SURPRISE N.U.T. Pass Day – this Friday

This Friday, August 8, 2014, we are offering a fun ‘Welcome Back to School’ surprise–our first NUT Pass of the 2014-15 school year!!  If your child would like to purchase a N.U.T. Pass, they must bring in $1 and they can wear any outfit they would like.

For those new to KCSMA, N.U.T. pass stands for ‘No Uniform Today’ and it allows students to wear normal ‘street’ clothes as long as they adhere to the regulations of the dress code.   No tank tops, spaghetti dresses, short shorts, etc.

Note:  NUT Passes are not mandatory.  If your student is not purchasing a pass, they must be in their official uniform or official Spirit Wear attire on Friday.  (Spirit Wear Fridays consist of students wearing an approved Spirit Wear shirt and either jeans, jean shorts, or uniform pants, shorts, or skirt.)
