School Procedures

School Uniforms

All Newark Public Schools are required to wear school uniforms. School uniforms enhance school safety, promote school pride, create a sense of unity amongst students, improve the learning environment, bridge socioeconomic differences between children, promote good behavior, improve children’s self-respect and self-esteem and produce cost savings for participating families.

  • Students in Pre-K to Grade 5 are required to wear navy blue bottoms and white tops.
  • Students in Grades 6 – 8 are required to wear khaki bottoms and navy blue tops.

Clothing must be sized to fit the student. Pants should fit appropriately and should not be too tight or too loose. Shirts should be appropriate size and should not extend below the hip. It is acceptable for students with special religious beliefs and/or special needs or extenuating circumstances to wear head coverings.

The school has an approved vendor that provides special pricing for the school. Check with the Ms. D. Gordon, Community Engagement Specialist  if you are interested in the pricing.
