School Uniform/Dress Code

When St. Scholastica School first opened its doors in September of 2018, the school was not a full uniform school. Our Catholic School Council made the decision at our November 2018 Catholic School Council meeting to proceed with a uniform vote that would take place in February/March of 2019.  All families who had children from JK to Grade 6 who were currently registered at the school and those who were “pre-registered for the start of the 2019-2020 school year were provided with a ballot during our voting period.  Our uniform vote yielded a 72% response rate and our parents voices were heard loud and clear when the result of this vote indicated a 74% YES vote for the implementation of a school uniform starting in September of 2019.

As of September 2019, all students in Grades K-7 are expected to be in full school uniform as described in the Halton Catholic District School Board’s uniform policy: II-41 School Uniform Dress Code/School Dress Code.  This policy is linked below for your reference:
