 Dress Regulations

​Greensburg Central Catholic Junior-Senior High School is committed to the affirmation of the self-worth of each person. We believe that the style of dress influences the student's self-concept, so a dress code has been instituted. Enrollment at Greensburg Central signifies the intent of each student to abide by the standards set forth. Final decisions on dress code applications will be the sole responsibility of the school administration. Any dress code violations will result in detention.

Students are expected to be in compliance with the dress code at all times during the school day. No exceptions will be made. Students out of compliance during the day will receive detention(s). Continued violations could result in suspension and/or expulsion.

At all times, the administration reserves the right to evaluate and critique an individual student's interpretation of the dress code policy as evidenced by his or her appearance at that time. Final interpretation will be at the discretion of the administration.

Dress Code Notes:

  • All uniforms must be in good condition - frayed, torn, or ripped uniforms are not permitted.
  • When ordering uniforms, please keep in mind that the shirts, blazers, sweaters, skirts, and skorts must be worn for four years and must fit appropriately according to the above guidelines at all times.

 Injuries and Uniforms

​Students are required to wear their uniforms when injured, unless they are unable to do so due to an injury. When it is necessary to be out of uniform, the clothing worn must be neat and appropriate. A doctor's excuse must be provided if it is necessary for the student to be out of uniform.

A student who is out of uniform must report to the administration for an Out of Uniform excuse.

Early dismissals and late arrivals are not an excuse to be out of uniform. Only the administration may give permission for any student to be out of uniform.
