Along with school spirit and pride, a dress code enhances unity and equality of students. As families come from varying economic backgrounds, a dress code helps level the economic component of what the students wear or can afford to wear. It also minimizes distractions and ensures the right tone for the classroom. The attention and emphasis remains on the children in the classroom; who they are, what they are doing, what they are feeling, and what they are learning.
Our dress code is casual, and comfortable, with white or navy tops and navy or khaki bottoms. Girls may wear shorts, pants, or skirts with golf shirts, polo shirts or blouses on top. Boys may wear pants or shorts with golf shirts, polo shirts or dress shirts. When it is chilly, a navy vest or sweater can be worn on top.
We do not require a specific line of clothing, and there are no school logos required so you should be able to find appropriate clothing where you would normally shop. Some companies that specialize in appropriate lines are Halperns, Lands End, the Gap and Children's Place. You can also find appropriate clothing at retailers such as Old Navy, Zellers and the Bay.
As a part of demonstrating personal pride, children are expected to dress in clean, well maintained, and properly fitting clothing.
It is helpful to keep an extra set of clothing at the school, especially for Casa students.
