St. Jude of the Lake

Uniform Policy and Expectations

At St. Jude of the Lake, our uniform is a visual sign of our school community. Students in uniform gain a sense of pride in themselves and their school. In addition, the uniform may help build self-confidence and respect, and direct a focus on learning.

Clothing must be neat, clean, and in good repair. Neatness and cleanliness will be expected at all times. This includes, but is not limited to, having shirts tucked in and buttoned completely with the exception of the top button. All St. Jude of the Lake School faculty and staff have the right to enforce all and any part of this policy.

School uniform shirts may have either the OLD or NEW school logo for the 2021-2022 school year.
Beginning Fall 2022, only uniform shirts with the NEW school logo will be permitted.

Only school approved sweatshirts and fleece jackets may be worn in the classroom or in church during school hours. Please remember turtleneck shirts or clothing with any type of visible labels are not part of the code. Wearing a t-shirt under the uniform shirt for warmth is acceptable if it is not visible.

The listed items follow the uniform policy. You are NOT required to purchase every option, but should order the items that best fit your child’s needs.
