Health Services

Holy Trinity Catholic School employs a part-time nurse (RN) to monitor illnesses and maintain student health records.

The school nurse develops a care plan in coordination with parents and guardians through written interviews, the education staff, and the physician, as necessary.

Dress Code

Kindergarten through Eighth Grade students wear school uniforms according to the dress code. Each student is required to have a red polo shirt with an embroidered Holy Trinity logo. These red polos are worn for School Mass (typically Wednesday mornings) and other designated days like field trips and special class activities.

Preschool and Transitional Kindergarten students are not required to wear school uniforms. However, students should dress in clothing appropriate for play. Students should wear tennis shoes or other shoes with rubber soles, and avoid wearing flip-flops, other loose-fitting shoes, and jewelry.

Purchasing Uniforms

Purchase uniforms online from the Lands’ End store or any other store if clothing items adhere to the dress code. Use school code 900140583 to shop Holy Trinity items from Lands’ End, and please allow several weeks for your order to ship.

Uniform Exchange Station

The Student Uniform Exchange Station is a new way to upcycle outgrown uniforms and support the community. All are invited to donate or take items from the exchange station.

Visit the exchange station in the hallway between the school office and the media center. Place items in the correct drawer according to size, OR search drawers for items that match your student’s needs.
