ST. MICHAEL'S CHOIR SCHOOL DRESS CODE

  

It is mandatory that all St. Michael’s Choir School students wear our school uniform.  Our uniform policy conforms to the “Code of Dress” guidelines of the Toronto Catholic District School Board.  The purpose of the uniform is to instill a sense of pride and identity as well as contributing to the good order and atmosphere of the school, and the overall safety and security of the school.  Students should be neat and well-groomed at all times.
 
Students must wear the complete uniform while on school property at all times during the day, including the lunch period.  All students are expected to wear their uniform to and from school. If students are not in uniform, a call is made to the parent(s)/guardian(s) and the student will be sent home to get his uniform or the parent will be asked to bring the uniform to school.
 
The school uniform supplier is McCarthy Uniforms.  All uniform items MUST be purchased through McCarthy Uniforms, either online, or at their retail location in Toronto.
Winter uniform can be worn all year long, whereas summer uniform can only be worn at times indicated by the Administration.

Dress Code for non-uniform days.

 
Students are expected to wear a top with sleeves, a pair of pants, shoes and socks.  The clothing worn must be neat, presentable, clean and appropriate for a learning environment.
Please note:
 
·          All uniform items must be neat, clean and in good repair.
·          Jackets and coats must not be worn in the building
·          Spirit wear is NOT part of the school uniform.
 
·          AT ALL TIMES, the Administration retains the right to prohibit items which do not meet or uphold the spirit or moral tone of a Catholic school, and/or are not in keeping with the decorum of the uniform.
 
·          Students who fail to report to school in complete uniform (clean and in good condition) may be sent home to change into proper school uniform before being readmitted.  Students who fail to comply with the school uniform policy will be seen by an administrator and progressive discipline will be used to determine consequences.
 
Respect for our school community can be continually fostered by personal appearance.
Personal appearance must be a priority for all students. The practice of looking neat and clean every day at school enhances the ability to look good at all public appearances, each week in St. Michael’s Cathedral Basilica for Mass, and at all other choir obligations throughout the school year. The school reserves the right to determine what is acceptable in this area.
 
Uniforms must be clean and proper at all times and must not be altered except for proper fit.
Hair is to be neat and trim. Extreme or unconventional hair styles or colours which detract from the appearance of the choir are unacceptable. Hats or other headgear are not to be worn in school.
 
No facial hair is acceptable as part of the uniform for Choir School students; therefore, beards and moustaches are not part of the uniform.
 
Simple jewelry may be worn, such as a gold chain, provided that it is unobtrusive and does not detract from the uniform appearance.  No earrings may be worn.
 
If a student's personal appearance at school is unacceptable, he will be dealt with immediately by the school staff.
 
If a student's personal appearance is unacceptable for a public Choir School function, he will be asked to correct the problem.  If this is not possible, the choir conductor or Executive Director may decide that the student will not be permitted to perform. In this case parent(s)/guardian(s) will be contacted as soon as possible.
