Student Dress Code
At St. Mark’s, we believe a student uniform compliments our desire to improve the educational atmosphere on campus. Students in grades Pre-Kindergarten 4 through 8th must follow a dress code. Administration, support staff and teachers will enforce the code. Pre-Kindergarten 3 students are not required to wear uniforms.
Girls are required to attend school in the following attire:
- Navy blue slacks, skirt, skort or shorts. The “Classic Navy Large Plaid” from Dennis Uniforms or Lands End in skirt or jumper may be worn. No torn or ripped clothing or miniskirts/dresses. Skirt length no shorter than 2 inches above the knee.
- Red or White short or long-sleeved shirt (Navy blouses are permitted only if worn with St. Mark’s sanctioned plaid jumpers or skirts.)
- Leggings or tights may be worn under skirts and dresses only (not as pants), and must be solid blue and white. Long solid socks in navy, white or red may also be worn with skirts and dresses.

Sweaters, jackets, sweatshirts, and hoodies worn in the building must be uniform colors (white, red, navy or any approved St. Mark’s clothing) All outside wear may not feature brand names like “Gap”, “Abercrombie”, “Hollister” or Sports team’s logos. In regard to hoodies, hoods may not cover the head or face at any time.
Sweatshirts may be worn to and from school but NOT be worn in class August, September, April and May. Shorts may NOT be worn to school or class from November through February.
