Uniform Policy


NIA Uniform Policy 
 

Uniforms promote equality among students. Students study and grow well in an environment where there is little or no disparity. Uniforms are an expression of the discipline we are working to instill in our students. Where there is no discipline, there will be no meaningful learning. Students are required to follow the dress code as outlined in our Uniform Requirement List which is located in the school office. Non-compliance to Uniform and Grooming Regulations will result in an infraction. Please see both the Code of Conduct as well as Disciplinary Action/Infraction System pages for details on infractions and subsequent consequences. In addition, students not in uniform may be asked to call home for appropriate attire, sent home to change attire, or subject to in-school suspension. Uniforms must conform to the approved design/style codes and may only be purchased from the authorized vendors (Brooke of Life Hepzi Uniforms or Kid to Kid) so that students will wear only approved styles and colors. No characters allowed on backpacks. Face coverings/masks must be solid color or print with no letters, cartoon characters or pictures.
