UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS

 

 

Pride in one’s appearance is considered, by Teurlings Catholic High School, to be an essential mark of a mature person.  It is expected, therefore, that each student will reflect that pride by consistently manifesting a respectable and appropriate appearance in matters of personal hygiene and dress.  In order to fulfill the objectives stated in the school philosophy, particularly with regard to promoting those skills and graces needed to act responsibly and successfully in adult society, the school has established a code of dress and appearance conducive to a serious scholastic and values-oriented environment.

 

The required uniform items for males and females must be purchased from Young Fashions, Linda’s School Time, or Fashion World. Any violation of the following uniform requirements will result in after school detention, and repeat infractions could result in Saturday School or Suspension.

 

 

 

 

General Requirements for Boys and Girls

 

•   Students are NOT allowed to wear any jacket or sweatshirt without a TCH crest or logo on it and all uniform items must be from one of our uniform vendors. 
•   Pants or slacks may not be rolled, cuffed, or split. Pants may not be worn on the hips.
•   School shirts must be tucked in at all times during the day and must be worn under all outerwear.
•   Baseball caps and hats are not allowed during the school day.  Knit caps are allowed outside only during cold weather.
•   On mass days, shorts are NOT allowed.   Shorts are allowed on days of prayer service.
•   Only plain white undershirts can be worn under the school shirt, without any writing on them. 

 

 

 

Grooming

•  No extreme or distracting hairstyles or colors will be allowed for both boys and girls.  This includes hair of two different colors, hair of an unnatural color, extremely spiked hair, or hair that is shaven underneath. 
•  Boys’ bangs must not be longer than the top of the eyebrows and the back must not be longer than the collar, or over the ears. Hair may not be held in place with the aid of the ears. Hair must be of a moderate length.   Males must be clean-shaven each day, with sideburns no longer than the ear lobe.
•  The assistant principal of discipline will determine what is extreme, distracting, or inappropriate for Teurlings Catholic High School.

 

 

Jewelry

•   A student may wear one necklace only, with or without a religious medal.  Multiple necklaces are not allowed.
•   Girls may wear one set of earrings (post style) at school and school functions.  No hoops/dangling earrings. Boys are not allowed to wear earrings at school or any school functions.  Band-Aids will not be allowed to cover up a piercing.
•   Body piercings that are visible are not allowed, i.e., tongue, lip, nose, etc.
•   Tattoos that are visible are not allowed. 



Physical Education Uniforms

P.E. uniforms are required and may be purchased from Teurlings Catholic Physical Education Department. The student’s P.E. instructor will explain proper P.E. attire during the first week of class.

 

 

Special Dress Days

On certain days during the year students will be allowed free dress.  Students must always keep in mind neatness and modesty.  On these days the following will not be allowed: shorts that have less than a four-inch inseam, wide legged jeans, tight or low cut tops, tank tops, mini skirts, and shirts with inappropriate logos on them.  The administration reserves the right to determine if the student meets the standards of the school day and events.  If a student is not appropriately dressed, he or she will be sent home to change, and it will be considered an unexcused absence for the classes missed.
