All students are expected to follow the complete dress code. When a uniform violation occurs the first time, a verbal warning will be given. The second time, a uniform slip will be issued as a notice so the parent can help the child correct the violation and sign and return the slip to the teacher. Further violations of the dress code may result in the student losing recess, the student having to write the uniform rule that is a problem so he/she is more aware of what must be corrected, and/ or notification of the parents by the teacher or principal to resolve the problem. Parents will be called to pick up their child when uniform violations are not corrected.
