Uniform Reminder

The Avalon Industries uniform store (supplier of our uniforms) will remain open year round starting May 1, 2004. Three major ordering periods, one in September, December and April will continued to be offered. Orders placed during these times will be delivered to the school with no additional shipping costs. Orders placed at any other time will be delivered (UPS) to your home for a $5.00 fee. If you have any questions call Chris Daley

Uniforms are required dress at the Naval Academy Primary School

Uniforms are required dress at the Naval Academy Primary School. The only source for physical education uniforms is Avalon Industries. (See ordering information at the end of this section; sample sizes may be seen at school.) Avalon also sells a reasonably priced, white short-sleeve polo shirt with NAPS logo. The only source for the girls jumper and skort is Lands End (catalogs available at the school). Trousers, shorts, blouses, shirts, and cardigans for everyday wear can be purchased through Lands End or at a wide variety of stores in the area.

 

When ordering uniform items from Lands End, always reference NAPS preferred account #9000-2498-5. Lands End gives a small portion of these sales to NAPS. All uninforms ordered from Lands End should be plain, i.e.: NO LOGO.

 

       The NAPS logo is the ONLY adornment allowed on school uniforms; the logo is standard on all P.E. uniforms and polo shirts ordered from Avalon Industries. In the past, Lands End applied the school logo on items at the customers request. However, the logos were sewn on as opposed to being stamped on. Consequently, the logo was too heavy for the weight of the shirts and jumpers and the stitching caused puckering. Because of this, we have decided to discontinue the practice of Lands End applied logos on uniform items.

       Large NAPS logo on sweatshirt is no longer acceptable.

       All blouses and shirtsexcept sweatshirtsmust be tucked in at all times.

       All jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, caps, mittens, and gloves should be marked with childs 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 and mittens should be worn during cold weather. Due to the schools location on the water, the children often require outerwear even during in-between weather.

 

Enforcement Procedures Regarding Uniforms

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

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

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

       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, with an extended-care charge of $5 per hour being added to the students account.
