Neil McNeil Uniform
the Neil uniform is an obligation and an expectation of all Neil students. Ministry of Education regulations and TCDSB
policies require each school community to develop a Uniform Policy which the
Principal, Vice Principal, Catholic School Advisory Council and staff are
expected, by Board of Trustees to enforce strictly. Students are expected to wear the Neil
McNeil uniform properly, exhibiting pride, neatness and good grooming. Adherence to the uniform guidelines will be
determined by the Administration and school staff.
Consequences for Non-compliance
If the student is not in uniform, parents will be contacted
and the student will be sent home to obtain their proper uniform item(s) and
then return to school. In an extreme
situation, the Administration will provide a note for the student.
On these days, in addition to complying with the guidelines
above, students are expected to dress appropriately and in good taste. In the event of a discrepancy, the Principal
will determine what is appropriate.
