Dress and Attire


  • Students are expected to dress in a manner which reflects the educational nature of the LDSS school community. Clothes with offensive language or graphics are unacceptable. Personal property such as clothes, backpacks, or car bumper stickers must comply with the school expectations. Revealing or suggestive clothing is inappropriate in a learning community.
  • Backpacks are not permitted in the classroom. Students must bring only the material they require to class.
  • Students are expected to wear the appropriate gym uniform during physical education classes.


Link to Success

  • School is not a place for revealing or suggestive clothing. Appearance and behaviour reflect good judgement and respect for self and others. All headgear, with the exception of hats (i.e. bandanas, sunglasses, hoods, etc.), must be removed when inside the school, except where required for religious or medical reasons.
  • No headgear is permitted during an assembly.
  • Headgear within the classroom or library is at the discretion of the teacher.
  • Backpacks are a health and safety issue and restrict the flow of pedestrian traffic.

Possible Consequences

  • Students will be asked to change into more appropriate clothes.
  • Persistent noncompliance with the dress code will result in further consequences (detentions or suspension).
  • The administration, in consultation with the teacher, will make all decisions about the dress code.
