Dress Code

Renfrew Collegiate expects that all students will dress in a way that is appropriate for the school day or for any school-sponsored event.  Student dress choices should respect the intent to sustain a community that is inclusive of a diverse range of identities. 

  • Students must wear a shirt (with fabric in the front, back, and on the sides under the arms) AND bottoms (for example, sweatpants, leggings, a dress, skirt or shorts) AND footwear.
  • Any clothing bearing offensive language or pictures promoting alcohol, drugs, sex, or racism are not permitted.
  • Clothes must be worn in such a way that genitals, buttocks and chests are covered.  In addition, all underclothing must be covered (narrow visible straps are an exception).
  • Teachers will determine if hats are to be worn in class.

Dress Code Enforcement:  To ensure effective and equitable enforcement of this dress code, school staff shall enforce the dress code consistently using the requirements below.  Students in violation of the dress code will be provided three (3) options to be dressed more to code during the school day:

  • Students will be asked to put on their own alternative clothing, if already available at school, to be dressed more to code for the remainder of the day.
  • Students will be provided with temporary school clothing to be dressed ore to code for the remainder of the day.
  • If necessary, students' parents may be called during the school day to bring alternative clothing for the student to wear for the remainder of the day
