Uniform guideline 

The appearance of any young person is primarily the responsibility of that individual and his/her parents. We expect students to maintain the type of neatness and grooming that does not interfere with the health and safety of themselves of others and does not interfere with the educational process or religious dimension of the school. Each  student in grades Pre-K – 8 is expected to be in a clean and complete uniform each day. Parents are asked to support all uniform policies and to see that the children come properly dressed to school each day. The school uniform, be it the summer, winter, or gym uniform, is to be worn with pride.

Full uniform includes having shirts and blouses tucked in at all times so that the belt can be seen, and pants, skirts, and skorts worn correctly at the waist.

School uniforms must be purchased from Dennis School Uniforms located at 1110C North Rolling Road, Catonsville, MD 21228 (410) 869-4682, or online at www.Dennisuniform.com.

Students in Pre-K – 8 are required to wear the Our Lady of Victory uniform beginning on the first day of school.

UNIFORM SPECIFICS

1. Students are expected to remain in full compliance with uniform policy from the time they leave their car in the morning until they get into their car in the afternoon. Mark all clothing clearly with the child’s name.

2. Any form of make-up is not permitted. Nail polish must be clear. Any form of artificial nails is prohibited without the written consent of the administration. Students will be asked to have such nails removed if in violation of this rule.

3. SHOES: Students may wear Bucs or the Sperry’s as defined with Dennis Uniform for regular uniform days. Gym shoes are to be primarily white or primarily black. Shoelaces must be tied at all times for regular and gym uniform shoes. Consequences will be issued if non-OLV shoes are worn.

4. Earrings for boys are not permitted. Girls may wear post earrings only. For safety reasons, hoops or dangling earrings may not be worn. Body piercings are strictly prohibited. No bracelets are permitted.

5. Jewelry is not permitted with the exception of a ring (one per hand), watch, and religious medal.

6. Plain white undershirt may be worn under the uniform. Undergarments or t-shirts of any other color are not allowed.
All undergarments must be concealed at all times.

7. Long-sleeved shirts and blouses are to be extended and buttoned.

8. Hair must be neat, clean, and well-groomed. Extreme hair styles and any coloring are not permitted for boys or girls at any point during the school year. The school reserves the right to determine what constitutes an “extreme” style. Boys’ hair must not touch the shirt collar, cover the ears, or hang below the eyebrows. It is strongly advised to contact the administration prior to making appointment for a new haircut or re-styling in order to avoid additional expenses. Designs cut into a hairstyle are not permitted.

9. Sunglasses and hats are not to be worn in the building.  Hoods on sweatshirts need to be lowered on entering the
building.

10. All uniform components must be worn appropriately. Office referrals will be issued to students who violate any of these rules. Office referrals are to be signed by a parent or guardian and returned to the issuing teacher the next day. A second violation will result in a detention, as will failure to sign and return the infraction.  

These specifics are a sample of our uniform expectations. They cannot possibly cover every area. The administration will remain the final judge of  appropriate clothing and appearance and their decision will be final. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

DRESS CODE FOR NON-UNIFORM DAYS:

On special occasions throughout the year students in grades Pre-K - 8 will be invited to dress out of uniform. Students are reminded not to abuse the privilege. As always, a neat, clean appearance is required. All clothing should be appropriate and in keeping with the Christian dimension of our school, so as not to interfere with the educational process. Parents are asked to support our uniform and non-uniform day dress codes and to help the students make good choices.

The following is a partial list of inappropriate dress. This list is not meant to be complete as other styles of dress may also be inappropriate:
Bare midriffs
Halter and tube tops
Tank tops
Low cut tops
Tightly fitted or revealing clothing
Short shorts or extremely short skirts (in the opinion of the administration)
Flip flops
Hats in the building
Earrings for boys
Hoops or dangling earrings for girls
Sunglasses
Exposed undergarments
Torn or ripped clothing, including jeans

Any article of clothing or personal items with artwork or messages that are considered suggestive, profane,  discriminatory, or inappropriate for an OLV student may not be worn. When in doubt, do not wear it to school. Students wearing inappropriate clothing, in the opinion of the administration, will not be permitted to attend classes until that clothing has been changed. Parents will be notified in this event.  

DRESS CODE FOR OLV SPIRIT DAYS

OLV Spirit wear may be worn on Fridays during the school year. The following items only may be worn instead of the normal school uniform.
• OLV Blue and Gold spiritwear
• OLV gym uniform
• OLV athletic team jerseys
• OLV clubwear
• “Faith in the Flakes” Shirts
This is not to be confused with an out-of-uniform day, and all other uniform policies remain in effect, including shoes. Regular uniform pants or shorts must be worn. Should a student not wish to participate, their regular school uniform should be worn.
