Indoor / Outdoor Shoes

As the weather gets warmer students often wear sandals or loose slip-on footwear to school. This can make participation in vigorous activities in our gym classes and on the playground difficult and unsafe. We ask for your cooperation to ensure your child has a proper pair of indoor shoes at school that are suitable for physical activity.

It is expected that all students will remove their wet and dirty outdoor footwear when they enter the school. Please label all footwear to minimize loss.

Dressed To Learn at Dr. Oakley

Dr. Oakley School is committed to being a school of character. The Calgary Board of Education (Administration Regulation 6010 - Standards of Dress and Grooming) states that students should follow standards of dress and grooming as set by the principal and his/her staff. We expect student dress and grooming to reflect Dr. Oakley School as a place or work and learning. The criteria for dress/grooming include:

No clothing with violent images and/or disrespectful, rude or profane slogans/words

  • Proper footwear must be worn at all times
  • Appropriate for learning
  • Appropriateness for Belly shirts, tube tops, halter tops or tops with thin straps and/or exposed
  • shoulders
  • Visible underwear
  • Short shorts, skirts and skorts that are shorter than mid-thigh
  • Slip-ons, flip flops, ‘heelies’, cleats or platform shoes on the playground or in the gym
  • Hats or head coverings may be worn in the classroom at the teacher’s discretion – no hats allowed in hallways, library or lunchroom, excluding those worn for religious purposes.
  • Heavy, evening style make-up, perfumes or body sprays
  • Unsafe jewelry such as dangling or large hoop earrings, long necklaces or chains that may get caught on play equipment
  • Unsafe clothing such as extremely baggie or ripped clothing or clothing with strings that may get caught on play equipment

Parents are asked to work with their children to help them make good choices about dressing appropriately for learning at school. Students will be respectfully asked to find suitable clothing if their dress is inappropriate and parents may be notified if necessary.
