School Uniform

Uniforms help promote safety, ease of identification, equality, school pride, positive behaviour and the development of community. Furthermore, a school uniform presents a professional image and distinguishes our students in the community. All REIA students and parents/guardians must sign a Uniform Policy Agreement stating that they agree to follow the policy throughout the school year.

The Uniform must be worn in the building during the academic day, evening or weekend classes and school events. Students are expected to dress in a neat, clean, tailored, and presentable manner, according to the uniform guidelines. Students who are out of uniform will be referred to the behaviour staff and parents will be contacted. Consequences range from Administrative warning to out-of-school suspension. A student will also be required to change into uniform clothing if available in the school uniform closet.

Students are required to purchase all uniform clothing/items from the designated REIA vendor. Items purchased from other vendors will not be allowed. Students must purchase their own black dress shoes as they are not provided with the uniform and are not available for purchase through the designated REIA vendor.

Uniform Maintenance

Students are responsible to clean and wash their uniforms, and must wear clean clothes daily. Students must keep their uniform in good repair and must replace any torn, frayed, stained or damaged uniform items. Students who out-grow their uniform will be required to purchase uniform items in the appropriate size. No tailoring is permitted, which will change the style or appearance of any of the uniform items of clothing except for the hemming of pants. REIA students are responsible for following the uniform dress code.
