It is expected that good taste and judgment will be exercised in the selection of clothing worn to school by students. Clothing such as halter-type tops, muscle type T-shirts, revealing midriffs, extremely short shorts, and clothing with inappropriate logos are not to be worn to school. Suitable footwear, which will allow students to work and play in comfort without risk to health and safety, is also expected. Students with inappropriate clothing will be asked to change or cover up with a painting t-shirt. Students are not allowed to wear hats in the school – although cultural or religious head wear are exempt from this policy. Please label all clothing items before they are worn to school. School Council offers an ongoing Oliver’s Labels fundraiser at www.Oliverslabels.com/EHS.
Dressing for the Weather
It is important children are dressed for the weather, whether if be cold, sunny, or wet. There is no specific temperature trigger for calling indoor lunch/recess - conditions are continually assessed. We are residents of the prairie and need to be both cold-aware and capable of dressing to reflect the actual weather conditions safely. Please have your student appropriately prepared to spend recess/lunch recess outdoors. Review our Cold Weather Days advisory for details on these policies.
In order to help keep our school clean, all students are expected to remove their wet and dirty outdoor footwear. As all students are required to have a pair of running shoes for gym activities, we suggest that these runners serve as indoor shoes. Please clearly label all footwear to minimize loss. Fire drills and school lockdown drills are held on a regular basis. Many drills are scheduled without warning. Therefore, students are expected to wear indoor footwear at all times.
