Newcomb Uniform Policy

Newcomb School Uniform

Uniform Dress Code

Families and staff overwhelmingly agree that our blue and white dress code positively impacts student performance. The dress of students at Newcomb reflects an attitude of self respect and a commitment to the hard work of learning.

Jumpers must be worn with a white collared uniform shirt. Dresses with a collar must be solid navy blue. Sweat pants or warm-up pants are not appropriate. Belts are expected to be worn.
