  • Dress Code Violation

    Determination of whether a student is in compliance with the dress code is at the discretion of the teacher/school administration. The school administration is the ultimate authority regarding the uniform guidelines. Any item(s) not specifically addressed by these guidelines are at the discretion of the school administration. The administration may call parents/guardians to request that appropriate clothing be brought to school so the child may be in conformity with the school’s dress code. Failure to adhere to the uniform guidelines undermines the educational environment at St. John Vianney School.

    After several verbal warnings, a teacher may issue a written notification that is sent home to parents/guardians informing them of their child’s dress code violation(s). This notice must be signed and returned to the homeroom teacher. Repeat offenders (more than 3 notifications) will be required to complete one hour of community service as determined by School Administration.

    The following is an example Notification:
