The CBE Administrative Regulation 6010 – Standards of Dress & Grooming, refers to standards of dress for students. We expect student dress and grooming to reflect W.O. Mitchell as a place of work and learning. The criteria for dress/grooming include:
- safety in all activities
- appropriateness for the school environment and age of child
- no offensive symbols / attire, no profanity, no accessories that could be used in a dangerous manner (e.g. chains)
- no hats, toques or hoods worn in the building
- coats, sunglasses and jackets should be left on coat hooks and in backpacks during school time
Staff members are required to monitor the appropriateness of student attire and can ask students to make changes at their discretion. Parents are asked to label all footwear and outerwear.
To help provide children with a clean and healthy environment, we request that all students have indoor and outdoor footwear. Please label them with the student’s first and last name. Health regulations and regular fire drills mandate the wearing of proper footwear in the school at all times. Physical Education requires running shoes and students should have backpacks to carry their belongings to and from school. Upon entering the school it is expected that students take off their outdoor footwear and hats at the entrances and carry them to their classrooms.
No Hat Policy
The removal of hats in a building is considered a sign of respect. We ask that students remove hats upon entering the building.
