St. Joseph Regional Catholic School Uniform Policy

St. Joseph Regional Catholic School students wear uniforms in grades Pre-Kindergarten-Eighth. Parents are expected to help children be in compliance with the school uniform code. At St. Joseph Regional School we wear uniforms in order to:

  • Represent our Catholic school image
  • Help instill discipline which contributes to academic success and other endeavors in life
  • Discourage differences brought about by various income levels, thus eliminating unnecessary peer pressure and allowing the attention of the students to be directed to learning
  • Assure that the dress standards of the school emphasize neatness
  • Promote an image of pride both at and away from school and help create a positive climate of discipline and responsibility
  • Promote an attitude of moderation and modesty
  • Provide cost effective clothing that is easily maintained

  1. I just wanted to let you guys know that all of the items shown in the policy aren’t available on the website just yet. There is a really great promotion going on for 20% of the uniforms, but the extra items like the vests, polo shirts, fleece jackets, sweaters, cardigans and PE clothes are not available as of this morning. I just wanted to make you guys aware. Thank you!

  2. the new uniforms are not on the Parker website such as the yellow polo shirts. will the yellow polo shirts have logo? are the mass shirts for the boys the same as last year?

    1. Yes, the yellow polo shirts will have the St. Joseph Logo. The mass shirts are different this year, they are the Blue Oxford shirts. Thanks!

  3. I could not find the PE uniforms for girls on the Parker School website. Is there a different way to order them? Also, could you please give us an example of the shoes the kids can wear? Are black Keds allowed? Thank you 🙂

    1. Hello Yolanda,
      The gym uniforms are not quite ready to order yet but we will update parents when they are available for purchase. In the mean time, any solid shirt and basketball shorts will do fine. Shoes must be dress shoes, or leather shoes. No no athletic shoes such as jordans, or tennis shoes such as keds or converse.
