Catholic board tweaks uniform pitch for elementary students
Niagara's Catholic school board is tweaking their pitch for uniforms for elementary students.
The changes come after a series of public meetings where the Niagara Catholic District School Board heard what parents had to say.
The proposed changes would give kids the choice of 2 shirt colours & the school board logos on them would disappear. The logo-less shirts means they could do double duty outside the classroom. The board is also changing the colour of the uniform pants & shorts for elementary students from grey to blue based on feedback from parents.
The board isn't planning another full slate of public meetings, but is welcoming parents to contact them with their thoughts on the changes. Expected in June, a decision on uniforms for elementary students probably won't come now until October.
A final OK on a dress code policy for Catholic high school students should be pushed through next month with some minor changes.
The board is moving to allow "discreet" tattoos & piercings. The board wants the policy passed so it can be printed in the agendas handed out to all students in September.
