Dress Code

The Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) has implemented a common dress code in all elementary schools.

All TCDSB Elementary Schools currently have the following combination of tops and bottoms with the same colour scheme:

  • Navy Blue: Pants, shorts, skorts, skirts, dresses, cargo/capri pants, sweaters, hoodies, fleeces, cardigans. This does not include track pants, sweatpants, tights, nylon pants, leggings, athletic pants, jeans, jeggings, yoga pants/tights.

  • White: Golf shirts, blouses, dress shirts, turtlenecks, mock turtlenecks. This does not include T-shirts or any shirts with logos or messages of any kind.

The Appropriate Dress Code Policy calls for clothes items that navy and white - not baby blue, nor any other shades of blue or off-white or beige. These items are not to have any graphics, unless it is the Holy Spirit crest (spirit wear) or a TCDSB crest. If in the past, you have purchased a Holy Spirit Catholic School vest, hoodie, or sweat top, your child would definitely still be encouraged to wear it especially during the colder months of the year or during physical education classes.
