A principal goal of Bishop McNamara Catholic School is to develop in the student a respect for self and others, pride in one’s appearance, and good conduct. These qualities aid in establishing a proper learning environment. To help develop these traits, Bishop McNamara Catholic School has adopted a dress code policy which is considerate of our aim to promote a feeling of equality for all while discouraging competition in dress. A respectful dress code helps promote a safe and appropriate learning environment free from distractions, while contributing to students’ preparation for success beyond adolescence.
This change in the school allows us to have a fresh start with our school uniforms. A committee was established consisting of current parents, staff and teachers from the three elementary schools and the high school. During the committee meetings, there was commitment to several factors and priorities:
The uniform guidelines apply to students in grades K - 12.
Preschool students will not wear uniforms for the 2017-18 school year.
