• District‐issued student identification badges shall be worn by all middle and high school students.

    The district’s dress code, starting on page 62 in the parent/student handbook, is established to teach grooming and hygiene, prevent disruption, and minimize safety hazards.  Students and parents should keep these points in mind when planning outfits for school:

    Hair
    o 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.
    o Head sweat bands, hair rollers, or long handled combs may not be worn in the hair.
    o Facial hair, while allowed, must be neatly groomed and a natural color.
    o Head Covering
    o No  type of head covering, cap or hat is  to be worn or brought  to  school except as otherwise permitted by district policy (i.e. religious purposes).

    Dress
    o Any  form  of  dress  or  grooming  that  attracts  undue  attention,  disrupts  school,  is considered gang related, or detracts from the learning process is unacceptable.
    o No sleepwear is to be worn at school.
    o Mini‐dresses  and  mini‐skirts  shorter  than  mid‐thigh,  spaghetti straps,  leotards  and halters as an outer garment are not acceptable.
    o Blouses covering tube tops must be buttoned.
    o The  length  of  shorts  must  be  between  knee  and  mid‐thigh;  no  “short‐shorts”  are allowed.
    o Fashions with slits to mid‐thigh are not acceptable.
    o Excessively  loose  or  tight  garments  are  not  acceptable;  all  clothing  should  be appropriately fit.
    o 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.)
    o 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. 
    o 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.
    o Shoes are to be worn. Steel‐toes shoes, house slippers, cleats and roller/wheeled shoes are not permitted. 
    o Any garment or accessory that could be used in a threatening or menacing manner is prohibited
    o Tattoos must be covered.
    o Piercings: Middle School & High School – 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.
