Dress Code

We ask students to use good judgement in considering what to wear for school. Student attire is unacceptable if it:

  • Makes other students or staff feel uncomfortable
  • Is upsetting to other students or staff
  • Is unsafe

Please note that outdoor clothing needs to be left in lockers during instructional hours. This includes hats and tuques. Please note also that attire for school needs to be more conservative than what might be acceptable for a visit to a friend’s
house or a trip to the beach.

In accordance with CBE Administrative Regulation 6010, decisions as to what constitutes acceptable clothing are made at the discretion of school administration. Students with excessively revealing or other unacceptable attire may be required to change clothing, be kept in the office area, or be sent home in order to dress appropriately. 

Physical Education

The school has David Thompson PE t-shirts and shorts available for purchase on a cost-recovery basis. Students may choose to bring their own PE clothing but  please ensure that such attire is in school colours: red t-shirts and black shorts.  This allows us to identify our students when we are outside the building.

With a large number of students sharing two locker rooms and having identical gym  strip, it is hard to tell things apart, and difficult not to mix things up. We strongly suggest you label the outside of your t-shirt and shorts (on the crest provided),  not on the inside tags, as they are easy to cut off.
