Winter’s Coming

As winter is creeping upon us, we ask that you plan for your child’s winter-wear. All students must wear boots and snow pants to school as soon as we have the first snow fall. They must bring their shoes to school as they will not be permitted to wear boots in the classroom. If they have forgotten their shoes, they will need to leave their boots at the classroom door and remain in class with their socks. 

Dress Code

Students must adhere to the dress code as stated in the agenda and approved by Governing Board. Students must not wear jogging pants to school, unless it is for Phys ed class.   Girls must refrain from wearing leggings/tights as pants. According to our dress code regulation, all students must wear their school cardigan, if they need to wear a sweater indoors.  Please note that blue hoodies are not permitted to be worn in school.
