Missoula Catholic Schools Dress Code

MCS Uniform Dress Code

Navy, white or red polo shirts (with a collar) can be purchased from any retailer (Target, Walmart, Old Navy, etc.) and then taken to any embroidery business to have the SJS lettering or SJS crest embroidered on them. Some of the local embroidery shops are Stitches, Exact Image, Initial Impressions and the Shirt Shop. Land’s End (online retailer) has our school logos on file and can embroider shirts at the time you purchase them if you choose. Any sweatshirts, cardigan sweaters, vests or jackets to be worn at school must have the school logo on them as well.

Pre-made polo shirts are sold at the MCS Spirit Store located at the Foundation Office at 300 Edith Street
