Uniforms & Spirit Wear
K-8 DRESS CODE
A school dress code plays an important part of our school culture by de-emphasizing clothing as a status symbol, promoting school spirit, easing morning routines and promoting a positive educational environment conducive to learning. The following is the approved K-8 dress code for SD.

9-12 DRESS CODE and SPIRIT WEAR
Faculty and student dress and grooming help maintain an atmosphere conducive to learning. Our dress code is based on appropriateness, cleanliness, and safety. In addition, all expectations and guidelines are derived from our core values as an organization that fosters respect among all individuals within the community.
For announced designated dress-up days:
For specific events at San Domenico, students are required to “dress up”. For these designated dress-up days, students are expected to wear dresses/skirts, nice slacks/pants and a collared long sleeve dress shirt. No t-shirts with prints or screen tees may be worn. No sweatshirts, including SD or college clothing, may be worn. Students are expected to abide by these guidelines. Students out of dress code, will be asked to change their clothing. The Dean of Students will provide the student with appropriate attire, if necessary. Should a student continue to wear inappropriate clothing, he/she will face further disciplinary action.
