Is there a standard of dress?
- Yes, for elementary and middle school students. St. Paul Lutheran School is uniquely set apart as a Christian school. As such, we believe that a standard of dress contributes to a more positive school climate with a focus on academics, a feeling of community among all of our students, and an individual's ability to let one's personality shine through without the distraction of competitive clothing. The basic standard of dress is pants, skirts, shorts, skorts, or jumpers that are blue, black, khaki, or stone colored. Shirts may be any color but must be turtleneck or polo style. There should not be any logos on the shirts with the exception of the official St. Paul logo.
Is transportation provided?
- Our students live in several counties, including but not limited to Washtenaw, Lenawee, Wayne, and Livingston, and a variety of cities, including Ann Arbor, Dexter, Chelsea, Walled Lake, Brighton, Northville, Livonia, Canton, Saline, Milan, Ypsilanti, Bellville, and Manchester. Therefore, bus services are not available to our students. Many families use carpools for transportation. The school office can assist you after enrollment with obtaining a potential carpool list.
