Roncalli STEM Academy Dress Code

posted Aug 8, 2017, 12:53 PM by Bennett Smith   [ updated Nov 8, 2017, 7:59 AM ]


 [ updated an hour ago by Bennett Smith ]
Roncalli STEM Academy has implemented a simplified school dress code that utilizes a professional look that represents the strong educational focus that embodies a STEM Academy.  Based on surveys, parent meetings, and staff input we moved to a dress code that consists of only black polo’s and khaki pants.  These items can be purchased at many local retailers in the school uniform sections.  Roncalli STEM Academy will also be selling black polo shirts at the front desk for easy purchase. We here at Roncalli STEM Academy are very excited for the upcoming school year and the continuing changes for school improvement.

*Update for 2017-2018:  In addition to the black polo shirt and khaki pants, Roncalli STEM students are also permitted to wear a Roncalli logo sweatshirt or black cardigan sweater (black polo shirts must be worn under).
