Uniforms and Dress Code

1240 W. Whittier Blvd. , La Habra, Ca.


            All students must be in uniform every day.  There will be out-of-uniform days, which will be announced during the course of the school year (a dress code for such days is included in this section).  If there is a time when the prescribed uniform cannot for some legitimate reason be worn, a note from the parent/guardian must be written to the Principal.  Students who are out of uniform without this excuse will be sent to the office and the parent will be called to bring the proper clothing.          


Good Rule:  If you think you shouldn’t wear it, you shouldn’t.





Dress Code, Grooming and Uniform Policies:


            The primary purpose of this code is to assure that each and every student at St. Angela’s is neat, clean and well groomed.  Students who are not dressed in accordance with the uniform policy will be in violation of the school dress code.  It will be necessary for the administration to take appropriate action.  Complete uniform will be required the entire year.  IT IS THE PARENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO SEE THAT EACH STUDENT IS NEAT, CLEAN, WELL-GROOMED AND DRESSED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS CODE FROM SEPTEMBER THROUGH JUNE.  Uniform shirts (including spirit shirts) are to be tucked in at all times.  The Principal and Vice Principal will oversee the dress code policy.  All staff is responsible to take note of students out of uniform.  In all instances, St. Angela Merici Parish School reserves
the right to regulate against unbecoming fads or fashion trends that reflect negatively upon the student (s) and the school.
