DRESS FOR SUCCESS
The dress code is aimed at establishing and maintaining reasonable standards of dress for all school activities. Good taste and judgment in the selection of clothing worn to school is expected. Styles in dress and grooming should be appropriate for the context of a school environment and support a safe, caring, welcoming and respectful environment for all.
- Clothing should not compromise modesty. Clothing such as spaghetti straps, halter tops, tube tops, muscle shirts, backless tops/dresses or see-through attire should not be worn at school and clothing should not be too tight or too loose. Shirts and pants must be friends (and need to meet all the time!)
- Clothing that exposes inappropriate areas shall not be worn. This includes undergarments, shoulders and midriffs. Skirts, dresses and shorts need to reach at least the mid-thigh. Pants need to be pulled up so they cover undergarments.
- Outdoor attire will be removed and kept in lockers during school hours. This includes hats, gloves, jackets, coats.
- Respectful use of spray cologne, perfume, body spray deodorant. Many people are affected by allergies to these smells.
- Clothing needs to be appropriate for classes where safety is an issue such as science labs and foods class.
- Students in grades 6-9 must change for PE. School issued PE gear is available for purchase or suitable clothing in consultation with your PE teacher must be brought from home.
- Obscenity and violence are not tolerated in our school; therefore, clothing and personal belongings with obscene sayings are not acceptable such as: drug paraphernalia/sayings, violent scenes or inappropriate messages (i.e. beer logos, sexual or drug connotation, disrespectful messages)
- Shoes must be worn at all times in case of an evacuation drill. Indoor shoes must be non-marking.
- Hats will not be worn in the school.
Any inappropriately dressed students will be approached by a same gender adult who will discuss their choices and come up with an appropriate solution.
