Alexander Muir Dress Code Policy

As the weather begins to heat up we would like to remind our students and families of our AMPS Dress Code Policy. This policy is reviewed each year by our school council. Please take a few minutes to review it with your child(ren). If you have any questions please contact the school and speak with the Principal/Vice-Principal at any time.


Respect for self and others are evident when students dress in a suitable and proper manner for all school activities. The dress code applies to all students at all grade levels.
