NEWS & UPDATES
MAKE-UP DAYS
Make up days from the snow storm will be announced as soon as possible. 



MAKE-UP JANUARY TAG DAY
This Friday, January 12th will be the make-up tag day for January 5th.  

Students are allowed to wear non-uniform clothing in place of their uniform for a fee of 50 cents or $5.00 for the entire year. All monies collected for Tag Day are donated to a charitable organization. 

As a Catholic community, our attire should reflect modesty. 

Examples of inappropriate clothing are, but are not limited to:
  • Tops which are sleeveless, which do not cover the entire shoulder, or which have spaghetti straps 
  • Backless shirts/dresses that cover less than a uniform shirt 
  • Pajama tops or bottoms 
  • Leggings, jeggings, yoga pants 
  • Pants, shorts, and tops that are too tight; clothing should be loose fitting 
  • Skinny jeans 
  • Baggy styles are not permitted 
  • Shirts with a low scooped neckline 
  • Shirts not long enough to cover the waist and hips. When the shirt is tucked in and arms are raised above the head, the shirt should not come untucked. 
  • Shirts with inappropriate logos/pictures 
  • Skirts or shorts not knee length. *Knee length is defined by the hem of the skirt touching the CREASE AT THE BACK OF THE KNEE. 
  • Shoes with high heels, open backs or toes, sandals, Crocs 
  • Nail polish, makeup, or excessive jewelry
If students wear clothing deemed inappropriate, they will be told to call home for a change of clothing. Students having to change will lose their Tag Day privilege for the following month. A second TAG Day infraction will cause students to lose this privilege for the remainder of the year.
