Uniform Policy

KgirlswleavesThe official uniform is made up of the following items. Some pieces are only available on the online Uniform and Spirit Store or the Dennis Uniform Store (for classic logo) as indicated below. All other pieces may be purchased elsewhere as long as they MATCH IN STYLE, COLOR, AND TEXTURE to uniform pieces available on the online store. Please contact the school office with questions.

St. John School maintains a Uniform Exchange Program for families wishing to donate gently-used uniform items in good condition. Uniform Exchange pieces are available either by appointment or at school events several times per year. For more information about donating or receiving uniforms via the exchange, please contact Rula Saleh or Carissa Person-Hurley at carissalayla@yahoo.com and use “Uniform Exchange” in the subject line.
