FFCA Uniform FAQs

Where can I find a list of the uniform items my child will need for the upcoming school year?

On the website under in Parent information it will link you to the Uniform information and to a copy of Policy 14, which clearly outlines the uniform requirements.

 

Where do I purchase my uniforms from?

     The contact information for our school uniform supplier is:

InSchoolwear, Calgary
Philips Park, Building A, Unit A9E
6120-2nd Street SE, Calgary, Alberta, T2H 2L8
Tel: 403-640-1032
Email: calgary@inschoolwear.com 

 

Do I have to buy all of the new uniform pieces for the 2018-2019 school year?

No, the board has given parents the 2018-2019 school year to purchase any of the new items that you may need.

 

Are we allowed to continue to wear items from our previous suppliers, including burgundy knits, past the 2018-2019 school year?

It depends.  As long as they meet the new policy's colour and style requirements, uniform pieces from our previous suppliers (Halpern's & Wear It) are still okay to be worn in future years.  This includes the older kilts, tunics, and burgundy knits even though their shading may be different than the new items. 

 

When will the uniforms be available at the new supplier?

Taking on our school contract in May required a faster turnaround than the industry norm and caused some delays in supplies being available.  As of Nov. 9, most items are now in stock in most sizes.

There have been manufacturing problems with the cargo pants and dress shorts which will lead to further delays in these items being available.  InSchoolwear is working to have them in stock by January.

InSchoolwear is working to fill backorders as quickly as possible and will contact families in regards to filled orders as they arrive.  There are many orders available in store which are awaiting pick-up.  Please contact InSchoolwear directly regarding the status of your order.

 

Who do I contact with questions about the ordering and/or purchasing of uniforms?

If you have any additional questions about uniform purchasing or the status of your orders, please call InSchoolwear directly at 403-640-1032.
