As we navigate the COVID-19 crisis together, we have been in close contact with our school uniform provider, McCarthy Uniforms, to ensure the experience of buying a school uniform for the back-to-school 2020 season is safe and easy. Although the provincial government has not provided an update on the status of the 2020-2021 school year to date, we forward this uniform information to you so that you can make the appropriate decision for your family.
At this time, we recommend that you, especially families of incoming Grade 9 Students, register with McCarthy Uniforms at www.mccarthyuniforms.ca and prepare to shop for school uniforms online.
Registration will provide you with:
- access to updated information on where and how to shop over the summer months
- access to flexible payment options, sales, curbside pick up options starting June 1, 2020
- access to online appointment booking portal for limited in-person fittings, when social distancing measures ease and
uniform fit & instructional videos.
Please also note that, until social distancing guidelines are formally relaxed, McCarthy Uniforms retail locations are not open to the public. That doesn’t mean you can’t shop for your uniform. Our school custom e-store is open 24/7 and a McCarthy’s call center is fully staffed for both customer support & shopping. By registering online, you will obtain a notification when stores are open for appointments and walk in service.
I know you will understand that we are all working through this challenging time together. We are all adjusting to new ways of learning and shopping. Please remember that our partner McCarthy Uniforms has a priority responsibility to keep our community safe and has been working tirelessly to ensure that alternate shopping options are available. They have generously augmented their digital shopping options, invested in additional call center and support resources and have been proactive to ensure that school uniform inventory supply chains are strong & ready for back to school 2020.
Please find online uniform ordering instructions and an updated price list attached.
