School Uniform/Dress Code

School Uniform/Dress Code

The standard of dress is set by the good judgment and discretion of our parents. If the school is to be a special place and the students are to develop a sense of dignity and seriousness about learning, then it follows that our style of dress should reflect that standard.

†   Full length T-shirts with a sleeve (no muscle shirts or cut-off T-shirts are allowed for regular class or gym wear);

†   Strapless shirts or any top that leaves the shoulders or midriff bare are not to be worn at school;

†   Students are able to wear shorts provided they are modest. The school expects that students wear a decent walking short. No short-shorts, cut-off jeans;

†   Pants are to be worn at the waist. Undergarments should not be visible.  Torn or ragged jeans, cut-off shorts, are not acceptable;

†   Shorts/skirts must be of modest cut and proportions;

†   Clothing or decorations associated with inappropriate messaging is not permitted on school grounds or at school sponsored functions;

†   Hats/Caps and sunscreen should be used during warm weather seasons;

†   Closed toe shoes (i.e. running shoes) provide the greatest flexibility and safety while at school.  Students are strongly encouraged to avoid wearing sandals, flip flops, etc. while at school;

†   Winter clothing expectations:  All students are always expected to dress appropriately to participate fully in all learning.  Winter coats, hats, gloves and boots are expected for all students in Kindergarten to Grade 8.  It is strongly recommended that Kindergarten to Grade 6 students wear snow pants to school;
