Dress Down Day Dress Code

Parent(s) /  Guardian(s)

At NFMAA once a quarter students will have the opportunity to earn a dress down day for academic and / or fundraiser support.  They will be provided with a wristband that will have their name and date for the dress down written on it.  They must wear that wristband on the designated day.  Attached you will find the NFMAA dress down day guidelines for appropriate attire.  If these guidelines are not followed students will no longer be able to participate in any further dress down days  for the 2022.2023 school year.  Parents will also be called to bring a change of clothes for the child(ren) to change into to continue on with their academic day. 

We appreciate your support for NFMAA dress down days and encourage you to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.
