MODELLA UNIFORMS – 2019 FLYER

 

Student Dress/Uniform Code

The OLL uniform policy is a sign of our community of faith. Therefore, we ask parents to be sure their children are in proper uniform each day. At the beginning of the school year, all parents are asked to sign a commitment to support the school policies. This indicates their acceptance to comply with the dress code.

 

All students must purchase their uniform from Modella Uniforms in La Crescenta or Pasadena. Any item worn or brought to school that does not conform to the uniform code will be confiscated and returned to the parent. Parents are asked to send a note to the teacher when a child must wear something other than a proper uniform on an emergency basis. Blue jeans or denim pants, jean/denim overalls, T-shirts or jean/denim skirts are not allowed for emergency clothing.

 

The dress code policy will be enforced without discrimination or favoritism to any particular child or grade. If you choose to send your child to OLL, you are responsible for their compliance with the written dress code. School Administration and the Principal have the final authority of all dress code disputes. The Principal may make changes to the dress code, if necessary, during the school year by sending out a written notification to be signed by both students and parents.

There is a two week period allowed to replace school items that are missing.

 

Any infraction of these dress codes will result in the parents being called to bring the child’s official uniform. In addition, the student will lose privileges for the next specified alternative dress day.

 

Modella Uniform Company is the official uniform company for OLL. All uniform items, specific to OLL must be purchased from Modella Uniform Company.

 

Personal Appearance of Students

All students of OLL are expected to be neatly dressed during the school day.  Emphasis should be placed on good taste, neatness, cleanliness, and modesty. We place the responsibility on parents to please check your children for grooming and hygiene.  Lack of improvement in personal hygiene is grounds for dismissal of a pupil during the school day. All students are to follow the uniform policy at all times.
