Dress Code

The dress code at Immaculate Conception School as defined herein is to be adhered at all times by all students. The administration and faculty reserve the right to make the final decision on the appropriateness of clothing and dress. Extremes in hair, hair accessories, clothing or accessories will not be permitted. Students may not wear or carry clothing, accessories, jewelry, or any other items that promote alcohol, tobacco, illicit drugs, violence, illicit organizations or anything inappropriate to a Catholic School environment, or has language, pictures, or symbols that are sexually explicit or which pertain to or can be interpreted as pertaining to any of the above. This applies during the school day and to all occasions when students are in school-sponsored activities or represent Immaculate Conception School. The purpose of the dress code is to promote our Catholic identity and to foster a uniform, respectful environment at school and discourage distractions from current fashion trends.
