Uniform Policy

Students are expected to be in complete and proper uniform each school day. This is just one of the ways that both parents and the school teach students the importance of following school rules and developing responsibility in each child. Please see the Full Policy below for specific details and our rules regarding details and also our policy on compliance.  

Uniform Policy 2019-2020 PDF (Also, view the Quick-Reference Visual Guides below!)

Dress Uniforms are worn Wednesday-Friday, and the specifics are outlined in the policy above and can be seen in the guides below. New Dress Uniform pieces can be purchased at Flynn O'Hara by ordering online to ship to your home. Some items (girls' skirts and jumpers) can only be purchased through this store or found at our Used Uniform Swap in August (ask the Office about used uniform pieces!). Other pieces - dress shirts, polo shirts, belts, ties, socks, shoes, navy pants - can be purchased at any store (popular places to find uniform pieces are Target, Wal-Mart, Lands' End, French Toast, Amazon, JC Penney, Old Navy, The Children's Place) as long as they are of the specific kind (see the full policy for kinds of collars, # of buttons, no cargo pants, etc). NOTE! Pre-K 3/4 Students do not wear uniforms, but should be sent in sneakers every day. Kindergarten Students do wear uniforms, but can also wear sneakers any day of the week.

Gym Uniforms

St. John's School requires all students in grade K-8 to wear a gym uniform on gym days (Monday and Tuesday). The uniform consists only of a St. John's branded navy t-shirt, shorts, sweatpants and sweatshirt. Please note: The gym uniform cannot not include any "Spirit and Pride" clothingThese uniforms may only be purchased through the school and replacement clothing can be ordered at any time throughout the school year - just print the Gym Uniform Order Form below and bring in to the School Office with payment or look for a printed form outside the office.

Students must wear their gym uniforms on gym days, which are Monday and Tuesday. Students must wear their shorts under their sweatpants; this eliminates the need for changing which increases class time. Nov-March, the sweatshirt and sweatpants are mandatory due to the weather. The rest of the year, those 2 pieces are optional. Gym Sweatshirts can be worn over any uniform any day of the week, all year.
