St. Francis Xavier SCHOOL DRESS CODE GRADES K-8

Students may wear the "old" or the "new" St. Francis Xavier School logo/monogram on their school uniform polo shirts for the 2018-2019 school year.
They also may wear any color of non-marking shoes for gym class.

All students are expected to come to school and leave school properly dressed following our St. Francis Xavier School Dress Code. If your child does not comply with the school dress code, he/she will be issued a Dress Code Violation. Three Dress Code Violations will result in an after-school detention. In addition, a parent may be called upon to bring appropriate clothes in order for the student to return to class.

The school administration reserves the right to rule on final interpretation of any and all dress code categories.
