Dress Code

School Board policy states that the Dress Code is to be simple, neat and reflective of Christian values. The Dress Code should enhance education by providing fewer distractions in the classroom setting, as well as  eliminating some competition. The primary responsibility for enforcing the Dress Code rests with the parents, not the school. With this in mind, the following Dress Code is used at Our Lady of Sorrows School.
