PHCS desires to create an educational environment that honors God and enhances learning. We want our students to take pride in being part of the PHCS community, and we believe our uniform is one way to exhibit school spirit. We also desire to foster a community among our students which is not driven by consciousness of economic or social differences.
Students should always wear neat and modest clothing to school. Modesty violations will be dealt with by the administration and may result in the denial of a student to attend classes until the problem is corrected. In some cases, the student may be sent home for the day. Rules of modesty for uniforms, athletic wear, and dress down day apparel apply at all times including evening and weekend school-sponsored events.
While hairstyles are an important expression of personal identity, they should not disrupt a student’s educational experience or that of others. A student’s face and eyes should be visible to teachers at all times.
Extremes and fads in dress, hairstyles, and makeup are not permitted. The final determination of a student’s compliance with dress code standards (clothing, footwear, accessories) rests with the administration. Parents are encouraged to contact the school office to discuss any dress code questions prior to making decisions on purchases.
Parents are responsible for ensuring their students are in constant compliance with all dress code requirements. They should not wait for a reminder from PHCS administration/teachers before scheduling haircuts for boys or for purchasing larger/longer skirts for girls. Students will not be permitted to attend school while awaiting compliance.
