Dress Code

Ottewell School is a professional place for working and learning, so students are expected to dress in a neat, respectful way that reflects our school culture which emphasizes pride, learning, and high expectations.


  • Clothes are clean.
  • Slogans on all clothing are positive and appropriate for the school setting
  • Tops and Shirts must come down to cover  the top of pants, skirts, or shorts
  • Skirts and shorts are appropriate for the school setting
  • All items designated as underwear are kept under cover (including when bending down)
  • Appropriate non-scuffing indoor footwear is worn at all times
  • Head covers are to be worn for medical or religious reasons only
  • Jewelry is limited and not distracting
  • Make up is minimal and tasteful
  • Eyes are visible and not covered by hair during instructional time
  • Physical Education clothing includes any of the following: track suits, athletic shorts, sweat pants, T-shirts, or sweatshirts.  (Students are expected to have a change of clothes for PE classes.)  Running shoes are a requirement for every Physical Education class.


The following items are examples of dress considered inappropriate for school:

  • Clothing that reveals undergarments and/or a student’s stomach, chest, upper thigh or buttocks
  • Clothing with inappropriate or negative language, symbols that condone or promote drugs, alcohol, sexually suggestive or aggressive behaviour or obscene language or phrases
  • Blouses or shirts that show the belly button or any other part of the bare stomach or back and low slung pants which allow underwear to show
  • Muscle shirts, halter tops, spaghetti straps or inappropriate cut outs
  • Industrial/pet chains around the neck, wrists, or waist or chains attached to pants or wallets
  • Spiked belts, bracelets and necklaces
  • Body or facial painting
  • Pajamas, bedroom slippers, loungewear, net stockings, safety pins for closures or as ornaments
  • See through blouses, skirts or pants
  • Outdoor clothing in class, including coats, jackets, hats, gloves
  • Inappropriate low cut blouses or shirts

 When a staff member identifies that a student may be inappropriately dressed, school administration will be notified and the student may be asked to speak with an administrator to discuss changes that might be required. If necessary, school t-shirts or sweat pants will be supplied for the day to students whose attire is inappropriate. Repeat offenses may result in the student receiving progressive discipline interventions.

 **The final determination about the appropriateness of student dress lies with the administrative staff of the school. If students are not sure if their attire complies with the School Dress Code - bring other clothing, just in case.


Snack Shack

At Ottewell School we are pleased to offer students access to our Snack Shack every day during the lunch break.  We provide a variety of healthy food choices for students and staff to enjoy for lunch.  We have fresh milk and hot water for students who may need it to cook their lunch.  Microwaves are also available for students to heat their lunch.
