Uniform Policy

 

Proper grooming and attire reflects positively on the individual student and the school as a whole.  Students are expected to meet a common standard of dress so that they may focus on learning. When students come to school in uniform, it should be of the proper size, clean, pressed and in good repair. The families of SJUS students agree to assist and help enforce the uniform policy with their children. Specific reguations for girls and boys at each grade level are available upon request from the school office (716-835-7395)
