Uniforms and appearance

Dressing in the Waldron Mercy uniform is an important part of the school day. Teachers will enforce the uniform policy. If it is necessary for a child to be out of uniform, a note should be sent to the homeroom teacher. Dates for uniform changes are noted on the calendar.

Boys’ hair should be trimmed so as not to touch their collars and girls’ hair should be neatly groomed. Baseball or other hats, bandanas, and headbands decorated with big flowers, etc. may not be worn. Jewelry should be simple and not distracting. No body piercings are permitted, except pierced ears. Earrings should be no larger than 1 1/2 cm and without hoops.

Cosmetics should be sheer or neutral. Clear, sheer nail polish or a French manicure may be worn. Extreme hair coloring and visible tattoos are not permitted. Students may only wear Waldron Wear (no flannel pants) in place of their gym uniforms for physical education class.
