City Terrace Elementary School
School Uniform Policy
The purpose of this Student Dress Code is to ensure that students wear appropriate apparel to school. This helps promote a safe school environment. The Shared Decision Making Council revised the School-wide Discipline and Safety Plan in 2009-2010.
The main reasons for implementing a uniform policy are:
- Students from City Terrace will be easily recognized walking to and from school.
- Students will feel a sense of belonging to, and pride in City Terrace School.
- Students will show mutual respect for others regardless of ethnicity or financial status.
The Safe School Committee will enforce the Uniform Policy.
