Uniforms will be worn starting Monday, August 27, 2018
While out of uniform August 21-24, students should adhere to the *SPECIAL DRESS DAY requirements. Special dress days for holidays, liturgies, or other special events should be viewed as dress-up days rather than dress-down days. Guidelines for special dress days direct that attire be appropriate for school. It is inappropriate to expose cleavage, mid-section, or hips. Ripped clothing, jeans, pajama pants, sweatpants, casual shorts, or spaghetti straps are not allowed. Dress shorts may be worn as long as they are fingertip length or longer. Leggings or yoga pants may not be worn as stand-alone pants, only as an accessory to a dress or skirt. Students who elect not to dress up must be in full proper uniform: skirt; blouse or polo; socks; shoes. 


Each class wears the same color kilt for two years. Freshmen and sophomores wear plaid patterns, juniors and seniors wear solid colors. All grades wear black sweaters (cardigan and v-neck) or lightweight fleece quarter-zips. Good news! Quarter-zips are returning to the Marlin Shop! 

Kilts, blouses, polos, and sweaters (cardigan and v-neck) must be purchased from Educational Outfitters.
