Uniform School Policy
Dress code policy
“I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.” Romans 12:1
The only acceptable uniform clothing must come from:
Norman’s Uniform Company
371 W. 6th Street, San Pedro 90731
Fax: (310) 832-1410
Since we have a contract with this company, they maintain a stock of uniforms with our school name and logo. Because we walk in integrity as a business we will support this contract by using Norman’s solely as our supplier.
Please make payments with checks, this is the only way PHCS receives a percentage of your purchases.
Purpose and general guidelines
As Christians, it is our desire for students to please the Lord and be a good witness to others, not only in behavior, but also in appearance. Therefore, we require students to dress modestly without drawing undue attention to themselves. The use of a dress code, not only meets this goal, but it also conforms the student body in unity with an academy appearance. The dress standard for boys and girls throughout the school applies to student activities on and off campus at sporting events, and during special ceremonies.
Dress code attire
Our goal of an academy look includes overall neatness, being well groomed, shirts tucked in, and skirts no shorter than two inches above the knee. Shorts must only be uniform walking shorts and are not to be ordered too short or rolled up. Improper fit of shorts will be considered a Dress Code Violation even if they are uniform shorts! Note: Shorts are not to be worn on Chapel Days. Please check your calendar for the Chapel Schedule. If an assembly or chapel day falls on an elementary P.E. Day (T-F) approval for the shorts to be worn will be given by Principal.
Free dress day
We will incorporate a Free Dress Day for the students on special occasions that will be communicated on the monthly calendar. We will also have Wednesdays as Free Dress Days each week! Wednesdays are the only days students may wear Free Dress and only if they have earned a pass. Wearing Free Dress attire without a Free Dress Day Pass will result in a Dress Code Citation.
Free Dress Day Passes will be given out as a means of reward for outstanding conduct, and P.T.F. attendance. Free Dress may not be worn on Chapel days (unless approved by Principal).
Free Dress Day Dress Code will reflect modesty and Christian standards in character and appearance. The same school policy on length of skirts and dresses, shirts tucked in, and clothing size apply to Free Dress. We require that student’s refrain from wearing radical styles of clothing such as hip-hop, gang, skater, skinhead, surfer, Emo, and heavy metal. Plain white T-shirts are considered to be undershirts. White T-shirts must have a pocket or collar. No excessive jewelry or sub-cultural style. Students are allowed to wear hats or visors on Free Dress days.
Continued violation of the dress code will result in disciplinary actions. A “Dress Code Citation” will be written for dress code violations and numerous violations will result in suspension, including loss of Free Dress Day privileges, and a mandatory parent conference with the Principal.
Principal reserves the right in all cases to determine what is appropriate and what may attract undue attention to the student. Thank you for your cooperation.
Chapel dress code
If a student forgets to dress appropriately for Chapel by not wearing the proper chapel attire, the student’s teacher will write up a “Dress Code Citation.” 1st-8th grade boys wear navy uniform pants, white polo, and navy sweater or navy vest. 1st-5th grade girls wear plaid jumper, white sailor or peter pan blouse with burgundy tie (optional), 6th-8th grade girls wear plaid skirt, with white polo shirt, and navy sweater or navy vest.
Summer day camp Dress code
Casual, comfortable clothing is permitted, because of the summer weather and busy schedule of activities. However, we cannot compromise our Christian principle of moral and decent attire. Follow school policy on emblems and symbols on shirts, jewelry, lunch boxes, bags, hats, etc. No gang-like style, or sub cultural style is permitted. Hats are permitted but are to be worn for protection from the sun. All campers must wear camp shirt for all off-campus activities and field trips.
