As of June 1, 2018, Educational Outfitters will have the DCA uniform items for you to purchase except for the girls plaid skirt and kilt (including jumper and skort for elementary). DCA has designed a new plaid that will be specific to DCA and with the new design it will take a little longer to be produced. We have been told the plaid skirt and kilt (including jumper and skort for elementary) should be available as of December 2018 at the latest.
Please mark your calendars for the Used Uniform Sale held here on campus, Monday, June 25 from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m., in the Brown Gymnasium. Educational Outfitters will also be here on campus that day to sell the new items at a discounted amount. Full details about the Summer Consignment Sale can be found on the DCA website at www.dcawildcats.org under the “Campus Life” tab. If you will be signing up as a consignor for the sale or donating items to the sale the website has all of the information you will need. If you have any questions you may call Deleen Cooper at 615-577-1203.
The next two years will be a transition with the DCA school uniform. As you are aware Parker School Uniforms went out of business and we had to change vendors during the 2017-18 school year. The uniform pieces with Parker School Uniform will be “grandfathered” in with the Educational Outfitters uniform pieces until May 2020. As of August 2020, certain items from Parker School Uniform will no longer be allowed.
During this transition both the Educational Outfitters approved uniform items along with the Parker School Uniform items can be worn. You may purchase items in person from Educational Outfitters, 3205 Powell Ave, Nashville, TN 37204 or order online at https://educationaloutfittersnashville.com/educational_outfitters_nashvill/shop/home.
The plaid skirt and kilt (including the plaid jumper for elementary) will not be available until December 2018. Until that time, the Parker skirt and kilt (including jumper and skort for elementary) can be worn. The Parker khaki skort for the elementary girls may also be worn until May 2020.
Khaki pants (K-12 boys and girls) and the khaki shorts (K-12 boys and K-5 girls) can be purchased from any vendor as well as Educational Outfitters. The guidelines for the khaki pants and shorts are as follows (keeping in mind the look of the Parker khaki pants and/or dress pants will help):
- No denim pants or shorts (must be polyester, cotton, or polyester/cotton blend)
- No tight or “skinny” pants or shorts (must be trouser pant leg style)
- No Cargo style pants or shorts
- Only tan khaki color (no green khaki or brown khaki colors)
- No elastic waist or ankle pants or shorts
- No banded or elastic ankle pants
Please watch for the complete and specific DCA uniform with dress code information coming to you soon.
