Dress Code and Uniform Policy

Our dress code and school uniforms are designed to be conservative in nature to avoid distractions to the learning environment. PARENTS are expected to help children comply with the school uniform rules.  

At St. Frances Cabrini School we wear uniforms because . . ..  

  1. They discourage differences brought about by various income levels, thus eliminating unnecessary peer pressure, and allowing the attention of the student to be directed to learning. 
  1. They promote an image of pride both at and away from school. They represent our Catholic school image.  
  1. They help create a positive climate of discipline and responsibility.  
  1. They are financially less costly to families and more easily maintained.  
  1. They promote an attitude of moderation and modesty
