Dress Code

Dressing for Success

Chaparral School is the place of work for our students and staff and as such all members of our learning community are asked to dress in a professional manner that supports active learning in an elementary school setting. The following guidelines promote a culture of respect by encouraging sensitivity to the values and expectations of our diverse community.

  • Dressing appropriately for the weather and for the learning tasks. Being outdoors for Physical-Education, field-trips and recess often requires extra layers, snow pants, warm coats, mitts, and head wear.
  • Choosing print and graphics that are respectable and appropriate for young children.
  • All students are asked to have a pair of indoor shoes, as well as the outdoor shoes/boots that are worn to school. Indoor shoes should be a pair of running shoes with non-marking soles so that they can be used for Physical-Education class.
  • Please label all items of clothing using permanent marker as we try to return lost items to their owners
  • Students are asked to remove hats and hoods inside classrooms (reasonable exceptions apply), and to ensure that shirts or jackets are available to be worn over tank tops.

RT @ZooSchoolyyc: How do we teach the value and importance of our connection to all living things? Maybe by getting to know our local neighbours? This is a concept our Chris Akkermann students are just beginning to understand. Have you spotted this local winter bird? https://t.co/W2MjY26FrR
