Please note that Central Office has changed the Uniform Policy starting with the 2015-2016 school year.  It will not be necessary to have the Manchester Public Schools Logo on the students' polo shirt.  Parents/guardians may purchase polo shirts without the logos at their choice of store.  The color options of the shirt should remain according to the policy: burgundy, royal blue, grey or black.  If you wish to purchase a polo or fleece with the Manchester Public Schools logo, the vendor for Bennet and Illing is Novel Tees, located at 81 Tolland Turnpike, Manchester (860-643-6008),  Please note that pants, shorts, skirts can be purchased at any local vendor, or at Novel Tees, but must be school approved colors: black, tan, navy blue or khaki.  NO jeans will be allowed.

For those who wish to purchase uniforms with logos, Please see below


Parents are strongly encouraged to bring their children to Novel Tees in person to be sized correctly.
