The majority of students have been in complete uniform compliance for the first month of school, and we would like to thank these students and parents.  However, we are still experiencing some lingering uniform issues:

  • Girls are not allowed to roll shorts or skorts.
  • Boys and girls must wear appropriate belts and shirts must be tucked in at all times.
  • Only the uniform sweater or the fleece jacket or vest can be worn Mon.-Thurs.  No other pull-over or jacket (with the exception of lettermen’s jackets) are allowed Mon. – Thurs.
  • Freshman are not allowed to wear Dickies brand pants or shorts.

We have been giving students warnings up to this point, but starting today, Sept. 10, we will begin assigning after school detention for uniform violations and Saturday school for multiple violations.  We appreciate your cooperation in establishing a consistent uniform policy for Bishop Manogue.
