Dress Code and Uniforms
All students must dress in a manner that is consistent with Christian principles and suitable to an academic setting. Decency and modesty are required in the clothes that are worn. Although parents are primarily responsible for the dress of their individual children, the school reserves the right to determine dress standards in the school and at school functions. We believe that our school can and should be distinguished by the dress of its students. Extremes of clothing or grooming to gain undue attention or to challenge the accepted standards of the school will not be tolerated.
Boys are required to wear khaki-style pants with a collared shirt, either a polo or button-down style. Girls are required to wear khaki-style pants, dresses, modest skirts, skorts, or jumpers with a polo shirt or modest, collared blouse with sleeves. Clothing may not have pictures or words, except that an item of clothing may contain a single logo no larger than two inches. Tops may have patterns (e.g. stripes, plaid) but bottoms, including dresses, skirts, skorts and jumpers, must be solid colors. For practical reasons related to school activities, socks and shoes must be worn to school; no sandals or flip flops are allowed. Non-marking athletic footwear is required on P.E. days.
All students are required to wear their logo uniform shirt each Wednesday.
While the above is our everyday uniform, we also have these occasional categories:
Field Trip Uniform:
On field trips, students will wear their logo uniform shirts for identity with our school. Students may wear their uniform khakis but are also permitted to wear jeans on most trips. There may be field trips where more formal dress is required; the teacher will stipulate that on the field trip permission forms. On any week when there is a field trip, the field trip day counts as the logo uniform shirt day; it is not required to wear the logo shirts again on Wednesday of that week.
On recitation nights, graduation, picture day, and any other formal occasion
(i.e. giving a special report in class) students will wear their logo uniform shirts. Boys will wear belts with their navy or tan slacks. Girls will wear navy or tan skirts. All students will wear dress shoes and have their shirts tucked in.
P.E. Uniform (5th – 8th grades):
On P.E. days, the 5th – 8th graders must bring along a P.E. uniform and change at school for P.E. class. The P.E. uniform consists of non-marking athletic footwear, a blue t-shirt (with or without the Providence logo), and either sweat pants or knee-length athletic shorts with no pictures or words.
Providence is now using Lands' End as the school uniform provider for Providence-branded apparel such as uniform shirts and PE shirts. Providence's Preferred School Number at Lands' End is: 900190802.
Spirit wear is not part of the school uniform but can be worn outside of school to show support for our school. Providence spirit wear is available at Lands' End and can be purchased not only by students, but also by parents and PCA supporters.
Note: for all PCA logo items, there is an additional $5.95 logo application fee.
