Student & Family Handbook
Uniforms help keep the learning environment safe and focused and also create a sense of community and cohesion for our students. We greatly appreciate the cooperation of both parents and students in helping us maintain this environment.
Students out of uniform will be disciplined according to the Student & Family Handbook (see below) policy. To see a full version of these policies, see the Student & Family Handbook (see below).
It is impossible to encompass every eventuality of dress and appearance in this policy; therefore, the judgment of the Administration is final in all matters of dress and uniform. Students who are not in conformity with the Uniform/Dress Code may not be permitted to attend classes, and may also face disciplinary consequences for failure to follow the school uniform guidelines.
All uniform items listed below, except belts, shoes, and sportswear are to be purchased through Risse Brothers at https://www.rissebrothers.com or at the store located at:
11701 S. Belcher Rd., Suite 128-130 Largo, FL 33773
The dress and grooming of all students shall reflect modesty and good taste and shall not be disruptive of the classroom atmosphere or educational program of the school. Final judgment on any questions of appearance and the interpretation of the dress requirements will be made by the administration. At the discretion of the administration a student who is in violation of the dress requirements may not attend class and may be sent home or a parent or guardian may be called to bring proper attire. Students may also face disciplinary consequences for failure to follow the school uniform guidelines. No refund will be given to any student who is asked to leave an SPCHS function due to violation of dress code.
UNIFORMS MUST BE WORN EVERY SCHOOL DAY UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED.
Occasionally the administration permits Dress Down Days. These days will be announced and posted on the school website. It is the responsibility of the parent/guardian and student to check the website for acceptable dress down items.
THE FOLLOWING ARE NEVER ACCEPTABLE as part of the everyday uniform or on dress down days:
- Anything that does not uphold the values of St. Petersburg Catholic High School, Inc.
- Open toe or open back shoes
- Slippers, slides, crocs
- Shorts other than the uniform shorts

IN ALL MATTERS OF DRESS, THE SPCHS ADMINISTRATION RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DETERMINE APPROPRIATENESS OF ALL ATTIRE AND ALL ACCESSORIES. THIS INCLUDES ALL SCHOOL RELATED EVENTS OR ACTIVITIES ON OR OFF CAMPUS.
