Uniforms

OLPH School students wear an official school uniform as strictly defined by a definite uniform policy.  To ensure that every OLPH student is in uniform according to code, all uniform items must be purchased from the designated uniform company, Dennis Uniforms.  In August, the Parent Club holds a 2-day Uniform Exchange where parents can participate in a moneysaving uniform exchange.
