St. Agatha Academy has a required uniform that all students in grades Pre-K – 8th must wear during the school day unless the Principal has declared an exception for a particular day or event. The policy attempts to indicate what the student is permitted to wear. If the policy does not indicate something is permitted, assume it is not.
Due to the challenge to find small clothes in uniform styles below for pre-K (3 and 4 year olds) flexibility is given to families with students at this grade level.

DRESS CODE VIOLATION

If the student arrives to school out of uniform or in violation of the uniform code the following steps will be taken:

On the first and second offense, a call will be made to the parent asking them to bring in the appropriate items. If the parent cannot bring the item to school, the school will provide (from the used uniform exchange) the appropriate clothing.

On the third instance of a uniform violation, a 1 hour working detention will be issued.

If the violation is in regard to overbearing or excessive jewelry, the student will be expected to remove the jewelry, and turn it in to the principal. The principal will keep the jewelry until a parent is available to pick it up or until the end of the day.

SAA Logos

Families with plain shirts and blouses with no logo may have them embroidered at All-Star Sports , or Winchester Cleaners, both on the By-pass in Winchester.

New items with SAA logos may be purchased through Land’s End On-line stores.
