Dress Code

  • From the Humble ISD Student Handbook (pages 61-63)

    Dress and Grooming (All Grade Levels)

    The district’s dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, prevent disruption, and minimize safety hazards. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the following during instructional time:

    • Hair
      • Hair must be neat, clean and well groomed. Hair style/color must not create disruptions or distraction. Extreme hairstyles which include hair that is dyed an unnatural color (green, orange, etc.) will not be permitted.
      • Head sweat bands, hair rollers, or long handled combs may not be worn in the hair.

    • Facial hair, while allowed, must be neatly groomed and a natural color (High Schools only).

    • Head Covering
      • No type of head covering, cap or hat is to be worn or brought to school.

    • Dress
      • Any form of dress or grooming that attracts undue attention, disrupts school, is considered gang related, or detracts from the learning process is unacceptable.
      • No sleepwear is to be worn at school.
      • Mini-dresses and mini-skirts shorter than mid-thigh, spaghetti straps, leotards and halters as an outer garment are not acceptable.
      • Blouses covering tube tops must be buttoned.
      • The length of shorts must be between knee and mid-thigh; no “short-shorts” are allowed.
      • Fashions with slits to mid-thigh are not acceptable.
      • Excessively loose or tight garments are not acceptable; all clothing should be appropriately fit.
      • Shirts must be worn so as not to expose the bare chest. Male students may not wear shirts without sleeves. Tank tops or undershirts are not to be worn as outer garments. The midriff must not be exposed when a student goes through the normal activities of a school day (bending, stretching, reaching, etc.)
      • Garments with inappropriate decorations or advertisements are not acceptable. The American flag is not to be worn as an article of clothing. A depiction of the American flag on clothing, in a respectful manner, is acceptable.
      • Sunglasses are not allowed to be worn in the school building. o Appropriate foundation garments must be worn at all times. o Revealing garments are not permitted.
      • Shoes are to be worn. Steel-toes shoes, house slippers, cleats and roller/wheeled shoes are not permitted. Additionally, at elementary level campuses, heels over ½ inch and flip flops are not permitted.
      • Any garment or accessory that could be used in a threatening or menacing manner is prohibited.

    • Make-up is not permitted at the elementary level.

    • Tattoos must be covered.

    • Piercings:
      • Earrings
        • Elementary & Middle Schools – Girls may wear earrings.
        • High School Only – All students may wear earrings.

    • No other piercings are allowed. 

    • Exceptions to the Humble ISD dress code due to medical reasons must be approved by the grade level principal.

    If the principal determines that a student’s grooming or clothing violates the school’s dress code, the student will be given an opportunity to correct the problem at school. If not corrected, the student may be assigned to in-school suspension for the remainder of the day, until the problem is corrected, or until a parent or designee brings an acceptable change of clothing to the school. Repeated offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
