Fairview School Dress Policy

Uniform Requirements

TLC Uniform Policy

Casual Day

Casual Days are a privilege not a right the School has the right to cancel or re-schedule casual days as they see fit.

On casual day Fairview students’ dress should be appropriate for a professional learning environment. They should dress for a wide variety of learning activities and should be such that it allows for ease of movement, comfort and freedom from distractions for self and peers, in any given learning situation. Just as there is a mode of dress suited to office work, to the playing field or gymnasium, to various social or formal functions; there is also a mode of dress suited to each subject area and classroom. We ask that parents support the school with this policy, as we understand that your own
expectations for home may be different. The following reasonable guidelines have been added to help understand our expectations:

  • Clothing that is not suited for a professional/business environment, (such as, but not limited to; beach-wear, muscle shirts, halter-tops, tube tops, spaghetti strap tops, short-shorts, tank tops, bandeau bras, miniskirts, and t-shirts with offensive slogans or images) are not permitted.
  • Clothing that promotes illegal substances (drugs or alcohol) are also not allowed. At minimum, skirts, dresses and shorts need to reach the end of the student’s fingertips (when extended) in length.
  • Undergarments, cleavage and midriffs must be concealed at all times. Pants should be worn pulled up to cover underwear. Tops which show cleavage or mid-riffs and low rise pants that do not cover a student’s
  • bottom are not appropriate for a middle school. Leggings, if worn, must be accompanied by a longer shirt or tunic.
  • Chains and heavy jewelry with spikes or sharp studs are not permitted to be worn in school.
  • Shoes must be worn at all times.
  • Sunglasses, hats, caps, hoods or bandanas are not to be worn in the school, except for special events that are predetermined by the school.

Appropriate clothing is expected to be worn by all members of our school community in all possible school activities such as dances, extracurricular activities and field trip experiences.

It is the students’ responsibility to ensure they follow the uniform schedule, as there are consequences for students who do not follow the uniform schedule carefully.  Homeroom Teachers will notify student and parent/guardian with regards to uniform concerns. Unaddressed concerns may result in a ‘Uniform Infraction”. Students may be at risk of losing the option to dress casual on casual days. 

As stated in the Standard of Dress and Grooming Policy 6010, school principals are given the authority to require any student not conforming to the regulations to change or return home and change into suitable clothing (such as gym strip) before being readmitted to class.  Dress and uniform expectations must be followed during any school-related activity, including school events and field trips.


Physical Education Dress Code

It is required that students grade 5-9 change every day into gym strip.  It is highly recommended that students purchase a Fairview gym strip. Shorts and a T-shirt can be purchased for $30.  P.E. clothing needs to be taken home on a regular basis to be washed. Students must wear proper non-marking athletic shoes with the laces properly tied for P.E. class (not skater type shoes as they do not provide adequate support and are not always able to be properly tied). 

Outdoor Activity

Students will be informed well ahead of time when they are scheduled to be outside for P.E. It would demonstrate responsibility and preparedness by bringing a sweatshirt and sweatpants to wear over gym strip when required. For hygienic reasons, students can not wear their TLC sweater for P.E. activity that they are wearing for the school day. It is a great idea to store these extra clothes in your gym bag or P.E. locker. It is always an expectation that you are prepared for
P.E. class. The only exception to this rule would be if a winter jacket is required, at which time a teacher will direct the student to stop at their hall locker.

Lost And Found

Found P.E clothing will be placed in the lost and found bins in the lower gym at the bottom of the staircase on the left. These bins are labeled “lost and found.” It is the student’s responsibility to find their lost gear and may need to participate in their regular clothing until they have found or replaced their gym strip.
