Toronto Catholic District School Board

TCDSB Dress Code White Shirt .jpg

The Toronto Catholic District School Board implemented an Appropriate Dress Code in all of its elementary schools in September 2011.

The Appropriate Dress Code consists of any combination of white and navy blue garments (e.g. plain white top, navy blue bottom or, navy blue top and bottom, no denim). The many advantages for parents, students and schools are outlined in a question and answers pamphlet for parents.

 
APPROPRIATE DRESS CODE POLICY
The T.C.D.S.B. has mandated a common dress code in its Catholic elementary schools. This Appropriate Dress Code Policy consists of any combination of white and navy garments (i.e. plain white or navy blue top with a plain navy blue bottom; no denim or jeans). Parents and students may purchase a variety of clothing at local retailers.
 
Please take the time to label your child’s clothing with his/her initials using a permanent marker or fabric pen on the tag. In this way, lost clothing will be returned. Students are expected to wear this attire while at school, on excursions, participating in competitions and tournaments and attending mass at St. James Church.
 
Students in JK-Grade 8 are expected to dress neatly and appropriately to promote a positive environment. Students should not wear:
  • Offensive patches, symbols or sayings on clothing are not tolerated or allowed.
  • Halter tops, tank tops, mesh shirts, cut-off shirts, spaghetti strap tops, low-cut tank tops and abdomen revealing tops are not allowed.
  • Low rider pants, skirts and shorts are not appropriate, wear walking shorts only.
  • Sunglasses and hats/baseball caps/hoodies are to be removed when entering the school building.
  • Excessive makeup and nail polish are not appropriate, nor are oversized jewellery or chains.
  • Footwear should be worn that is appropriate to the class activity.
