2021-2022 Dress Code

St. Michael’s has an important tradition of a student Dress Code. While we relaxed the dress code during the 2020-21 school year due to the pandemic, we will return to our standard dress code for the 2021-22 school year. That said, we will continue to go outdoors and utilize our 70 acres for both learning and play, so children should wear appropriate clothing for the season, applicable weather gear, and sturdy shoes. School administrators are the final arbiters for what is (not) considered appropriate dress.
