Northpoint Expeditionary Learning Academy Attire
Because of the high expectations we have for all students, the involvement with the community and our focus on quality work, we have adopted a selection of approved school shirts that all students will be required to wear. These must be worn when students arrive on campus and remain on until students leave (not just in classrooms, but at all times in the building and as required on school trips). Exceptions to this may apply on a case by case basis (as in camping trips or work projects) Coats may be worn outside, but are to come off when students enter the building. Layers may be worn under attire for warmth.
A wide variety of shirt styles are available that include the school logo. Vests, jackets, hats and additional styles can be ordered online at http://www.companycasuals.com/northpoint/start.jsp or 928-632-0124. Students can select their own bottom wear, provided that it meets the following guidelines.
