1 April Virtual Backpack

Uniform Shorts  Beginning April 1st students may wear uniform shorts.

Uniform Reminder As you buy uniforms for next school year or the springtime, please remember all uniform items are to be purchased at a uniform store, or uniform section of a department store. So pants, shirts, and shorts should be uniform pants, shirts, and shorts, not just the correct color. Uniform clothing is cut and styled in such a way that makes it appropriate for our school setting. And uniforms give off a silent message of solidarity and respect, and even minor violations of the policy can be subject to disciplinary action. Thank you for your support. It is always best to check the Dennis Uniform site to see if what you are purchasing actually fits our school uniform
