Warm Weather Dress Code: Monday, 7 May
We will be moving to Dress Code II, or Warm Weather Dress Code on Monday, 7 May. Please note that Dress Code I: Regular Dress Code may always be worn if the student so chooses. However, Dress Code II allows for the following options:
Option 1: Regular Dress Code without Jacket. A jacket need not be worn. (Dress shirt, dress pants, dress shoes, a belt, socks). Sweater vests and long-sleeved sweaters are not permitted.
Option 2: Shorts/St. Paul’s Golf Shirt. Dress slacks may be replaced with acceptable dress shorts. These dress shorts must be a beige walking short, cut just above the knee and having belt loops, a zipper and pockets. The shorts should have a maximum of four pockets located in the traditional location on the short (two in the front; two in the back). The dress shirt may be replaced with a SPHS golf shirt. The shirts must be purchased from the Crusader Shoppe. When shorts are worn, socks must cover the ankle. Athletic shoes in good condition must be worn. Skateboarding-style and other casual shoes are not allowed. If a student chooses to wear high-cut athletic shoes, socks must be visible above the shoe.
Option 3: Dress Pants/St Paul’s Golf Shirt. A jacket need not be worn and the dress shirt and tie can be replaced by a St. Paul’s golf shirt as described in Option 2.
Note: All options are self contained and students are not permitted to mix and match elements from separate options. As always, students are not to be wearing hats or outdoor jackets throughout the school day. For those students in Grades 11 and 12 who have off campus privileges, the expectation is that they will manage their time appropriately so that they will be able to return to the building with reasonable time to put their outdoor gear away and, if necessary be dressed in an acceptable dress code option when emerging from the locker room. Failure to do so may result in a dress code violation and potentially a JUG.
