Dress Code

​Noah Webster has adopted a Common Dress Policy to:

1. Decrease distractions in the learning environment
2. Increase respect for learning (scholars, parents, staff)
3. Increase respect for scholars (staff, parents, public)
4. Simplify school readiness on a daily basis for parents and scholars

Common dress is mandatory and must be worn during the school day, except under special circumstances as announced by the school. School sponsored t-shirts may be worn on Friday with uniform bottoms as described below.

It is the responsibility of the parent to make sure that the proper attire within the documented policy guidelines is consistently worn at school. If there is a violation of the dress policy the scholar will be sent to the office and parents will be called to bring appropriate attire.

Each scholar and staff member wears a name badge at NWA. The name badge is considered a component of the Common Dress Code. The name badge will be put on each morning as the scholar enters the classroom and removed and left in a designated place before the scholar leaves for the day. Scholars love to recognized. The name badge will ensure every staff member will be able to address the scholar by name. If a name badge is lost or misplaced by the scholar, the office will issue a paper name badge up to two time per year. If the badge is not found within two days, it is the responsibility of the scholar to pay $1.00 for the cost of a replacement. Parents will be notified by the teacher if replacement is required.
