All students are required to wear a uniform shirt to school every day. The uniform consists of a Dover t-shirt and pants or short bottoms of your choice. Dover will be selling uniform t-shirts for $5 inside the office beginning on August 3. Uniform t-shirt order forms are also included in the first day packet. Parents can choose to complete the form, include the payment, and send the form to school with their child.

Dover School Rules
Be a Role Model
Students are expected to follow school and classroom rules at all times. Students who repeatedly break rules will be counseled by their teacher, guidance counselor, and/or administrator. Parents will be contacted and kept informed.
It is important for your child to be at school every day unless sick. Please plan family vacations during times when school is out of session. When your child is absent, please call the school attendance line each day of the absence to report your child's reason for not being in school (813-757-9457, ext. 1).
A doctor's note is required for students who miss over five days.
Students who have no absences within the nine week grading period will be recognized at the end of the nine week awards ceremony for perfect attendance.
Students acquiring over five absences or tardy arrivals without a doctor's note within a nine week period will not be eligble to earn citizenship.
