Dress Code

Thank you to the staff, students and parents for your support in redrafting our KP Dress Code, which will be in effect until the end of the school year. Updates to these rules will be determined at our School Council meetings this fall.

 Kensal Park encourages students and staff to express their individuality and personal choice through their manner of dress. In doing so, all students and staff are expected to dress in a respectful manner that is appropriate for school learning activities.

 

Clothing choices will ensure the following:

  • Footwear is safe for school activities (ie running shoes for gym class).
  • Headwear is not worn inside the school, except for religious or medical reasons.
  • The groin area, buttocks and nipples are covered by clothing in an opaque material (i.e. no see through fabric).
  • Vulgar, profane, or discriminatory language or imagery is not visible on clothing or accessories. This includes the advertising of products that are illegal for minors to purchase. (i.e. images of marijuana leaves).
  • Clothing must be appropriate for P.E. and QDPA activities.
  • Underwear should not be worn as outerwear.

In the event of a dress code violation, teachers will discreetly address the issue with the student. Repeated dress code violations will be referred to administration.
