Students are permitted to wear the Bishop Ireton approved black fleece jacket that is sold in the school bookstore. Non-approved jackets, hoodies, or any other garments worn over the school uniform will be confiscated and returned to the student at the end of the school year. Repeated violations of this guideline may result in a Saturday detention and/or other disciplinary action. Students must also wear their uniform polo or sweater/sweater vest under the fleece jacket.
