of the slit will be considered the height of the bottom hem. Shorts or skorts may only be worn during August, September, October, April, and June.
Jumpers: Students may wear only black, navy blue, tan, khaki or school plaid jumpers. Jumper hems must follow skirt guidelines.
Shirts and Tops: Students may wear only solid color white, yellow, blue, gray or green short or long sleeved polo, oxford, or turtleneck shirts. Small manufactured symbols or insignias are allowed. All shirts must be tucked into the waistband and collars must be visible. No sleeveless tops are allowed. Modest necklines are required.
Sweaters and Sweatshirts: Students may wear sweaters, sweater vests, or non-hooded sweatshirts (right side out) of any solid color dress code color (white, yellow, blue, gray, or green). The collar of an approved shirt must show (and must be worn over any of the approved shirts) unless the sweater/non-hooded sweatshirt has a collar. Shirts under sweaters and sweatshirts must be tucked in.
Shoes: Students must wear tennis shoes, street shoes, or sandals with a closed heal or strap. No wheeled shoes or flip flop permitted.
Headwear: Scarves or hats are not appropriate dress code items.

Jeans and t-shirts when allowed must be clean, in good repair, and avoid unacceptable brand names, images and words. Only approved footwear is allowed and pajamas are not allowed.
