The Orange County Academy of Sciences and Arts (OCASA) dress policy is designed to ensure that students are well prepared for academic and social success, appropriate for all school activities and learning.
Students are required to maintain a clean, neat and healthy personal appearance.
Parents are expected to support the school dress policy by making sure their children leave home properly groomed and dressed for school.
Children’s appearances should not be distracting to the educational process.
Uniforms must be neat, clean, and in good condition.
There are no age-specific requirements. For example, if a 6th grader would like to wear a shift dress, that is her choice/family choice, but it must be worn with the shirt and tie in that option.
There is no “day of the week” uniform requirement.
If an undershirt is worn, it must match the outer shirt. For example, if a child chooses to wear a camisole/tank top/undershirt under a white button down, it needs to be white in color. Camisoles/tank tops/undershirt do not need to be purchased at Dennis Uniform.
Free dress days are at the discretion of the administration and will be announced via email.
Items may be purchased through any vendor as long as they match the specified colors and styles.
The school administration may announce Spirit Wear days throughout the year. On these days, students are permitted to wear shirts, sweatshirts and accessories sold through the Spirit Wear committee. Students must still wear uniform bottoms, unless otherwise specified.
All uniform items may be purchased from Dennis Uniform:
