All Newark Board of Education students (Pre-K to 12th Grade) 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 will wear uniforms in their respective school colors. 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.
Uniforms are mandatory for each George Washington Carver & Bruce Elementary Student. When students arrive to school without a uniform during the new school year the parent of the said student will be contacted immediately at the main entrance security desk and the parent will be required to bring their child’s uniform to school for them to change into and as a result the student will automatically receive “Lunch Detention” as well as “Saturday Detention” each of which must be served or it will warrant further disciplinary action.
- NOTE: Each Uniform Shirt MUST have a Carver Bruce Logo. Our Logo is available at all of the local school uniform retail locations here in Newark and the surrounding areas. The logo can be embroider or sewn on as a patch.
