The Lewisville ISD dress code is a reflection of school and community expectations and standards for our students. The dress code plays an important role in creating an effective, safe, and nurturing learning environment free from disruptions. As such, the LISD dress code is intended to establish respect, positive impressions, and encourage success beyond the school environment.
Students should be dressed and groomed in a manner that is clean and neat and that will not be a health or safety hazard to themselves or others. Shorts are permitted, if in good taste. Open mesh shirts for boys are not acceptable. Halter tops, midriffs, and spaghetti strap tops for girls are not acceptable. T-shirts that have lettering or designs which insinuate vulgarity, profanity, alcoholic beverages or drugs are not permitted in LISD schools as it is felt that these items interfere with the educational process. Hair styles and clothing should not create a distraction in the classroom. Hair color should be primarily a nature color and accents or color strips may not cover more than 25% of the hair. The principal has the authority to determine if student dress is appropriate. If the principal determines that a student is in violation of the dress code, the student will be given the opportunity to correct the problem at school. If not corrected, the student will be assigned to in-school suspension until the problem is corrected. Please refer to the document below for further guidance on appropriate dress in LISD schools.
