Uniform Guidelines

2022-2023 NAHS Uniform Guidelines and Dress Code Requirements

The NAHS uniform policy is designed to:

  • Promote a safe and orderly learning environment
  • Promote a cohesive atmosphere
  • Discourage inappropriate attire (ie- shirts with profane words and symbols, advertisements for smoking, alcohol, drugs, etc.)

The Policy:

  • Students will wear the uniform every day, unless otherwise noted and administrative communication is provided to families for special events. 
  • Students must be in uniform for field trips, assemblies, and all after-school activities (unless otherwise communicated by school personnel). 
  • Students will be asked to change if they are not in uniform and will be permitted to wear clean donated uniforms if available. Phone call will be made home for uniform infractions and a school consequence (i.e. detention, demerit, loss of incentive, etc.) will be provided. 
  • Being in uniform is NON-NEGOTIABLE. 

All students are required to wear the following:
1. A polo style shirt that may bear the NAHS logo:
