Respect The Plaid: Uniform Guidelines

Respect the Plaid: Uniform Guidelines

When we wear the plaid, we represent Nerinx. The plaid skirt is the one thing that unites and defines us as one community. By respecting the plaid, we, in turn, respect ourselves, each other, and our Nerinx community as a whole.

  • Ourselves: We are committing to wearing the plaid appropriately. 
  • Each Other: We encourage creativity and diversity. We want everyone to make the plaid their own by wearing it in a way that shows their personality.
  • Nerinx Community: We want to make sure we are representing ourselves in the best possible way.

Non-Uniform Days

Smart Casual is our opportunity to dress out of uniform but represent ourselves in a casual yet professional way. Think “business casual” in an office setting. On designated Smart Casual days (this includes the FIRST WEEK OF SCHOOL), students are permitted to dress out of uniform but will be expected to follow specific dress guidelines. Jeans and shorts are permitted, however, they must be hemmed, have no holes, and be an appropriate length. Smart casual DOES NOT include frayed hems, stained or torn apparel, sweatpants, bike pants or athletic shorts. Shirts with appropriate logos and cut are permitted. NO halters, tank tops, tube tops, etc. will be allowed. No visible midriffs.

Dress-Up days are when Nerinx girls really shine. These days typically are reserved for Theatre Day or Thanksgiving Liturgy. Think professional or church appropriate dress. Dress-Up DOES NOT include jeans, shorts, or logo apparel. Items worn must be in good repair. No stains, holes, or frays.

Dress-Down days are our days to relax. We encourage students to take this day to wear club or team apparel. Jeans and shorts are permitted; however, they must be of appropriate length. Athletic shorts are allowed. Shirts may include logos, but nothing offensive will be permitted. No visible midriffs.
