• Uniform Dress Code

    St. Charles maintains a dress code. Dress and grooming affect students’ attitudes and habits in school; therefore, students need to present themselves in a manner that does not offend the rules of decency or detract from the learning environment. The faculty and staff of St. Charles School reserve the right to determine whether a student’s attire meets the established guidelines for uniforms or "free dress" days. Please check your choice of clothing before leaving for school to ensure that it complies with the guidelines and is appropriate for a K-8 school environment. Students who are in violation of the guidelines will be asked to change into appropriate attire. Repeated infractions warrant further disciplinary action.
