Appropriate Attire for School

The use of common sense in the manner of dress is expected. School is a place of learning, and we expect that you will dress appropriately. To promote an environment of tolerance and respect for diversity, we refrain from wearing symbols, clothing or accessories that display offensive or discriminatory attitudes, or membership to a fraternity, secret organization or gang. 

You may wear hats in the hallways and common areas of the school. In classrooms, each teacher will make the individual or collective decision with students about wearing hats. It is expected that you honour the guidelines of the various classrooms you enter. As a sign of respect or safety, hats will be removed during exams, and assemblies / ceremonies of a more formal nature. You must be recognizable and easily identifiable at all times. Under some circumstances, if clothing/grooming poses threat, discomfort or risk to self or others, teachers will request that you change. Teachers and student leaders will monitor the success of these new guidelines and may make changes with your input.

Every effort is made from the school staff to provide a balance between freedom of expression and upholding reasonable guidelines for appropriate dress at school, and to do so in a fair and consistent manner. We appreciate your good judgment and discernment in personal choices and grooming, and to host conversations as a family regarding how you represent yourself, your family and your school in the public eye. Gender-specific expectations have been eliminated, in order to focus on the most important aspect of school life – learning, self-confidence, and building strong relationships with each other.
