Modest Dress

Warm weather has arrived.  Just a gentle reminder that here at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School, we encourage modesty in dress for both our girls and our boys.  Although tank tops are fashionable, they are not practical for student learning and play.  In general, we prefer that girls and boys wear t-shirts to school.  T-shirts provide good coverage from the sun and are practical for air-conditioned classrooms.  However, here are a few quick guidelines for tank tops, sundressses and shorts:
- wide strap tanks (no spaghetti straps) are a good fit
- skirts, dresses and shorts mid-thigh or longer
Remember also that proper footwear (running shoes) is best for outdoor play and running around, and that hats help to protect young children from the sun.  Any sunscreen must be applied at home before children leave for school.
If you have any concerns or would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact the office.
Thank you God for the beautiful weather.
