Our Lady of the Snows Uniform Policy 2022- 2023 School Year

The intent of our school uniform:  Our dress code’s intent is to foster a spirit of community, leadership and respect.  As a Catholic community, OLS believes that the way we represent ourselves reflects something about who we are.  Our uniform encourages students to focus on self-expression through a student’s skills and talents, not their outward appearance or material goods.  Our uniform policy helps us teach that our understanding and expression of self is grounded in our faith, character and Christian dignity.

Uniform pieces are available from Lands’ End or Kate’s Logos.  Sweaters and sweatshirts must be free of all embellishments, decorations and logos (except for the school logo.) Students may not wear any other non-uniform hoodies, jackets etc., while in class.  Uniforms may not be altered other than properly hemmed.  Uniforms should not have tears or holes.  Pants and skirts must be worn around the waist and must fit appropriately.  Leggings, skinny, cargo, baggy or jean style pants are not allowed.  Final determination of uniform compliance rests with the school. In addition, the Principal reserves the right to add additional uniform standards as advised by the Reno Police Department or the Washoe County School District as related to gang attire.

Specific uniform policy guidelines may be found in the Parent Student Handbook here on RenWeb.
