Uniform & Dress Code

Uniforms are required Monday through Friday. Students who are on campus during school hours, including before care and after care, must follow the SMSG Day School dress code unless otherwise directed. Please note that a uniform infraction may necessitate a call to the parents who will be asked to bring the proper uniform garment(s) to school. This also includes the correct shoes listed in the uniform requirements. The school reserves the right to tell students when their dress does not adhere to the dress code. Download the Dress Code.
