Compliance Measures:

The following measures may be taken if a student comes to school without the appropriate uniform.

  1. On the first offense, the student will be reminded of the uniform policy and a copy of the policy will be stapled in the student’s agenda informing the parents that their child was out of uniform. (A request for future compliance will also be made.)
  2. On the second offense, the student will be sent to the office and asked to contact a parent/guardian for a change of clothing. If a parent/guardian cannot be contacted the student will be provided with the necessary uniform component(s) to be worn for the remainder of the school day. A record of this second offense will be documented and an attempt to contact the parents will be made again regarding this issue.
  3. After two violations, a conference will be scheduled with parent/guardian to again explain the uniform policy so that the expectations, and rationale are fully understood.
  4. Further violations will result in other disciplinary measures. A positive approach to achieve compliance with the uniform policy will be used throughout the year.
