Uniform Policy

Cardinal Spellman High School has established a dress code and uniform policy for all students. The school dress code reflects and promotes a formal, business-like atmosphere, which is free of distractions and conducive to learning. Parents must help in supporting all policies of the school, including the dress code and uniform policies, by ensuring students are dressed appropriately, according to the dress code.

Students with a uniform violation or found to be not in compliance with the dress code policy will be sent to the office, receive an office detention, and may not return to class until they are in the proper uniform. Parents will be called to bring the appropriate clothing or student will be sent home to change before returning to school. If a parent cannot be reached, student may be furnished with uniform attire from the school’s uniform closet.

On “dress down” days, students must comply with the conditions set forth in terms of acceptable attire. Any student found not in compliance will be sent to the office and a parent will be called to provide appropriate attire.

All uniform clothing and accessories can be purchased through JBPride Uniforms except for the ¼ zip, grey, nylon uniform sweatshirt, which can be purchased through the Spellman Store.
