The Dress Code of St. Pius X School strives to reflect good taste, neatness, cleanliness and Christian modesty while avoiding trends and fads. Students reflect pride in themselves and their school by the way they dress and act. Clothing must be the appropriate length and fit, be in good repair, free from rips, holes and frays. It is expected that parents/guardians will ensure their students attend school in dress code.
