Dress Code

The purpose of uniforms is to develop a greater sense of school community, reduce long-term cost to families, and to minimize distractions so that an atmosphere conducive to learning is fostered. The Saint Ann School uniform must be worn at all times throughout the school year, beginning the first day of school, unless otherwise announced. Shirts are required to be tucked into shorts, pants, or skirts at all times while on campus, with the exception of recess and Health class.

To further help with the cost to our families, the HSA typically organizes a used uniform sale at the end of each school year allowing families the opportunity to sell their gently-used uniforms to other Saint Ann School families at much reduced costs in preparation for the following school year.

NOTE: Some uniform decisions will be made at the discretion of the principal.
