Uniforms are required in Intermediate School. It is the policy of Saint Stephen’s Episcopal School to have an Intermediate School dress code that reflects an attitude of respect for the school community. The way we dress reflects respect for ourselves, our school community, and for the School’s educational goals. Cooperation in wearing an Intermediate School uniform encourages responsibility and self-discipline on the part of the students. All students are expected to be neat, clean, and appropriately dressed for their learning environment.
Boys: Uniform navy or khaki walking shorts or slacks. All pants must be uniform.
Girls: Uniform navy or khaki walking shorts, slacks, capris, skorts, or skirts. All shorts, slacks, capris, skorts, and skirts must be uniform.
Shirts: Boys and girls may wear navy polo with khaki trim, hunter green polo with khaki trim, solid navy, solid green, solid burgundy polo, or solid white polo. All polo shirts will have the Saint Stephen’s Intermediate School or Saint Stephen's Episcopal School logo on them.
Sweatshirts/jackets: All sweaters, jackets, and sweatshirts must be solid or with the Saint Stephen’s logo. No other logos are permitted. The color must be navy, hunter green, burgundy, or white and must match the uniform colors. For colder days, students may wear an outer coat of their choice. These coats may not be worn in the classroom.
Spirit Days: Every Friday is Spirit Day for Intermediate School students. Students are encouraged to wear their CURRENT year spirit shirt or they may wear their collared uniform shirt if they prefer. All other components of the daily dress code remain intact. On specially designated days, students may wear Freddy Falcon spirit shirts, musical spirit shirts, or another Saint Stephen’s spirit shirt.
Additional Dress Code Guidelines:

Game Days for Student Athletes: All Intermediate School student athletes participating on any Saint Stephen’s Club/JV/ or Varsity team may wear their Saint Stephen’s uniform jersey on game days to show their falcon pride.
Dress Down Days: Specific days will be set aside for students to wear nice jeans (no holes, rips, or tears) and appropriate tops, such as college/university tee shirts. Field trips, which may carry specific dress-down guidelines for comfort, functionality, and safety, will be communicated by the Division Director and teachers.
Dress Up Days: In general, this does not apply to Intermediate School during the school day. Students should adhere to the daily dress code.
