The Appropriate Dress Code consists of solid white and navy-blue garments (e.g., plain white top, navy blue bottom, or navy-blue top and navy-blue bottom).  NO DENIM.

Winter:  Students are to dress warmly for winter. Clothing should include: winter coats, hats, mittens or gloves, scarves and boots.  When boots are worn to school, alternative footwear should be worn in school.

Summer:  In warm months, students should dress modestly.  Hats can be worn outside but are to be removed upon entry to the school.

Bandanas/gang related colours or paraphernalia are not permitted on school property.

Students are to be attired properly for a safe physical education class. Running shoes for gym use should not be black soled as they mark up the gym floor.

Makeup and jewelry are not appropriate for elementary students. Excessive make-up is not allowed.

If students are not adhering to the dress code, parents will be notified, and students may be requested to go home to change.
