St. Paschal Baylon Catholic School’s Code of Appropriate Dress is meant to encourage good behaviour and create a solid educational atmosphere in the school. All bottoms MUST be navy blue and tops can be either navy blue or white (with no logos). Parents may purchase clothing items with the school crest from our uniform supplier but this is not mandatory. Our appropriate dress code policy is meant to be an indication of the respect, appropriateness and decorum which we expect here at St. Paschal Baylon School.
The following restrictions on clothing apply to all students, staff and volunteers: There will be no jackets, knapsacks etc. with vulgar expressions, pictures or any content judged to be offensive or demeaning. Clothing must cover the body appropriately. This includes no short shorts or short skirts, mid-riff baring tops, tank tops, excessively sagging pants or clothing ripped or tattered exposing body parts that are best left covered. Individuals wearing inappropriate clothing at school (even if they are blue and white) will be expected to change into more acceptable apparel. Excessive makeup is not permitted and people will be required to wash their faces when requested. For physical education classes, students are expected to change into suitable clothing. This consists of shorts or track pants, T-Shirt or sweatshirt and running shoes. For the primary classes, running shoes will suffice.
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.
