Acceptable Dress Code

In comparison with other schools, both public and independent, acceptable dress at St. Nicholas is very flexible and places the responsibility for making proper choices upon the individual and the family.  Goals are to teach neatness, cleanliness, appropriate decision-making, and awareness of self-presentation.  The emphasis is on neat, comfortable, appropriate attire. Obviously, any statement about apparel cannot cover the hundreds of possibilities. Please remember – we are trying to teach neatness, cleanliness, appropriate choice-making and awareness of self-presentation. 

No statement about apparel can cover the hundreds of possibilities.  The school reserves the right to determine if any fashion statements are distracting and/or inappropriate.  Please do not put teachers in the position of having to be “Clothing Police.” Please assist by honoring the spirit of acceptable dress suggestions. 

ALL STUDENTS MUST HAVE A ST. NICHOLAS “FIELD TRIP” KNIT SHIRT (May be purchased at registration or in the office.)
