Uniforms and General Appearance

School uniforms promote unity, modesty, and neatness. They should in no way be worn or altered to make a fashion statement. Our uniforms prevent unnecessary fashion competition.



  • Students must be in uniform starting the first day of school.
  • Students should also practice proper hygiene daily.
  • Uniforms must fit appropriately and modestly. NO “tight-fitting” clothing.
  • Skirt, jumper, skort or short length may not be shorter than 3” (inches) from the top of the knee (repeat violations of skirt length may result in a requirement to wear pants instead of a skirt, jumper or skort).
  • During to and from school and recess periods, non-St. Francis jackets or coats may be worn in addition to the uniform attire.

About Us

St. Francis Elementary School opened on November 5,1895, as a two room school staffed by the Sisters of Mercy from St. Joseph’s Academy. The school, under their direction, expanded to grade twelve by 1947. Several years later, the high school was relocated, and the present site became an elementary school only.
