                           Uniform Policy
OLMC
It is the responsibility of the student, with the cooperation of parents, to abide by the uniform policy. Uniforms should be clean and neat, not faded or torn. In fairness to the students and parents who adhere to the uniform regulation, the parents of students who are out of uniform will be called to bring uniform clothing to the school. Students who regularly violate uniform policy will not be permitted to participate in out-of-uniform days. Improper uniform due to unusual circumstances, i.e., flood or fire, will be excused with a note from the parent approved by the principal. Please insure that all school logos are the shield. Any clothing item with old logos are considered out-of-uniform.
