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 2018-2019 (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 in Amherst or ordered online to ship to your home, to be picked up in store or delivered to pick up at our school. Some items (girls' skirts and jumpers) can only be purchased at this store or found at our Used Uniform Swap in August. 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 are worn Monday-Tuesday, and the pieces can only be ordered through the school or Flynn O'Hara (see below for info!).

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 navy t-shirt, shorts, sweatpants and sweatshirt. The gym uniform does not include any Spirit and Pride clothing. These 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.

Used Uniform Swap
The annual Used Uniform Swap is held in August at our annual Welcome Back Picnic! This is a cost-effective way to trade in your good condition uniform pieces for larger sizes for your growing kids! New families can look for pieces without a trade-in; come and see what we have before you shop! A representative from Flynn O'Hara will be on hand for sizing, questions and orders for new uniforms if needed.
