Dress Code/ Uniforms


Uniform Information

Students in Pre-K through 8th grade are required to follow the Dress Code & Uniform Requirements Policy and wear uniforms. A physical education uniform is required for students grade 5-8.

It is important for all individuals in the school community to present a good appearance. This shows respect for each other and for one's self. Pride in one's appearance is important in academic and professional settings. The dress code and school uniform requirements will be enforced during school hours and while on school property and may be enforced for any school sponsored or school related event. Exceptions are special occasions and "Dollar Denim Days" which are free dress (themed) fundraising events for charitable organizations.

Uniform clothing must be purchased locally through Dennis Uniform Company, our school code is: RSA. All uniform pieces (except for belts and socks) must have either a visible school logo or Dennis tag. Students should maintain a neat, clean and well-groomed appearance and arrive at school in the complete and proper uniform worn in the spirit it was intended. 

 The principal will have the ultimate decision on uniform policy. It will be at his/her discretion to make any changes to the policy.

***The employees at Dennis Uniform are very knowledgable and helpful with helping you get the right clothing.***
