DRESS CODE

Students in Cheder must dress in a way that mirrors the atmosphere in a classroom where Torah is being taught. The following guidelines are in place to help maintain the decorum and Chassidishe standards that are essential in Cheder. In light of the aforementioned expectations that students and Parents meet the Cheder Chabad standards, it goes without saying this applies most importantly to dress.

According to the Shulchan Aruch, a girl must dress in accordance with the Halachas of Tznius from the age of three (Likutei Sichos, Vol. 18, p. 448).  

SCHOOL UNIFORM

  • Jumper: Pre 1A –Grade 2 Navy blue jumpers. Jumpers must cover the knees fully.
  • Skirts :   Grades 3-8 navy blue pleated jumper or skirt. All skirts must be mid-calf only. Please note that this is a school uniform rule.

STUDENT DRESS CODE

The following are guidelines for after school hours. At all times a student’s dress, which may reflect personal style, in general, must also reflect the inner dignity and refinement of a Bas Chabad and a student of Cheder Chabad, specifically.

  1. Elbows and knees should be covered at all times.
  2. An appropriate neckline, one in which the collar bone, sides and back of the neck are properly covered.
  3. Skirts must cover the knees at all times.
  4. The entire leg should be covered with appropriate leg wear. Ankle socks or leggings with socks are inappropriate and may not be worn.
  5. Form fitting or tight clothing are not appropriate.  
  6.  Slits may not be worn.
  7. No attention-drawing or improper graphics on the shirt or bold lettering across the front of shirt should be worn.
  8. Hair should be refined and pulled together.

 

If it comes to our attention that a student is not conforming to these standards outside of school, Parents will be asked to meet with the principal to discuss and rectify the situation.
