Dear Parents and Guardians,
We are writing to let you know that we recently changed the Halton Catholic District School Board’s school uniform provider.
The contract with our current uniform provider, McCarthy, will expire on December 31, 2016. In accordance with our purchasing policy guidelines, our Board undertook a Request for Proposal (RFP) process this year to select a uniform provider to serve parents and students beyond December 31, 2016.
The contract was awarded to InSchoolWear Inc., which will be the sole uniform provider for our Board for a period of three years, commencing January 1, 2017.
Important Facts for Parents
- Families are still able to purchase school uniform pieces from McCarthy until December 31, 2016.
- Students will be able to wear the McCarthy uniform beyond January 1st and into the next year and beyond, until they grow out of the items of clothing.
- Uniform items previously purchased from McCarthy will be honoured! They will still qualify for the end of year uniform exchange program, or can be worn by younger siblings until they outgrow the items of clothing.
- Beginning January 1, 2017, all new uniform items will be available for parents to purchase from InSchoolWear, located on the border of Oakville and Burlington (886 Sinclair Road, in Oakville) and at their new location in Milton (coming soon).
For more information, please visit the InSchoolWear website at: http://www.inschoolwear.com .
If you have any questions about the RFP process or the new provider, please feel free to contact me at 905-632-6314, ext. 127.
We would like to thank McCarthy for their many years of service and support to our families, schools, and communities. We welcome and look forward to working with InSchoolwear.
