MOSS UNIFORM POLICY
The following is an updated uniform policy for the 2012-2013 school year at Mother of Sorrows School. By choosing to attend Mother of Sorrows School, you have made a serious commitment to Catholic education. We believe that the public image of our school stems directly from the appearance and conduct of our students, thus, parents and students accept the school uniform as an integral part of the school community life. We believe that the school uniform will:
- Enable students to focus on their school work;
- Instill a sense of discipline through school dress requirements;
- Reduce peer pressure over preferred forms and items of dress.
Though we recognize our individuality, the uniform at Mother of Sorrows School is part of what unites us as one community. There are two basic required uniform collections. Mother of Sorrows School has a traditional uniform policy that includes a
Dress Uniform and a selection of looks for the Everyday Uniform. Within the Everyday Uniform there is also the option of the Shorts Season Uniform. The Dress Uniform provides a tailored look that represents the student body in a very positive light in and out of the school community life. When students attend Mass, they are required to wear their Dress Uniform (Mass days are noted on the school calendar which is sent home in the take home Tuesday folders). The Dress Uniform may also be required for students attending off-campus field trips. Specific attire requirements for field trips will be given on the permission slip that will come home with the students. On any other normal school day, students may choose a more casual look from the Everyday Uniform collection.
Mother of Sorrows School offers parents opportunities to meet their children’s uniform needs during the year by way of the Log Cabin fitting dates. Used uniforms are also available in the school store open daily from 8:30-9:30 on the first floor. Log Cabin has our uniform policy as well as an understanding of what look we are seeking.
Occasionally, students will be granted the privilege of a "Dress-Down Day". On Dress-Down Days, students are given an opportunity to wear the clothing of their choosing. Students are sometimes asked to dress to a specific theme or color. In making that clothing choice, please keep in mind that all non-uniform clothing worn at the school or a school event that contains a message, picture, or logo, must present a positive image acceptable in the Catholic, Christian MOS Community.
