ICS

Dress Code

Your school uniform confirms your attendance at Immaculate Conception School and is a symbol of unity within the school community. It minimizes distractions in the learning process. It is important that you take pride in your appearance by wearing your complete uniform always remembering that by wearing it inside and outside the classroom and the school you are representing the school and your behavior should be a credit to both yourself and the school community.

On the first day of school your child should wear ICS Golf shirt and either ICS gym shorts or skort. Because sometimes little ones might have an accident, all PreK students should have a change of clothes in school.  This does not need to be an extra school uniform, just an outfit that would be easy to change into.  From time to time we will have special days for “Outfit of Choice!”
