Disregard of the Dress Code regulations can lead to the distraction of comparing styles, and thus, be seen as a priority; the students would be better served if healthy comparison and competition took place in the field of learning.  Students who repeatedly demonstrate disregard for the Dress Code are liable to receive a Dress Code Referral.  In the case of improper haircuts or hair color, the child’s parent will be contacted to have the situation corrected immediately.

In addition to good grooming and the proper wearing of our school uniform, it is essential that each child come to school each day having had sufficient sleep, and a nutritional breakfast. A tired body and mind makes learning very difficult.
