When you are a Student Leader at Outdoor School you students, teachers, administrators, and parents observe you. You are asked to be a positive role model for all children on-site and for your peers. You are expected to be neat and clean at all times. Pack clothing that would be appropriate for visiting a classroom and then taking the class on a field trip. You should not buy new clothes for this ... borrow or use available clothes that will provide for your safety and help you be an appropriate role model for the children.
The following is NOT APPROPRIATE FOR OUTDOOR SCHOOL:
• Loose jewelry that catches on shrubs or plants.
• Clothing with inappropriate language or printed symbolic references to religion, sex, tobacco, drugs, alcohol, and/or gangs.
• Cut off clothing or clothing with holes.
• Clothes that are very dirty.
• Clothing without the visible support of undergarments.
• Clothing that is too tight or too large.
When appropriate, shorts weather will be decided by the Site Supervisor. All shorts must extend below the individual’s fingertips when arms are relaxed and hanging by the individual’s side.
