Toronto Catholic District School Board

LOCAL DRESS CODE
 
Requirements of the appropriate dress code are: the wearing any combination of blue and white. At
all times clothing must be neat, modest, and suitable for a Catholic school environment.
 
Shirts with questionable messages or graphics; revealing, skimpy (including halter tops, tube tops, low cut
tops) midriff baring or suggestive attire are not permitted). A good “rule of thumb” is that shirts
should have sleeves (two of them!) or straps of at least three fingers in width.
 
The school administration and staff greatly appreciate support from the parents in helping maintain a respectful
and appropriate learning environment. Hats, caps, bandanas, sweatbands and other head attire may not be worn in school or in the classrooms and must be removed upon entry into the school. Teachers will ask a student to remove
their hat and may retain a hat until the end of the day or longer as the circumstance requires. Limited exceptions are made for unusual circumstances.
 
Excessive makeup is strongly discouraged and distracting jewellery and paraphernalia are better left at home.
 
Students who fail to comply with appropriate dress code will be disciplined. This may include the providing of more suitable attire, a note in the agenda, phone call to the parent, or removal of the questionable item (such as studded or chain items). Remember, the school is a workplace and the children are to dress accordingly. Each classroom teacher will outline his/her requirements regarding gym attire and students are to be prepared by bringing the items to school
with them as required.
 
Proper footwear is the minimum requirement in the gymnasium. Jewellery should be removed for gym activity as it
can be a safety issue. Physical Education is a component of the curriculum and is not optional. This includes 20 minutes of Daily Physical Activity and students should be prepared to be active each and every day!
 
During the winter months your child will need shoes for indoor use only. The wearing of socks or boots all day is neither healthy nor safe. In the event of an evacuation there will not be time to put on shoes nor is it safe to travel through the
building or on the stairs in socks.
