UNIFORM POLICY

School Uniforms

All scholars must come to school in the Nevada Rise uniform every day. If a scholar arrives to school out of uniform, parents/guardians will be called and asked to bring in a uniform and/or office staff will correct the issue before the scholar is sent to class. We have a required uniform for several very important reasons:

1.          Uniforms unite as a community/team. When you look at a group of scholar in the Nevada Rise uniform, it is a powerful visual statement of our community, our team. Scholars make a commitment that when they put on the Nevada Rise uniform they are agreeing to live up to the school’s high expectations.

2.          Uniforms reduce distractions and clothing competition. Often scholars spend more time discussing and evaluating what others are wearing or not wearing than they spend focusing on learning. Wearing uniforms eliminates this distraction.

3.          Uniforms make us all equal. Whether families have high incomes or low incomes, the scholars come to school looking the same way. No one will feel bad about the clothes they have or don’t have.

4.          Uniforms look professional. Scholars look neat when they arrive to school with shirts tucked into their pants. The scholars come mentally prepared for school and “dressed for success.”

Scholars may not change out of the Nevada Rise uniform at any point during the school day. Scholars must wear the Nevada Rise uniform on all school field trips.

Uniform Non-Compliance: Uniforms are checked upon arrival each day. Families may be asked to come in and provide the necessary appropriate clothing to ensure their child is in full uniform compliance. Uniform non-compliance may result in a scholar not being permitted to attend class until the issue has been corrected. In such a case, the scholar will work independently in an office on their class work. Uniform infractions will be tracked daily.

•       The first week of school

•       During scholar arrival—from 7:30 A.M.-8:00 A.M.
