SJAM Dress Code Reminder

After the winter that looked like it wouldn’t end, perhaps we’ve forgotten about some of the important warmer weather dress code rules here at SJAM.  The transition to summer clothing can create some issues related to student dress code.  With that in mind, remember that going to school is like going to work. Students are expected to dress in a manner appropriate for a learning/working environment.

Students will abide by school dress code policies as outlined in the SJAM Student Handbook:

  • Clothing must cover the torso in an appropriate manner.
  • The showing of undergarments (e.g., bras, bra straps, muscle shirts, boxer shorts) is never appropriate.
  • Offensive clothing or logos (e.g., condoning drugs, alcohol, inappropriate language or innuendo, gang affiliation or discrimination) is never appropriate.
  • Bandanas and gang “colours” are not permitted.
  • Hats are permitted at school but must be removed as a sign a respect during the playing of the National Anthem, during assemblies, in the Main Office and in classroom teaching areas (at the discretion of the teacher).
  • Students who are dressed inappropriately for school may be instructed to change into more appropriate clothing or may be sent home.

If you have questions or concerns regarding SJAM’s dress code, please contact the main office.
