Montessori School Dress Code

Dear Nardin Middle, Lower and Montessori School Families:

Even as we are ending one year, planning is already well underway for the next school year.

For the coming school year, Nardin will not be using Land’s End for the sale of uniform shirts, etc.
By July 1st we will be sending out information about the purchase of Nardin uniform shirts and
gym clothing through an on-line store that is currently being designed. There will be no
shipping fees, and orders will be available to be shipped directly to you or picked up at Nardin,
whichever option you choose. New uniform shirts will be available in green and white. Gym
clothing (for grades 4 – 8) will consist of green shorts and a grey shirt. Our existing uniform
policy has not changed. We ask that students wear khaki pants, shorts, skirts, or skorts (to be
purchased from a brand and store of your choice).

For those families that have Nardin uniform shirts and gym clothing, students will be able to
continue to wear those. We will also continue to have the uniform swap where you may bring
in gently used Nardin uniform shirts and exchange them for different size clothing that has also
been exchanged.

Please look for information with the link to the site to order shirts and gym clothing by July 1st.
The information will provide: 1) pricing; 2) specific information about the material
options for the uniform shirts offered; 3) an e-mail to send any questions to with a response
guaranteed within 24 hours; 4) exchange procedures for sizes or for any damaged merchandise
received; and 5) dates when Nardin will open the actual Nardinware kiosk over the summer in
case you wish to come in to see sizes or merchandise.

Thank you,

All students must be dressed appropriately and modestly, as conforms to the philosophy of Nardin Academy. The Nardin dress code allows our students the freedom to express themselves in their dress, while promoting school unity. It is important for our students to look presentable and put together for each school day. Students must arrive at school each day in dress code, proud of their presentation of self and their representation of Nardin Academy. If the administration/faculty deems a student’s clothing inappropriate, the student must change. Skirts, dresses and dress pants may be worn with appropriate dressy tops, blouses, sweaters or Nardinware. Only Nardinware sweatshirts are allowed. Skirts and dresses must be no shorter than fingertip length and should not be sloppy in appearance. Students may wear opaque leggings or tights under their skirts. Each Monday will be a jeans day. Students are permitted to wear jeans of any color with no holes or frayed bottoms or edges, with appropriate dressy tops, blouses, sweaters or Nardinware.

The following items are not allowed:

● Clothing with writing on it, except for Nardinware.

● Sweatpants, pajama pants, jeggings, leggings, crocs, clogs, flip-flops, sandals and slippers are not allowed. Sweatshirts, other than Nardinware, are not allowed.

● Students should avoid clothing that is too tight, too short, or is in bad need of repair. Clothing should not be tattered, frayed, ripped or sloppy in appearance. Tank tops, cropped tops, spaghetti straps, strapless tops are not permitted. Any garment in which underwear or midriff shows is not permitted. See through t-shirts, off the shoulder shirts or low V-necks are not permitted.

● Outerwear including hats, windbreakers and winter coats are not allowed. Winter boots are not allowed to be worn during the day.
