Dress Code for Non-Uniform Days

Non-uniform days at Holy Trinity are a privilege for our students.  In keeping with the values of self-respect and respect for others, students must dress in an appropriate fashion.


On Non-Uniform Days, DO NOT WEAR:

  • Clothes that display scenes or words of violence, sex, drugs, alcohol or with racist overtones

  • Pants worn below the waist

  • Bare midriffs

  • Low cut blouses or shirts

  • Extra thin spaghetti strapped blouses/dresses

  • Muscle shirts

  • Short shorts

  • Jeans may have rips or frays, however, the expectations regarding school values on modesty remain.  School administration reserves the right to determine appropriate dress.



Uniforms

Expected Behaviours:

  • Students are expected to be in compliance with the uniform as outlined in the student handbook.

  • Students who report to school out of uniform will be supported by being offered a loan of the missing uniform item(s).

  • Parents may be contacted to bring in the missing uniform piece(s).

  • Students may be required to work in the office with assignments sent down from the classroom teachers.

Reasons for Expected Behaviours:

  • STUDENTS WHO ENROLL AT HOLY TRINITY DO SO WITH A FULL AWARENESS OF THE UNIFORM REQUIREMENTS.  THEREFORE, BY CHOOSING THIS SCHOOL, YOU IMPLICITLY AGREE TO ABIDE BY YOUR INITIAL COMMITMENT.

  • Staff and parents regard the uniform as a means of creating a distinct school identity.  By not respecting the dress code, you undermine that goal.

  • The uniform is intended to support a safe school environment.

  • Staff members are expected to enforce the uniform so each student is responsible to all staff members to be in uniform.

Consequences of Misbehaviours:

  • Students who arrive out of uniform will not be admitted to class.

  • Repeated infractions will be dealt with through progressive discipline, including reminders, parent contact, detentions, etc.

  • Students who are dressed inappropriately for non-uniform days will be asked to go home and change.
