School Uniforms

Uniforms enhance community spirit and school pride.  They foster a sense of unity, decorum and dignity.  Students are expected to dress in a manner that shows respect for the educational environment and well suited for learning activities.

McCarthy is our uniform supplier.  Uniform pieces are required to be purchased through McCarthy or directly through the school’s stock of uniforms (excluding bottoms, socks, tights, shoes and belts).  Students may continue to wear pre-purchased uniform items that fit the current policy, unless they are in poor repair (i.e. ripped, worn, faded, or permanently soiled).

We have a supply of gently-used uniform items ready for purchase at a reduced price.  Contact our office at 403.285.2288 for information about available items.
