St. Mary Magdalen School requires students to wear approved school uniforms.
School uniforms remind students and parents that we are part of a Catholic school community with certain expectations in standards of social conduct and academics. Our school also seeks to establish an environment where children are known for who they are inside, rather than for the appearance they project on the outside. The uniform policy levels the playing field and provides a sense of unity among children from all situations. Uniforms also provide a tangible means of allowing teachers and staff to instantly identify outsiders who may or may not belong on the school grounds.
A detailed description of the uniform policy may be found in the Parent/Student Handbook.

Free Dress Guidelines
From time to time throughout the year, students are offered the chance to wear “free dress” instead of the standard school uniform. We understand that current styles are the first preference for students when they are offered the opportunity for free dress at school. We ask your support in ensuring your student is appropriately dressed for our Catholic school’s free dress days.
Current styles can be significantly less modest and less conservative than our school uniforms. Please help your girls wear appropriate-length skirts and modest tops and pants. Even on free dress days, we do not allow tank tops or spaghetti straps. Boys should also dress appropriately, avoiding excessively baggy clothes or jeans with holes, etc. Student shoes should be safe for stairs, recess, and our outside grounds. Thank you for helping your student measure up to the values of our school.
