Letter to Parents September 4 2020.pdf
Dear St. Paul Families,
As we continue to navigate COVID-19 together, we are pleased to share an update on enhanced options for buying your school uniform in 2020.
Our school uniform provider, McCarthy Uniforms, has three enhanced options for shopping: Updated school e-stores, private appointments (prior to August 15th) and a web-supported call-center.
We encourage families to shop early and utilize these alternative channels to avoid late-August line ups. Long wait times will be the reality this year given that McCarthy’s must adhere to strict social distancing measures and simply can’t accept normal in-store volumes. The six feet social distance requirements translate into only 15% of McCarthy’s normal in-store capacity at peak time.
McCarthy’s has informed us that to support families during this time they have implemented an installment payment program (online only), introduced volume discount buying options and invested in a variety of web support tools to make online shopping easy & fast! All school uniform products can be exchanged for up to a year and returned until September 15.
We encourage you to follow us on Twitter: @StPaulCSS1 for regular school and board updates. Thank you in advance for your support.
The St. Paul Administrative Team
There are three ways to shop for your school uniform:
1. Your School E-Store
Did you know your school has a custom e-store, complete with fit videos, uniform guides and specialized advice? Visit your school store by 'searching for your school' on McCarthy Uniforms’ home page. McCarthy’s recently launched a handy web chat feature and have staffed their call-centre so that you can have the support you need if you need some help along the way ! Online shoppers can also now enjoy the industry's first flexible payment plan (interest-free payments over six weeks !).
Shop online by ‘searching for our school’ at:
2. Private Appointments Available Until August 15
McCarthy’s is booking private appointments until August 15th, as well as accepting limited walk-in customers. You can use McCarthy’s handy appointment booking tool to reserve your spot and avoid being disappointed by capacity limits. Beginning August 16, McCarthy’s expects longer-than-average wait times for walk-in traffic (due to government mandated 'six feet’ social distance measures). To guarantee your fitting and avoid long lines, book an appointment for prior to August 15.
Book a personalized fitting by choosing ‘book an appointment’ at: https://www.mccarthyuniforms.ca/
3. Your School Call Centre
Your call-centre is open for shopping ! By giving McCarthy’s a shout at 416-593-6900 or toll-free at 1-800-668-8261 Alex and his team would be happy to assist you with your school uniform purchase or questions ! McCarthy’s call centre is staffed with uniform specialists who know the ins & outs of our uniform policy.
