Dress Code

Indoor Footwear

We ask that parents have their children bring an extra pair of shoes for use inside the school. A pair of running shoes appropriate for gym use would be most suitable, providing safety for your child during gym time or during a fire drill and maintaining the condition of our school floors. Removing outdoor shoes at the entrance doors helps our students keep our learning environment clean.

If your child is unable to tie their shoes, please provide Velcro fastened shoes. 

Headwear (caps, toques, hoodies, headbands)

We are requesting that students do not wear headwear inside the school for the following reasons:

Communication: When students are wearing caps, toques or have hoods, it is difficult for teachers to see their student’s faces to see their reaction to feedback or as part of communication with a student. Communication and feedback are essential for learning.

Hygiene and safety: At this time in particular (Covid) hats and caps are accessories that we only wish for owners to handle. While they may wear hats etc. outside, please ask your child to make sure they do not share hats or handle others' headwear. These items must go straight in their backpacks once re-entering the school building. If students are asked to remove their hats inside they are expected to do so respectfully.

Function: Fancy headbands (cat ears, unicorn horns, etc.) may become toys in classrooms, as well as items students ‘share’. Please ensure headbands are functional, i.e. keeping hair out of students’ eyes.

Respect: Headwear is not allowed during any group event where the national anthem will be sung, e.g., Assemblies.

Friday Wear

On Fridays our students are encouraged to dress in their School Spirit wear.

ROARS Spirit Wear

School Council asked that we survey students to find out their thoughts about Spirit Wear.  Teachers talked to their students and provided feedback to the admin team to post for families.  Students stated that...

Spirit Wear:

  • promotes community
  • makes us feel like a family
  • helps us remember what we believe
  • shows others that we love our school

When asked what types of spirit wear they would like:

  • t-shirts
  • hoodies
  • toques
  • necklaces
  • socks
  • pants
  • baseball hats

When asked why they are not wearing their current t-shirts:

  • too small
  • don't remember to wear them

When asked if they like to wear spirit wear:

  • most students responded with yes
  • there were a few students who said that they would prefer not too; with more conversation fit and colour came up
