At Royal Oak School, we will attempt to capture the spirit of a dress code by noting that school staff and administration will request that students refrain from wearing any clothing that causes a distraction to the learning environment. Please know that the school will simply be responding to the distraction and that we are not passing judgment.
The expectations below are provided as an example of our experience in this area.
Shorts of adequate length are considered appropriate school wear. Students should wear clothing that fully cover undergarments. Bathing suits or shirts displaying inappropriate language or gestures should not be worn.
Students need to come to school dressed appropriately for the cold, Canadian weather. Outdoor recess is held on all but extremely inclement weather days (Blue Days - minus 20). It is important that students have clothing that is warm and comfortable and preferably which they are able to put on and take off without assistance. Once inside the building outdoor hats and shoes are removed.
