The Calgary Board of Education states that students should follow standards of dress and grooming as set by the principal and staff. Dress and grooming should reflect the school’s purpose as a place of learning and a place of work. School administration is given the authority to require any student who is considered to be inappropriately dressed for school to change into something appropriate for school, or to return home and change before being admitted to class.

The following rules apply:

  • “Underwear should be under there”. We do not want to see your underwear! All pants, shorts, and tops must ensure that underwear is not visible.
  • “No boobs, butts, or bellies”. Clothing should be such that it covers these areas. Shirts must cover the belly and ensure no inappropriate cleavage exposure. Shorts and skirts must cover the bottom.
  • “Keep it Classy”. Boys must wear sleeved shirts (no muscle shirts). 
  • “It’s not that cold in here!” Outdoor jackets are not to be worn during the school day.
  • “We want to see your eyes!” Hoods are to be kept down during the school day.
  • “Keep it Safe”.
  • Footwear must be suitable (close-toed shoes are required in PE, and in shop areas).
  • Hair is neat, well-groomed and does not represent a hazard in work areas.
  • Special protective clothing in shops must be worn as required (safety glasses, aprons, ear protection).
  • “Halloween is only once a year!” Appropriate make-up (no marking of self with markers).
  • “We’re Respectful Raptors!” Hats need to be removed at the student locker and stored in the locker.
  • “Keep it Clean!” Clothing that display offensive language or images (alcohol, drugs, gangs, violence, or sexual innuendo) is not acceptable.
  • “Wakey! Wakey!” It is daytime and time to learn! Please leave your pajamas and slippers at home.
