Dress standards for St. Peter Lutheran School should reflect excellent taste. All clothing should be modest, neat, clean and be such that it reflects a Christian image to the community and will not impair the normal school process. The school administration reserves the right to counsel all members of the school community regarding dress and grooming and to discipline those who do not comply with these guidelines.

  • All clothing should be neat in appearance (not faded, no holes, etc.) and not be too tight, loose or revealing.
  • With the exception noted in the dress code, no wording or pictures should be on clothing.
  • This dress code applies to time spent at the school, all extra curricular and athletic events, both home and away.
  • During cold weather proper attire must be worn (boots, hats and gloves). This is necessary for time spent outside. When jackets and coats are necessary, they must be worn properly.
  • If a student does not comply with this dress code, the student’s teacher will discuss this with him/her. If he/she continues not to comply, the student will be sent to the office for a review of the offense. Repeated non-compliance will result in a consultation with the assistant principal and the parent. Further offenses may result in suspension.

We will not take the children outside if the temperature is below 10 degrees F (the Wind Chill factor is considered). When the temperature is above 10 degrees F, we do go outside for recess. This means that students should be properly dresses – snow pants, boots, hat and gloves. This means that all children do go outside. A teacher can’t take some out and leave some behind unsupervised. If a child is too sick to go outisde, then he/she should not be sent to school for that day. Of course, we will still honor notes from a doctor stating that the child should be kept inside during a period of recovery from an illness or injury.
