Dress Code

Students at Bowness High School are expected to adhere to reasonable standards in dress and grooming which reflect the school's purpose as a place of learning and a place of work. The following guidelines should help students in their selection of appropriate dress for school:

  • Safety and health - footwear must be worn at all times; special dress (coveralls, goggles, aprons, gym strip) must be worn as required in shop, laboratory or physical education programs.
  • Respectful attire appropriate for a place of learning and work - clothing must not display inappropriate or offensive language, slogans or messages including gang or drug or alcohol related connotations. Indiscreet, extreme or threatening attire will not be tolerated. The Calgary Board of Education has stated that the school has the authority to require any student with unsuitable attire to return home to change before being admitted to classes.
