 Dress Regulations

​Geibel Catholic Junior-Senior High School is committed to the affirmation of the self-worth of each person. We believe that the style of dress influences the students' self-concept, so a dress code has been instituted. Enrollment at Geibel signifies the intent of each student to abide by the standards set forth. Final decisions on dress code applications will be the sole responsibility of the school administration. Any dress code violations will result in detention.

Students are expected to be in compliance with the dress code at all times during the school day. No exceptions will be made. Students out of compliance during the day will receive detention(s). Continued violations could result in suspension and/or expulsion

At all times, the administration reserves the right to evaluate and critique an individual student's interpretation of the dress code policy as evidence by his/her appearance at that time. Final interpretation will be at the discretion of the administration.

 Required School Uniform

​Uniforms are an integral part of our culture at Geibel. All students are expected to take pride in their appearance and to dress and groom in a manner that will not disrupt the instructional climate. To maintain an orderly and safe environment, and to promote an appreciation of the importance of appropriate attire in the workplace, students are expected to dress according to the following guidelines.

It is the responsibility of parents to ensure that their child(ren) leaves for school dressed in appropriate school attire. All faculty members have the responsibility to enforce the dress code. The administration reserves the right to determine and curtail unacceptable articles of dress, jewelry and hair style.
