Toronto Catholic District School Board

Welcome Back!

 

First Day of School 2018/19: September 4th

The countdown until the first day of school has finally begun! 

 

We look forward to welcoming students, staff and families on September 4th to launch the 2018/2019 school year and to begin celebrating the first year of our new pastoral plan: Rooted in Christ we Belong.

 

With the new school year quickly approaching, here’s everything you’ll need to know to get your student prepared for the year ahead. 

 

ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

Dress Code and Uniforms 

All TCDSB Elementary schools follow a Dress Code. The Dress Code consists of any combination of navy blue and white garments (i.e., plain white top, navy blue bottom, navy blue top and bottom, no denim). 

 

Uniform dress code options that may be decided locally may include: dress details (e.g., collar or no collared shirts), inclusion and colour of over-garments (e.g., vests), school crests, gym attire and accessories. Elementary students are not required to purchase school branded uniforms. 

 

Parents are encouraged to review the local dress code at their child’s school and to direct their questions to the principal of the school.

 

School Supplies

All students are encouraged to have a school bag or backpack and a water bottle. Teachers may provide parents and students with a list of recommended additional supplies, for example: notebook, pencil case, pencils, erasers, pencil crayons, etc.

 

Lunch

Students who stay for lunch are not permitted to leave the school yard at noon unless they have a signed and dated note from a parent or guardian each time. Out of respect for those who have life-threatening allergies, we ask that you refrain from sending any items containing peanuts, nut by-products, and seafood/shellfish in your child’s lunch. 

  

Electronics

No electronic devices may be used during the school day in any part of the school. Devices are to be powered off and stored out of view (unless previously approved by the teacher for program use).

 


 

 

HIGH SCHOOLS

Uniforms 

All TCDSB Secondary schools have a Uniform Dress Code. Uniform Dress Codes are determined by the school, specifying clothing that must be purchased from a particular uniform supplier, often with guidelines as to when certain items can/must be worn. 

 

Parents are encouraged to review the local dress code at their child’s school and to direct their questions to the principal of the school.

 

School Supplies

All students are encouraged to have a school bag or backpack and a water bottle. Additional supplies may vary depending on courses selected. Parents and students are encouraged to ask teachers what supplies are required. Examples of items students may require include: 

 

  • Scientific calculator
  • Ruler (cm & inches)
  • Math set (compass, protractor, etc.)
  • Graph paper
  • Pencils, pens, highlighters
  • 3 ring binder and lined paper or notebooks
  • USB flash drive
     

Lunch

Students may purchase lunch from the cafeteria or bring lunch from home. The school cafeteria is available during the lunch hours and before 8:35 a.m. Students must leave their eating area clean and deposit all garbage in the available containers. We ask that students refrain from bringing any items containing peanuts, nut by-products, and seafood/shellfish in their lunch. 

 

Electronics 

No electronic devices may be used during the school day in any part of the school. Devices are to be powered off and stored out of view (unless previously approved by the teacher for program use).

 

Lockers

Each student will be assigned a locker at the beginning of each school year. Each new student to the school will be issued one free lock which he/she is to keep as long as he/she is a student. Should a student lose or break his/her lock, he/she must purchase another from the school at a cost.​
