LISD SCHOOL DRESS GUIDELINES: The following statements are presented for parents and students who feel a need for a point of reference in regard to student dress. All students must be clean and neatly groomed:
- Student’s hair, by the nature of the style or color, shall not tend to create a distraction.
- Students may not wear: tongue rings, facial jewelry, or facial decorations.
- Caps, hats, sweatbands, bandannas, hair rollers, hair curlers, and other similar hair grooming items, shall not be worn by students in the school building.
- Students may not wear clothing that advertises by name or symbol any products that are not permitted in schools, including, but not limited to: drugs, alcohol, profanity or suggestive slogans, tobacco, obscenity, violence or gangs.
- All clothing must properly fit the students. Shirts must be long enough to cover the student’s waist when a hand is raised. Pants, shorts, and skirts must be worn at the natural waistline. Shorts and skirts must be of appropriate length (at or about mid-thigh or longer).
- Clothing, which, in the opinion of the professional staff, would be deemed inappropriate, offensive, or a distraction to others shall not be allowed. This includes but is not limited to graphics that could frighten younger children and text that imparts sarcasm, derision or mockery. In short, if you would not say it to your grandmother, your clothing shouldn’t say it for you all day.
- Appropriate undergarments shall be worn by all students and properly concealed.
- For health reasons, students are required to wear shoes and are not allowed to wear flip-flops or thong type sandals.
The administration reserves the right to determine any inappropriate dress that it feels is disruptive to the elementary school environment.
