The School Commission, Parents Club, staff and principal have agreed that all students attending St. Vincent de Paul School are required to wear the school uniform. The school uniform is a symbol of a student’s pride in him/herself and the school; therefore, uniforms must be appropriately sized and must be appropriately worn. Every student is expected to be in complete uniform unless he/she has a valid, written excuse from his/her parents for that day only. Our uniform policy will be strictly enforced. Failure to adhere to the uniform policy will result in a uniform infraction slip.
