Dressed to Learn
Marion Carson School is committed to being a school of character. “Dressed to learn”, for us, means that we choose clothing that is appropriate for learning in a school setting. In light of the above, the following are examples of
unacceptable dress at Marion Carson School:
- Clothing with violent images and/or disrespectful, rude or profane slogans/words
- Belly shirts, tube tops, halter tops or tops with thin straps and/or exposed shoulders
- Visible underwear
- Short shorts, skirts and skorts that are shorter than mid-thigh
- Slip-ons, flip flops, heelies, cleats or platform shoes on the playground equipment or in the gym
- Hats or head coverings worn in indoor classroom settings excluding those worn for religious purposes
- Heavy, evening style make-up and/or strongly scented perfumes or body sprays
- Unsafe jewelry such as dangling or large hoop earrings, long necklaces or chains that may get caught on play equipment
- Unsafe clothing such as extremely baggie or ripped clothing or clothing with strings that may get caught on play equipment
Indoor Shoes Required
To ensure safety during daily physical education activities, students must have a pair of inside non-marking running shoes that are kept at school. Having a pair of inside shoes helps to keep our school clean.
Dressing for the Weather
Proper dress for students in cold weather during the winter is encouraged, as students will be outside for recess as often as possible if weather permits. Students go outside in weather as cold as -20°C. Students should be sent to school with a winter jacket, mitts or gloves, a hat and boots. Your support in this matter is greatly appreciated.
