Skirts must be worn no shorter than 5" from the floor to the bottom of the skirt when kneeling. All young ladies will have their skirt length checked at least once during the first quarter of the school year. It is our hope that parents actively partner with the school in this effort. Please contact Jeff Pratt, Dean of Students, with any questions or concerns.
