Dress Code (revised May 2018)

Our School Dress Code was revised with input from students, staff, and parents. Students, staff, parents and volunteers are required to wear appropriate, comfortable, and safe clothing that is neat, clean, and in good taste.  Clothing must be appropriate for all school activities (e.g., raising your hand to answer a question, bending over to pick up something from the floor, etc.).

Dress code expectations are:

  • Hats/hoods should not be worn inside the school.
  • Tops should have straps that are thicker than spaghetti straps, with the exception of sundresses for primary students, and be long enough to be tucked in, even when bending over. Bra straps should not be showing. No muscle shirts.
  • Bottoms must be appropriate (i.e., thumb length and no rips that are above that).
  • Footwear should be worn at all times. Students need to have indoor and outdoor footwear.
  • Winter coats and/or outdoor boots are not to be worn in class.
  • Undergarments must not be visible. Shorts may be necessary under skirts or dresses.
  • Writing or graphics on clothing must be appropriate.

Where a disagreement arises, staff will decide on the appropriate course of action to ensure fairness and respect for all students. These guidelines may be changed at the discretion of the Principal and are reviewed on an annual basis.
