 Uniforms for Secondary School

Students in secondary school are required to wear uniforms to school, at all times during the school day, including spare, unless it is a civvies day in which students are permitted to wear their own clothing to school. The ALCDSB uniform provider is McCarthy Uniforms.
Uniforms provides many advantages to our students, including safety, pride and a sense of equality. The uniform allows staff to easily identify any person who does not belong in our school buildings.
Team, club or spirit wear is acceptable only at lunch, before and after school hours as it is not considered to be uniform. Hats are to be removed upon entry into any of the school buildings.
Elementary school students do not require uniforms.​
