Shorts may be worn but they must be no shorter than 5 inches above the knee.

  • Those students who are in violation will be given the choice of changing into a uniform provided by SJCS or calling a parent to bring an appropriate item of clothing. The student may not go back to class until they are in compliance. If a student uses an SJCS supplied uniform and does not return it, a fee will be assessed for the replacement cost of the uniform.
