Students attending St. Mary's adhere to a dress code. We believe that the SMS uniform is a visible reminder of our identity as a Catholic community with cherished traditions and values. It emphasizes an atmosphere of respect, courtesy, and responsibility. It establishes a feeling of community and equality within the school, minimizes distraction in the classroom, promotes self-discipline, and encourages high personal standards.
Please refer to pages 19-22 in the Parent-Student Handbook for dress code guidelines. Call the school office at 423-282-3397 if you have any questions or need help navigating the supplier websites.
