School Uniform/Dress Code

The standard of dress at St. Marguerite d’Youville is set by the good judgement and discretion of parents and staff.  If the school is to be a special place where community can expect a standard of excellence, and where the students are to develop a sense of dignity and a seriousness about learning, then it follows that our style of dress reflect that standard.
