Uniform Code

The dress code provides a standard for our students, which fosters an environment conducive to learning and respectful behavior.

Final decisions regarding the school uniform rest with the principal/administration.

UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS & OTHER PERTINENT INFORMATION

All uniforms must be purchased at Flynn and O’Hara in Fair City Mall, Fairfax, Virginia. Also, used summer, winter, and P.E. uniforms are available for purchase from the PTO.

Flynn and O’Hara measure the girls’ jumper below the knee and the girls’ skirt at the knee or 2” below. It is expected that the girls wear their uniform accordingly.
