Dress Down Day Policy



On Tuesday, we will have a Dress-Down Day, which many other Catholic Schools utilize throughout the year.  Most schools link them to a fundraiser or cause, and we will link ours with the Academy’s general operating account, which will greatly appreciate the contributions. The cost to participate in Dress-Down Day is $2 and can be handed in to the teacher by hand or by envelope (similar to our pizza money routine).  If the day goes well, we will continue the days on a monthly basis.

All clothes must be modest and reflect the values expected at St. Adalbert Catholic Academy.  Students must be able to perform all regular school activities, including Gym, without changing or removing any parts, shoes, or clothing.  

SHIRTS/TOPS – Must have sleeves and no writing or symbols that are inappropriate for school.  No tight fitting tops are allowed.

PANTS – Jeans, athletic, or other dress/casual.  No holes or rips allowed. No tight fitting jeans or other pants (such as yoga) are  allowed.

SHOES – Shoes must have a back strap or closed heel.  Crocs, sandals, slippers, and high heels are not allowed.  

Classes with Gym must wear sneakers.  

Since we are having a pajama day during Catholic Schools week, please do not wear pajamas.   

If students come wearing something inappropriate, they will be sent to the office and a call home will be made for someone to bring appropriate attire.  

After reading the above, if you have any questions on whether something is appropriate or not, please feel free to ask Mr. Morris. We appreciate your understanding and participation.  

Important Reminders – School Uniform Policy and Severe Weather Wear

It has been both tradition and policy for students at St Adalbert’s to wear their uniform daily. In the past, on days forecasting severe weather conditions (significant snow and/or freezing temperatures), an exception was made, allowing students to wear their Gym uniforms. These exceptions will continue when warranted, and will be posted on the academy website when declared. However, even though snow is forecasted for tomorrow, the amount is not significant, and students should wear their regular uniforms (girls with Knee-hi’s or tights if they choose). Boots are always allowed in snow, just so the students bring their regular shoes to change into, as well.


Also, many students have begun to wear hooded sweatshirts, which do not fall under the uniform policy. If students choose to wear warmer clothing in the classroom, they have the option of the maroon fleece or uniform sweater. If a student’s hooded sweatshirt is his/her only clothing for arrival/dismissal and recess, it will be allowed to be worn outside. However, once inside the building and settled, the hooded sweatshirts are not to be worn. We are currently discussing the inclusion of monthly dress-down day fundraisers, which is practiced by many other private schools. Only on a dress-down day, would a hooded sweatshirt be acceptable attire. More information is to come.


Dress codes call for a greater standard of presentation and excellence to be held by all. As a college education professor once told my class, “You should dress in a way that will inspire your students to be.” A uniform policy instills a sense of professionalism in students, which creates a discipline that could greatly help them in their future endeavors. This is the way we want our students “to be”.


We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
