Research reveals that the learning environment and student achievement are positively impacted by strict student dress standards. For this reason, Bishop DuBourg High School has high standards for student dress. Each student is expected to be neat, clean and dressed according to the school’s dress code. Parents are requested to ensure their child follows the dress code. Bishop DuBourg High School Administration reserves the right to modify the dress code with a thirty-day written notice to parents. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Each day, before entering advisory, students must be in dress code attire. Violations of the dress code will result in a demerit. Continual dress code violations indicate a lack of cooperation and insubordination and can lead to JUG(s), suspension and/or conference with parents/guardians. In the final analysis, the school administration reserves the right to decide what is appropriate dress and attire. If the violation is obviously and seriously inappropriate, the administration may decide to send the student home to change into the proper uniform.
On out-of-uniform days, students must wear school appropriate shirts, pants and shoes. Shorts must be school appropriate length. Students may not wear sandals, slides, flip flops, pajama pants, low-rise pants, or tops with bare midriffs, bare shoulders, or low-cut necklines. If girls choose to wear leggings or yoga pants, the girls must wear pants made of thicker material (not see-thru) and also wear a longer top which covers their rear ends. Jeans and sweat pants may not have tears or holes. Students may not alter their uniform clothing (i.e. put names on the back of shirts, cut off sleeves, staples or pins in skirts or pants etc.)
If the students have earned the privilege by dressing appropriately during the week, Fridays will be a casual day. Students may wear any Bishop DuBourg t-shirt and any approved uniform pants, skirts, or shorts. Bishop DuBourg shirts of any style are not required to be tucked in on Fridays. Casual Fridays are a privilege. If the administration feels that a casual day is not warranted, the students will be required to be in the usual dress code.
Jewelry is to be classroom appropriate. Pierced earrings may be worn; other pierced body jewelry may be worn if the jewelry is small and clear in color. No other body adornments are to be visible (i.e. tattoos). All jewelry seen as inappropriate by the administration must be removed. Any jewelry that calls undue attention to itself is not permitted.
Pants must be solid khaki or navy blue. Pants must fit properly, be hemmed, and in good condition. Pants must be worn at the waistline and may not sag. If pants sag, then a belt must be worn. Girls may not wear jeggings or low-rise pants. No denim (regardless of color) or athletic pants are allowed. Capris that adhere to the above standards are acceptable for ladies.
Skirts may not be rolled at the waistband. Skirts must be zipped and buttoned. If a skirt is too short, too small, or too large the skirt must be altered. If a skirt is deemed by the administration to be too small or too large, the student will be required to either alter, purchase a new uniform skirt or wear only approved uniform pants.
Neutral, white, black or gray full-length tights or leggings may be worn. These should not be see-thru.
In cold weather, ladies are permitted to wear pants under their skirt as they walk into the building. After entering the building, the students must remove the pants before advisory begins
- White or black, collared long-sleeved or short-sleeved button down shirts or blouses may be worn.
- White and black polo shirts may be purchased anywhere and are not required to have the DB logo. Red and gray, polo shirts must have the DB logo and must be purchased through Lands’ End. Black and white polo shirts are also available through Lands’ End.
- Shirts determined by the administration to be too large or too small are not allowed.
- T-shirts worn under a uniform shirt must be tucked in. Sleeves and undershirts may not show below the uniform shirt. A white, black, red and gray long-sleeve shirt may be worn under a polo shirt. The t-shirts cannot have any visible advertising.
Sweaters must be solid colored black, white, red, or gray. Sweaters may be purchased through Lands’ End or Catholic Supply. ONLY Bishop DuBourg sweatshirts, jackets and fleeces may be worn. The sweatshirt must contain the Bishop DuBourg High School name or DB/Cavalier logo. No hooded sweatshirts, jackets, or shirts will be allowed during the school day.
Hair is to be clean, neatly groomed, and of a “natural” color. Any hairstyle that calls undue attention to itself is not permitted. This includes stripes or designs of any kind. Hair that falls in a student’s face and inhibits proper vision is not permitted. Gentlemen must be cleanshaven. If the student is not clean-shaven, he will be instructed to shave by the next day. Repeated violations will be viewed as insubordination.
