UNIFORM / DRESS CODE

The following is an outline of the Our Lady of Mount Carmel School uniform. Any questions regarding the interpretation of the uniform policy are to be directed to the principal. Students who do not come to school in full uniform are to have a note from a parent or guardian, and should wear clothes that are as close to uniform as possible. This is acceptable only in an extraordinary circumstance. Additional regulations may become necessary as need arises.  All uniforms must be purchased through Dennis Uniform.
