An added option to the school student dress code is the Schoolbelles warm-up suit. consisting of a black zip up track jacket, and black pants with zippered opening at each lower leg. It is allowed to be worn to school, only on gym day, and both the jacket and pants, and gym shoes, are worn as the uniform for the entire day. Students may wear their gym uniform under this warm up suit so they do not have to change clothes for gym. The jacket must be the Schoolbelles jacket, color and style listed below. Students may not wear the jacket, or pants, as their uniform in school on any other day.

The warm up jacket is now available for ordering on the Schoolbelles website. It is the "Olympian Jacket", a soft mid-weight polyknit jacket with semi-matte finish, unlined. The St. Gabriel jacket is only in black, features a contrasting white stripe design, and has the St. Gabriel School monogram embroidered in white on the left side.

The warm-up pants are also available for ordering on the Schoolbelles website. They are solid black mid-weight soft polynit, elastic waist, with zippered opening at each lower leg. They have no stripes or other design, or print, or or logo.
