At St. James Episcopal School, we wear uniforms to project an atmosphere of uniformity, pride, loyalty and equality among the student population. Uniforms remove some of the distractions, make students feel included and tend to make students feel like part of a “team” at school. Uniforms are mandatory and parents are required to support the policy and insure only the approved uniform is worn. Below, you will find important information reguarding the SJES uniform policies, as well as helpful reminders. 

Parents are expected to support this policy by ensuring their children wear only the approved school uniform.

SJES students are required to wear uniforms and have good grooming habits.

Hair must be neat, clean, well-groomed and not cover the face.

Appropriate shoes must be worn at all times to ensure safety on the playground and during PE.

No flashing lights or wheels in the bottom of tennis shoes are allowed.

No ripped clothing of any kind is permitted.

Spirit shirts may be worn on Mondays with blue jean pants, blue jean shorts or blue jean skirts (for girls)- No ripped, frayed or faded jeans. All other uniform rules apply.

Formal uniforms are to be worn on Wednesdays, and for special events throughout the school year, such as picture days, grandparent's day, etc. If formal uniforms are required, parents will be notified in advance. 

Our exclusive uniform supplier is Lands’ End and uniforms are available through catalog/internet order only.

Formal Wednesday uniforms must be worn every Wednesday unless otherwise notified by your child's teacher or the school office. Polos & oxfords must be tucked in at all times. Boys pants and shorts from Lands’ End have elastic waist bands and girls’ uniform skirts and skorts come with adjustable waist bands to accommodate the smaller students. Tennis shoes may not have flashing lights, wheels or glitter. Hair must be neat, clean, well-groomed, and not cover the face. NO ripped clothing of any kind may be worn and fingernail polish, temporary tattoos or other body art are prohibited at school. No jewelry may be worn except for a small watch and a small, modest, religious necklace. Students must keep religious necklaces tucked into his or her polo shirt for safety reasons. A solid long sleeve white shirt may be worn under uniform polos when the weather begins to change. Winter wear is for outdoor activities and uniform polos must be worn under all outerwear, including sweatshirts. Please label all outerwear with your students’ name to help ensure the right sweater or coat makes it home with the right student. For lost outerwear and other items, please check the school's Lost and Found, or contact the school office. Students will remain inside if the weather is below 40° as indicated by the school’s weather bug. Rain boots may be worn on rainy days, but students must change into tennis shoes upon entering the building. All above listed rules apply to No Uniform Days as well. Please refer to the Parent Handbook for non-compliance rules and further information.
