Dress Code

At Northbrae Public School, our Dress Code allows for the expression of individuality and personal choice while
sustaining a respectful learning and teaching environment for the school community.
1. Staff and students are expected to wear clothing (and jewelry) appropriate for school activities
where appropriate is defined as:
    - Free of inappropriate language and or graphics (weapons; profanity; vulgarity; remarks or images which are
discriminatory, derogatory, or offensively suggestive; advertising for products which are illegal for minors to purchase)
   - The complete covering of undergarments
2. Footwear must be appropriate for safe participation in all types of school activities and
be conducive to a positive learning environment (i.e. no slippers). Students are expected to have
indoor and outdoor footwear.
3. Running shoes with non-marking soles as well as suitable gym clothing are required for
physical education activities.
4. Sunglasses or not to be worn inside the school unless medically required.
5. Headwear is not to be worn in classrooms, lunchrooms, or while travelling to and from
classes except on special occasions as determined by the school administration.

Exceptions will be granted by the school administration for medical conditions or religious
reasons consistent with the Ontario Human Rights Code and the Canadian Charter of Rights
and Freedoms.

Finally, all students JK-8 are expected to comply with the School Dress Code, as defined, on school grounds or
while participating in school functions. Infractions of this Dress Code will result in students being asked to
cover/remove inappropriate attire and parents be notified in order to seek support for the policy.
