Dress Code

As you are aware, in order to increase safety and heighten the awareness of community, the TCDSB has a mandatory dress code.  The dress code colours are navy and white.  Clothes must be logo and stripe free.  The lists below provide you with the items that are acceptable/unacceptable for students to wear.  Please note that Transfiguration “Spirit Wear” is permitted.

Acceptable Dress Code

White Tops
Turtleneck sweaters, t-shirts, dress shirts and blouses, golf shirts and sweatshirts (logo-free), Navy blue sweaters, vests and cardigans allowed over white tops.

Navy Blue Bottoms
Pants, cords, walking shorts, sweatpants, skirts, jumpers, with navy and white tights/socks.

Unacceptable Dress

Jeans, jean dresses/skirts, jean shorts, jeggings, tights without skirt or jumper over top, short-shorts, bicycle shorts, tops with spaghetti straps, muscle shirts (i.e., sleeveless).

Any shorts with logos or slogans unless it is a school crest.

Any type of halter or belly top, midriff should be covered.

Extremely tight, baggy, short tops or bottoms.

General Guidelines

The code asks students to dress in a comfortable, neat, clean and practical manner that shows self-respect and is appropriate to a working day in a Catholic School.

The dress code is also in effect during excursions and other school activities, unless specified by the school.

If a student is inappropriately dressed and out of uniform, parents will be notified, and the student may be sent home to change clothing or given an alternate garment to wear.  If your child does not follow our dress code policy on a consistent basis, you will be contacted by the school and may be required to attend a meeting in order to resolve the issue.

We thank you for your support on this important matter.
