Dress Code

Students’ dress at school should be suitable for a wide range of learning activities. It should allow for comfort, ease of movement and freedom from distraction to yourself and your peers in any learning situation. Just as there is a mode of dress that is suited to office work, to sports activities, or to various social or formal functions, there is also a mode of dress suited to classroom learning. 

Some clothing is just inappropriate for school. Clothing with suggestive or offensive messages or images is also not appropriate. Examples of such messages would include: profanity, drugs and alcohol, images that portray people inappropriately, etc.  Shoes must be worn at all times for both health and safety reasons. Separate gym clothing and running shoes must be worn for physical education classes and students are asked to come dressed for the weather.

Expectations for dress at school are intended to promote a positive learning atmosphere; all members of the school community are asked to support and respect these expectations. Students may be asked to change into their gym strip if their clothing is deemed inappropriate. In severe cases, arrangements will be made for students to go home to change during the school day.

One last item of note is we do not allow Heely shoes at DMC.

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL
