RETURNING STUDENTS

 

NEW STUDENTS

 

 

WILL ORDER ONLINE AND ORDERS WILL BE SHIPPED TO YOUR HOME THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER.

 

CANNOT ORDER ONLINE; ORDERS MUST BE PLACED IN PERSON AFTER THE UNIFORM HAS BEEN TRIED ON.  ANY ORDERS RECEIVED FOR NEW STUDENTS WILL BE REJECTED.

 

         


As an returning student, this is the only time you will be able to pre-order before school starts.  If you do not order before the May 10 deadline, you'll be limited to purchasing 2 short sleeve cotton shirts and 1 fleece from stock when the store opens in mid-August and you won't be able to purchase more until after August 23, 2019.

The first special order for the 2019-2020 school year will go in on September 15, 2019.  If you don't order long sleeve shirts for your student now, the earliest we could get them to you is the second week of October.  Last year our manufacturer experienced backorders of some of our most popular shirts which meant some students didn't receive the long sleeve shirts they ordered in September until December. 

Pre-ordering is highly recommended.

Dress Code Information


All DCHS students are required to wear the uniform polo during all school days with the exception of 'jeans days' or dress up days.  The uniform fleece may be worn over, but not in place of, the uniform polo.

Please refer to the Student Handbook for complete dress code information.

FAQ’s

What color/style is the most popular?

Maroon and black seem to be the most popular with white following close behind. More kids wear cotton than performance, but that’s up to you!


How many shirts do I need?

As a DCHS mom for 9 years, I always bought 5 shirts so I didn’t have to do laundry mid-week.  It’s up to you and how often your family does laundry.

 

Where do we buy pants?

American Eagle, Hollister, Old Navy, Gap – all are popular places to find uniform pants.  SHOP EARLY, especially if your student is hard to fit.
It’s common for local merchants to run out of khaki, gray, navy or black pants as we get closer to the start of the school year.

 

Is everything in the store dress code?       

No.  Only the items listed on the Uniform Order Form are dress code approved.  Spirit gear found in the store can be worn on jeans/spirit days which occur frequently during the school year.   

 

Do the cotton shirts shrink?

The shirts are a cotton blend.  They will shrink a little bit.  They tend to shrink in length more than in width and then only about ¼ inch.

 

Why do I have to come in to order/why can’t I order online? 

Because most of our uniform items are ‘special order’ we cannot offer any returns or exchanges on those items.  Each special order item is decorated after it is ordered and our vendor won’t take any decorated items back.  The in-stock cotton short-sleeve shirts and uniform fleece can be exchanged for a different size, but there are no refunds on ANY uniform items.  We have to hold true to this policy, so it’s in your best interest to try on before purchasing.

 

Do I have to order everything now?

No.  You can purchase in-stock items any day school is in session and order special order items during the school year from September – February through our website.  The store places one bulk order on the 15th of each month.  Your order will be delivered to your student during seminar during the second week of the following month. 

Example 1 – you order on 9/1, bulk order is placed on 9/15 and delivers to your student during the second week of October. 
Example 2 - you order on 9/16, bulk order is placed on 10/15 and delivers to your student during the second week of November.

More information will be provided after the school year begins.

 

What uniform items do you stock in the store?

Cotton short-sleeve polos for men and women
Micro-fleece jackets for men and women


Why should I purchase spirit gear from the Campus Store?

You may have noticed that Dowling Catholic spirit gear is not available in any local stores. We hold 5 trademarks with the US Patent and Trademark office to protect our brand and we work with a few licensed vendors to ensure our brand is consistently represented. Every purchase through the Campus Store benefits the students of Dowling Catholic as our proceeds stay here at Dowling Catholic. 

What hours is the store open?

We are open 9 am – 1 pm Monday through Thursday and 9 am - 4pm on Friday, when school is in session.
