Dress Code

The Calgary Board of Education states that students should follow AR 6010 – Standards of Dress & Grooming as set by the principal and staff.  Student clothing should reflect the school’s purpose as a place of learning and work. School administration is given the authority to require any student who is considered to be inappropriately dressed for school to change into something appropriate for school, or to return home and change before being admitted to class.

As part of the expectation of courtesy and respect, all students are required to adhere to reasonable and respectable standards in dressing and grooming for a focused learning environment. Clothing worn by students needs to facilitate comfortable interaction within the school community. Dress should be appropriate for the school setting, and conducive to a safe environment.

The above guidelines work to reflect the focused working and learning environment at Griffith Woods. We expect students to adhere to the following reasonable standards of dress and grooming for an educational and workplace environment.

  • Shoes must be worn at all times for health and safety reasons. Ensure that they are dry and clean before entering the school. If shoes are wet or dirty please remove them and wear an inside pair.
  • Outdoor clothing and footwear are to be kept in your student coatroom areas or lockers.
  • Clothing and lapel buttons with violent or distasteful slogans, alcohol logos, sayings or pictures are unacceptable.
  • The physical education department requires a change of clothing and running shoes for students in grades 7 to 9.

Outdoor/Indoor Footwear

Grade 7-9 students are required to have a pair of running shoes for gym activities. For Kindergarten to Grade 6 students we suggest a pair of runners serve as indoor shoes. Please clearly label all footwear to minimize loss.

Dressing for the Weather

Students must come to school wearing the appropriate clothing for the weather. Often school activities and events require students to be outside. Read more in Cold Weather Days.
