As part of our Catholic Identity, the wearing of our uniforms reminds us that we are all one and part of the same community.  Therefore, we take pride in the proper display of the uniform and require full compliance at all times from all our students as part of our mission of what it means to be a Mt. Carmel Crusader.

NAILS: Nail color, artificial nails/tips, gel nails, etc, are not permitted.

HAIR:  Artificial hair coloring or bleaching of hair is not allowed for boys or girls. (This includes frosting, hi-lights and tinting)  “Fad” hairstyles or distracting hairstyles are not permitted.  Boys, regardless of grade level or age, are not allowed facial hair of any kind and must be clean shaven.   Hair length may not cover the eyes and for boys may not extend past a standard collar and must be neatly groomed. The principal is the sole determinant of what constitutes a fad, distracting or messily groomed hair. Headbands, bandanas, caps, hats, or any other type of variation are not allowed; to include hair ornaments or decorations which could be construed as distracting; unless otherwise approved by the principal.

DRESS:  Mass days require mass uniform. Non-mass days require standard uniform.  Shirts are to remain tucked in at all times. Tight or excessively loose clothing is not permitted. Skirts and shorts must be no shorter than 2 inches above the kneecap.  Hoodie jackets are to be worn strictly as designed and not to be displayed in being tied around waist or any other type of variation.

JEWELRY:  Studs and small hoop earrings for girls.  No more than one piercing per ear for girls. No cartilage earrings.  No earrings or piercings on boys.  No tattoos, no body or facial piercing.   Watches and religious medals may be worn, so long as they do not cause a distraction, but must be worn inside the uniform shirt/top.

MAKEUP:  No visible make-up is allowed.  Girls in 6-8th may wear a light foundation or powder if needed to cover blemishes, but color must match skin tone, not be noticeable, and must be applied only at home.

P.E. UNIFORMS:  If your child has P.E. on Mass days and is not wearing suitable shoes for P.E., please send tennis shoes in their gym bag
