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). Parents are encouraged to speak to their local school principal for details.
 
For more information on the appropriate dress code for elementary schools, click here.
 
Where to Buy Clothes: Parents may purchase their children’s white or navy blue tops and navy bottoms at any department store or clothing store.
 
What Clothes to Buy: In a Catholic schools where values and respect for self and others are emphasized, parents are asked to be careful when choosing appropriate clothing items. Clothes should be modest, loose fitting and comfortable for students to wear and be active in. For clothing options please refer to the Dress Code Policy Chart.
 
Financial Assistance: Our school and CSPC are committed to our appropriate dress code policy and will assist parents who have financial difficulties in meeting the policy. Inquiries can be confidentially made through your child’s teacher or directly to the school principal.
