All Saints School strives for a Catholic/Christian atmosphere with high personal and academic standards. It is our belief that a uniform enhances student performance, decreases competition in dress, and is important to the overall discipline and spirit of the school.
Uniforms are required for all students of All Saints School. Full uniforms are to be worn from the first day of school until the end of the school year. Uniforms are to be worn, in an appropriate fashion, on school days, from 7:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Parent/guardians are asked to cooperate and take responsibility in seeing that their child/ren always wear only the regulation dress. Each child must be in complete uniform unless there is a day specifically designated as a non-uniform day. Scouts may wear their scout uniform on their meeting day.

All clothing should be of proper fit, should be neat and clean, and respectable looking at ALL times. No dress code can possibly cover all eventualities or possibilities and it should be understood that administration and faculty will have the final decision as to what is acceptable. If a student must be out of uniform for any reason, a note from the parent/guardian must be presented to the teacher before school on that day. The substitute dress should be as close as possible to the dress code, definitely NOT jeans or casual attire. Students not complying with the dress code will receive an out-of-uniform slip which explains the offense and carries definite consequences. This must be signed by a parent/guardian and returned to the homeroom teacher the following school day or the student will move to the next step of the consequences. As explained on the Out-Of-Uniform Slip, repeated offenses will be handled through the discipline code of the administration. (A sample of the slip with consequences follows the Dress Code section.)
SLACKS: must be navy blue twill only (no corduroys), plain or pleated uniform-type. Uniform-type is defined as inside pocket, both front and back, with zipper front (no outside stitched pockets or rivets). Slack legs must be worn the way they are manufactured.

For modesty reasons, it is recommended that shorts be worn under jumpers.

No dress code can possibly cover all eventualities or possibilities, and it should be understood that the principal will have the final decision as to what is acceptable and what is unacceptable.
N.B. A uniform check is held daily during the month of September to help students form good uniform habits early in the school year. After September, weekly checks will be held.
It is the responsibility of the student and the parent/guardian to remember the P.E. uniform on the appropriate day. All students in grades 5-8 are required to dress out for P.E. classes. Grade K-8 are required to wear tennis shoes. Dressing out for grades K-4 is optional, but not required. If wearing jumper, girls must wear shorts under the jumper. Dressing out for Grades 5-8 is part of the PE grade.
Gym Shorts: Gym shorts can be any colored athletic style short. This includes the All Saints sport short sold through the All Saints Athletic Association. For winter, students may wear any colored sweatpants. This includes the Spiritwear sold through the All Saints Athletic Association.

Shoes: Tennis shoes with non-marking soles must be worn. Shoes must be tied at all times.
Certain days during the school year will be designated as “Casual Uniform Day”. On these days, students may choose to wear the official casual tee shirt with UNIFORM SHORTS, UNIFORM LONG PANTS, UNIFORM SKORT, LONG DRESS JEAN PANTS, LONG KHAKI PANTS, KHAKI SHORTS, OR CAPRIS. Long sleeved white t-shirts without writing can be worn under the casual day shirt. All other uniform rules will apply. Students who choose NOT to wear the casual uniform will be expected to wear their regular school uniform.
Students will be required to wear the “casual uniform” for school field trips with shirts tucked in and belt worn unless otherwise specified on the field trip permission form. Sweatshirts are not to be worn over casual day shirts unless specified on field trip permission form. This helps to make our students more easily identifiable in a crowd and will increase the safety of our students.
