The only logo allowed on a shirt is the Dolores Huerta Elementary logo, but children may wear old “Fairmount” logo white shirts until they are worn out.

For the 2019-20 school year only, children may also wear plain white shirts. This is to accommodate families that purchased lots of white shirts last year.

Shirts with the school logo can be found in our online store.
