Uniform Policy

The uniform policy for SJS will be changing.  The goal is to simplify the dress code but not to cause unnecessary spending so the changes will not fully go into effect until the 2020-2021 school year.

Those students who were enrolled in SJS during the 18-19 school year and are in grades 6-8 will not be affected by these changes unless you need to purchase new uniforms before your time at SJS is complete.
