Dressing for Success

At Ramsay School, we respect individual’s needs to feel comfortable and fashionable in their clothing choices.  Some of the styles of today’s society are not acceptable at an elementary school.  We would ask that parents check what their children are wearing before they go to school to ensure that they are dressed appropriately.  Make sure that under-garments are covered and that their midriff is not showing. Clothing with profanity, reference to drugs and/or alcohol or inappropriate remarks are not acceptable at our school.  If there are any issues with clothing that present a significant concern, we expect parents will work with the school to help solve the problem. 

Indoor Shoes

We are proud of our school and would like to maintain an optimal indoor environment for students. As a result, we require that students have shoes or boots for outdoor wear, as well as non-marking shoes which are appropriate for physical activity and indoor wear only.  These shoes must remain at the school. This is a safety requirement when there are fire drills, reduces dust and dirt in the school, and assists us in keeping our school clean and polished.  

Be Weather Ready

The weather in Calgary can be unpredictable.  Students are expected to dress appropriately for the weather. Boots, a jacket, mitts and a hat should be worn in the winter. Please note that if the temperature is -20c, students will remain inside for recess and be invited in in the morning before school.  A rain coat and appropriate outdoor footwear should be worn in rainy conditions.
