Falcon Friday Attire
On an officially designated “Falcon Friday,” students may wear any Divine Child branded t-shirt, sweatshirt, or outerwear, with school-uniform bottoms and school shoes.
Guidelines for Out-of-Uniform Attire
Attire on out-of-uniform days must support the general standards of attire required in a professional environment. Clothing that is disruptive or creates a safety hazard is unacceptable. Students must refrain from wearing controversial clothing on out-of-uniform days or field trips. Students wearing inappropriate apparel will be sent home or not be allowed to attend the field trip or classes. The following are some examples of such dress and will not be permitted:
Crop tops, cut out, frayed, or any clothing revealing midriffs, half or full backs, or cleavage
Clothing with ads for alcohol, tobacco, drugs, or with profanity, sexual pictures, or inference to these items
Clothing with political messaging
Clothing designed to be transparent, mesh, or sheer when worn alone (including jeans with cutouts)
Yoga pants or leggings
Shorts (unless explicitly designated)
Technical fulfillment of the dress code with a sloppy appearance is not acceptable.
For the safety of our students, all visitors, once admitted to the building, are to report to the School Office. Parents must report to the school office before entering a classroom.
