Westmount School is focused on the academic and personal growth of our students. Students are expected to conduct themselves in accordance with the School Student Code of Conduct developed by school leadership, staff, students, and community. We ask that staff, students and parents dress in a manner that respects the community. Students are expected to present themselves in a way that enhances the school’s learning climate and respects the age range and diversity of our school community. Some current fashion may be inappropriate for the school setting, so students and parents are asked to use good judgement when choosing school attire. Clothing that promotes drugs, alcohol, violent images or language, hate or prejudice, pornography, images or language that create a hostile or intimidating environment or that threatens the health and safety of staff or students is prohibited. Clothing must also meet safety requirements for activities such as PE, CTF programs and labs. Students regularly participate in outdoor activities as well as practice safety drill procedures. Students are expected to come to school with appropriate footwear for the weather conditions and in the event, we need to evacuate the building. Students who do not follow the recommended dress guidelines will be asked to put on alterative clothing, or at the discretion of administration, may be sent home.
