Toronto Catholic District School Board

DANTE ALIGHIERI ACADEMY – UNIFORM POLICY

Wearing the Dante Alighieri Academy uniform is an obligation and an expectation of all Dante students.  Students are expected to wear their uniform properly to and from school and during all four periods including lunch and spare.  Ministry of Education regulations and TCDSB policies require each school community to develop a Uniform Policy which the Principal, Vice Principal and staff are expected by Board of Trustees to enforce strictly.  Students are expected to wear the Dante Alighieri uniform properly, exhibiting pride, neatness and good grooming.  Adherence to the uniform guidelines will be determined by the Administration and school staff.
 
Consequences for Non-compliance
 
If the student is not in uniform, parents will be contacted and the student will be sent home to obtain their proper uniform item(s) and then return to school.  In an extreme situation, the Administration will provide a note for the student.
 
Dress-Down Days
 
On these days, in addition to complying with the guidelines above, students are expected to dress appropriately and in good taste.  In the event of a discrepancy, the Principal will determine what is appropriate.
 
Compulsory School Uniform
 
Dante Alighieri uniforms for grades 9, 10, and 11 students must be purchased from R.J. McCarthy Ltd., Scarborough Showroom, 12 Trojan Gate, Toronto.  McCarthy’s may also be contacted at 416-593-6900 or 1-800-668-8261.
  • Uniforms associated with athletics or other co-curricular clubs are not part of the school uniform and cannot be worn during the school day.
  • Absolutely NO modifications to the uniform are permitted.  NO oversize golf shirts will be permitted.  NO coloured, designed or imprinted undershirts/T-shirts are permitted.
  • Students must wear their uniforms to and from school and are expected to remain in uniform all day.  Arriving out of uniform and changing into the school uniform at school is not permitted.
  • Headwear of any kind is not permitted in the school.
  • Extreme or excessive hairstyles, hair colour, make-up or jewellery are not permitted.
  • NO adornments/additions to the uniform are permitted.
  • In extenuating circumstances, when a student is unable to be in uniform he/she must proceed to the Main Office before period one begins to obtain a uniform pass on the day.  In these situations, students are still expected to be appropriately dressed – no jeans, t-shirts etc.
