Preschool Dress Code

Preschoolers are required to wear a gym uniform and sneakers to school on the day their class has gym.  Each preschool class has gym once a week and your child’s teacher will let you know the day. The gym uniform is optional for the other days that your child attends school.

Gym Uniform:

  • T-shirt/sweatshirt: light gray with SJB Catholic School Logo

  • Shorts or sweatpants: hunter green or navy blue (no gray and no leggings)

  • Sneakers are to be NON-MARKING ONLY (no flip-flops or crocs)

  • Socks: White, navy blue or dark green only and must be free of logos. The socks must cover ankle bone and be visible at least two inches above the ankle.

On non-gym days, preschoolers should wear washable play clothes with button snaps and zippers that he or she can manage alone. Also, please have shoes that have quiet, NON-MARKING SOLES.

Label everything that can be removed. We cannot be responsible for lost items. The first cool day means extra clothing and the children cannot always identify that new jacket or sweater.

Elementary Dress Code

Uniform components may be purchased from Flynn & O'Hara Uniform Company throughout the year, online or at the stores (Towson or Harrisburg). The school also holds Uniform Exchanges each summer in which our families donate clean, used uniform items back to the school and find "new" used items they may need.


At all times, students are to be:

  • All shoes must have NON-MARKING SOLES and be either school uniform shoes or sneakers. No sandals, flip-flops, Crocs or high heels are to be worn.

  • Shirts must have sleeves cover the shoulder and be long enough to cover the waistband of the pants that are being worn and must have appropriate logos and wording.
