Dress Code: Marin Catholic students are expected to dress in a manner appropriate for school. General appearance should not blatantly or subtly promote unhealthy or negative attitudes, practices, or lifestyles. While on campus students are expected to be neatly groomed, modestly dressed, and boys clean-shaven. Any clothing that is torn, grayed, stained, inappropriately patched, or in a state of disrepair, as well as extremely faddish or of military attire, is unacceptable. Moderate hairstyles and colors are expected. Hair must fall within the normal range of color. For boys, acceptable length is to the collar. All students must be clean and well groomed at all times. The Summer School Administrator will determine whether specific clothing and/or jewelry are appropriate for school.
Drop-off & Pick-up: Students should be dropped-off in, and picked-up from, the lower parking lot or in front of the gymnasium ONLY. Cars picking up students before and after school should form TWO WAITING LINES in the closest two right lanes in front of the gym with cars PULLED UP to the white line. NO STOPPING is allowed in the left outside lane (closest to Sir Francis Drake Blvd.).
The upper parking lot should NOT be used for any drop-offs or pick-ups.
Electronic Devices: The use of cell phones and other digital devices including but not limited to PDAs, iPads, and other multifunction communication tools, iPods/iTouches and other audio music/voice players, digital and film cameras (still and video), and laser pointers, are prohibited on campus during normal school hours and may be confiscated.
Behavior: Basic to the philosophy of Marin Catholic is respect. We expect interactions between students, students and teachers, among staff members, and between parents/guardians and staff to be based on respect. Marin Catholic is committed to providing a safe, respectful environment for its staff and students.
