Uniforms
















Uniforms are required dress at the Naval Academy Primary School. Students are expected to abide by the uniform policies. Uniforms should fit properly and be clean and well maintained. Please discard stained, torn, or otherwise unkempt uniform pieces.

Flynn & O’Hara is the only source for the required physical education uniforms. Lands’ End is the only source for the girls’ jumper and skort. (See ordering information at the end of this section)

The plain, solid color navy-blue trousers, shorts, and cardigans as well as the white dress shirts, polo shirts, turtleneck shirts, and blouses—described in the dress code below—can be purchased through a wide variety of stores in the area or through Flynn & O’Hara.

The NAPS logo, as applied by Flynn & O’Hara to P.E. uniforms and polo shirts, is the ONLY adornment allowed on school uniforms.

All blouses and shirts—except sweatshirts—must be tucked in at all times.

All jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, caps, mittens, and gloves should be marked with child’s full name.

For safety reasons, small stud earrings and wristwatches are the only jewelry allowed at school.

Be aware that the children play outside at least thirty minutes a day, so coats, hats, and mittens should be worn during cold weather.

Due to the school’s location on the water, the children often require outerwear even during in-between weather.

 

Enforcement Procedures Regarding Uniforms

1. First non-compliance with the uniform code: A note will be sent home.

2. Second non-compliance with the uniform code: A note will be sent home and the parent must sign and return the note to school.

3. Third non-compliance: A telephone call will be made to the parent to discuss the problem.

4. Fourth non-compliance: If possible, the student will be outfitted from the uniforms on hand at the school and the student account will be charged accordingly. If this is not possible, the parent will be called and the student will not be allowed to attend class until the parent brings the correct uniform to school.

Field trips: Prior to any field trip, the teacher will send home an information sheet that includes details regarding the prescribed uniform. The uniform information will also be included in a flyer sent home before the field trip. If a child arrives at school out of uniform for a field trip that has been designated formal, a staff member will make a phone call to the parent, requesting that the correct uniform items be brought to school. If the situation is not rectified by the scheduled departure time, the student will remain at school until he/she is picked up by a parent or an authorized adult. If no one is available to come to school for the child, he/she will be cared for at school with an extended-care charge added to the student’s account.
