Dress Code

School Uniforms

As part of the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) local dress code policy, Josyf Cardinal Slipyj has a mandatory dress colour code of navy blue and white. All students from Kindergarten to grade eight are expected to follow the policy, wearing any combination of navy blue and white garments.  Golf, polo shirts, tee shirts or turtle necks are to have no or minimal logo, design or written message promoting a label or designer. Any clothing worn in the classrooms, including gym clothing, hoodies, and sweaters are to be either navy or white. Students wearing other than uniform colours will be asked to remove the non-uniform clothing or will be loaned clothing from the school storage room for the day.  We ask for your cooperation in promoting a respectful and consistent school environment to enhance safety and focused learning.

Summer Attire

With the warm weather, the clothing becomes lighter, but we still ask that students wear school uniforms.  These may be white t-shirts and navy shorts that are of appropriate length.  Both boys and girls need to wear shirts covering the shoulders in order to protect from sunburn; similarly, shorts should be knee-length for the same reasons.  Please support us in appropriate dress throughout the spring and summer months.

Dress Code in TCDSB Schools

All Elementary schools within the jurisdiction of the Board shall adopt an Appropriate Dress Code or Uniform Dress Code.

All Secondary schools within the jurisdiction of the Board shall adopt a Uniform Dress Code.

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.
