Student Dress Code

Neatness, cleanliness and appropriateness are important in producing a serious academic atmosphere. THE DRESS CODE IS IN EFFECT FROM THE TIME A STUDENT ARRIVES IN THE MORNING UNTIL HE OR SHE LEAVES THE BUILDING AT THE END OF THE SCHOOL DAY.  Wherever they go, our students should be aware that they represent Holy Name High School and their appearance should reflect well on the school.
 
It is the responsibility of all students, as well as their parents, to cooperate with the school and to conform to the spirit as well as the letter of the dress code. Please do not allow your child to leave for school in violation of the dress code.
