School Uniform Policy

At Saint Michael, we take pride in our appearance.  Our enforced uniform policy leads to positive student behavior, school spirit, academic performance, and overall success.

School uniforms are to be purchased from Dennis Uniform.  Items purchased elsewhere are not considered “in uniform” and will not be allowed.Uniform checks will occur randomly throughout the school year.

Boys in grades K-8 wear black pants or walking shorts on days when it is 70 degrees or higher, an SMS polo, a dark belt, and white or black socks without a logo.

Girls in grades K-4 wear a plaid jumper, pants or walking shorts on days when it is 70 degrees or higher, a white blouse or blue polo, and white, black or navy tights or socks without a logo.

Girls in grades 5-8 wear a plaid skirt, pants or walking shorts on days when it is 70 degrees or higher, an SMS polo, and white, black or navy tights or socks without a logo.

All students may wear black, brown or navy dress shoes with less than a 2 in. heel, SMS sweaters, and grey, black or blue long sleeve ¼ zip or fleece with the SMS school logo.  Sports ¼ zips are not considered uniform and may only be worn on Spirit Days.

On gym days, students wear St. Michael gym sweatpants, gym shorts on days when it is 70 degrees or higher, gym sweatshirts, gym t-shirts, and Trot a Thon shirts. Sports, Homecoming or any other SMS shirts or shorts may not be worn on gym days and will be considered out of uniform.

 

Additionally, throughout the year SMS supports various causes, fundraisers, and holiday celebrations during which students are allowed to dress out of uniform:  Dress Down Days and Spirit Days.  So what’s the difference and what do we wear?  Here are the details you need to know for these special out-of-uniform days.

Dress Down Day
Why?
These special days are designated as out-of-uniform days in honor of a cause or holiday.  Children who choose to participate in these Dress Down days are asked to bring $1-2 donations toward a special cause.

What to Wear?
A themed shirt color will be assigned and can be worn with jeans or SMS gym shorts or gym sweatpants.

For example, Childhood Cancer Awareness Day

Spirit Day
Why?
We like to show our school spirit on special days like Homecoming, Service Days, Pep Rally, and more.

What to Wear?
Any SMS apparel that has our school logos or mascots:  SMS shirts, SMS shorts or SMS sweatpants. (Gym uniforms, basketball shorts, SMS sport team t-shirts, etc. are permitted.)

For example, Homecoming Spirit Day
***Leggings or spandex are never permitted.***
