Dress Code

Respectful School – Appropriate Attire

The CBE's Administrative Regulation 6010 – Standards of Dress and Grooming describes acceptable and unacceptable attire for students. At Wilma Hansen, our dress code complies with the CBE Regulations and is aimed at establishing and maintaining reasonable standards of dress for all school activities.

Good taste and judgment in the selection of clothing worn to school is expected.

Styles in dress and grooming become unacceptable when they are unhealthy, unsafe, offensive or distracting to others.

Clothing should be clean, tidy and appropriate for an educational setting. Safety precautions in various areas (Phys. Ed, Foods Lab, Design Lab and Science Labs) will be reviewed by classroom teachers. Shoes must be worn at all times in case of an evacuation drill. Students will be expected to change into gym strip or may be sent home to change if they do not meet these standards.

At this time, we at Wilma Hansen School consider the following to be inappropriate for a school setting:

  • Muscle shirts
  • Short shorts/skirts/dresses
  • Visible undergarments 
  • Ripped or torn clothing
  • Halter tops, tops with loose straps or spaghetti straps
  • Any tops that expose the stomach or back or cleavage and/or
  • Apparel (or accessories) that contain any offensive language, images, or paraphernalia
  • Spray cologne, perfume and body spray deodorant

Safety in the school includes being able to quickly recognize strangers in the building. With this in mind, hats, ball caps, hoodies worn over the head or other such items that interfere with the recognition of the people in the building are not permitted to be worn inside the school. 

In accordance with CBE Policy, students who do not comply with the dress code will be referred to the office and may be asked to change clothing, change into their gym strip or their home may be contacted to obtain appropriate clothing.
