Appropriate Clothing

We would like to remind students and parents that children should attend school in clothing suitable for an elementary school environment. Students should avoid beach apparel and revealing clothing. Bare midriffs, cropped tops, spaghetti straps, and low-rise pants or short shorts are not appropriate for school. Underwear should not be seen. Similarly, items of clothing that have inappropriate pictures or words are not acceptable for school wear. Students will be advised to return home to change or will be given other clothing donated to the school to “cover up” if clothing is considered inappropriate. We ask parents to monitor their children’s choices before students leave for school in the morning to assist us with these guidelines. 

Indoor Running Shoes

We request that each child bring a pair of running shoes for indoor use to be kept at school and to be worn in the gym. Please mark your child’s shoes (and any other belongings) with his/her name with a permanent marker. Outdoor shoes are removed at the entrance doors to maintain a clean school. Indoor running shoes should have proper support for gym activities, a non-marking sole, and properly tied laces. If your child can not tie his/her own shoes, Velcro closings are recommended. Sandals, backless shoes, platform shoes and dress shoes are not to be worn in the gym or for outside classroom activities for safety. 

Winter Dress

Throughout the winter, all students are expected to dress appropriately for the weather conditions. Hats, mitts, coats or jackets, and boots are necessary for most winter days in Calgary. Please provide an extra sweater in your child’s backpack throughout the school year as the weather changes quickly.
