The uniform identifies one as a student of Our Lady of Guadalupe School. It also helps to encourage and reflect good grooming, responsible behavior and study habits. The dress code is based on modesty, neatness, cleanliness, good taste, and safety. Parents are expected to understand and support these guidelines as well as help their children make good choices about appropriate attire and grooming. Please contact the school before purchasing any items to be worn at school if you have questions or are unclear about the dress code.
OLG’s Dress Code Policy
The formal full dress uniform must be worn with the OLG logo sweatshirt, vest, cardigan sweater or fleece. Formal full dress or “blues” are required for All-School Mass for grades K-8. Please note that OLG Spirit Wear -with the bulldog logo- is NOT acceptable as proper uniform.

OLG Spirit Day
Let’s show off our school spirit! On OLG Spirit Days, students are allowed to wear OLG spiritwear, anything CYO, or their uniform. OLG spiritwear is clothing with the school logo or name, in lieu of uniform items. Students may also wear CYO sports uniforms. OLG Spirit Days are NOT free dress. OLG spiritwear is NOT to take place of uniforms on regular uniform school days. Students not wearing spiritwear or CYO sports uniforms on OLG Spirit Days should wear their daily school uniform. See the School Calendar for scheduled OLG Spirit Days, which are generally the first Friday of the month.
Spirit Wear is available for purchase on the online OLG Store. (OLG Spirit Wear (with the bull dog logo) is NOT acceptable as uniform).
Occasionally, Spirit Wear items may be available from the uniform exchange to borrow.
Free Dress / Non-Uniform Days
On the occasional non-uniform days, students are allowed to wear clothing of their choice, provided that it is in good condition and appropriate for school. Such days will be announced throughout the year. Spandex, jeans or pants with holes or graffiti, or that are too baggy or sagging; as well as shirts with inappropriate words, slogans, or art, or ones that are oversized are never allowed. Halter-tops or any tops that do not cover the waist are not to be worn. Students may not wear hats inside the building on free-dress days. The only exception to this is on Spirit Days, when the hat may be part of the theme.
** REMEMBER TO LABEL ALL CLOTHING ITEMS WITH CHILD’S NAME **
