Students are expected to support standards of dress and grooming which reflect the school’s purpose as a place of learning and a place of work. Students should be sensitive to the values and expectations of the community and should strive to offend no one by their dress. The following guidelines should be observed.

  • Appropriateness for specific activities - Special dress may be required in physical education, laboratory, or shop programs.
  • Appropriateness for the school setting - Clothing must not display inappropriate or offensive language, slogans, or messages.
  • Modesty - Brief, beach-style, or revealing clothing is inappropriate.
  • Safety and Health - Shoes must be worn at all times; outdoor clothing should not be worn in class; safety equipment must be worn as required in certain classes.

Students whose dress is inappropriate will be expected to change their clothing, and may be asked to go home, before returning to class. 

Our expectations for dress at William Aberhart High School are intended to promote a positive learning atmosphere and we ask all members of our school community to support and respect these expectations.

Physical Education Clothing

Students are required to wear appropriate clothing for each activity. Failure to bring the correct clothing may result in the student being excluded from the class activity and being provided with an alternative activity. Students who habitually come unprepared will lose participation marks.
