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.
We want to continue with our successful implementation of the school uniform policy. Below you will see the uniform colors for polo shirts, pants, skirts, and skorts. Additionally, shoes must be navy blue, black, or brown. Shoes must be securely fastened.
Clogs, flip-flops, and bedroom slippers are not permitted.
Luis Muñoz Marín Elementary School colors are burgundy tops and tan (khaki) bottoms.
