Little Elm High School Dress Code

The dress and grooming standards of the Little Elm High School dress code are meant to promote a positive, professional learning environment where the focus is on instruction and not on clothing. Clothing, hairstyles, and accessories should not be disruptive, immodest or compromise student safety.

 

Students shall come to school looking clean, neat and ready to learn. The District prohibits pictures, emblems or writings on materials or clothing that are lewd, offensive, vulgar, immodest or promote or refer to alcoholic beverages, drugs or any other substance prohibited under policy FNCF (legal).

The District also prohibits any clothing or grooming that, in the administrator’s judgment, may reasonably be expected to cause disruption of or interference with normal operations. Clothing or other personal items depicting or promoting acts of violence, guns, weapons, death, dismemberment, disfigurement, gang activity or affiliation or other offensive items or wording are specifically prohibited.

 

The following statements serve as guidelines so that there is no question of what is acceptable.

  • Pants or shorts must be worn at a natural waistline and undergarments cannot be visible.
  • Leggings are only acceptable to be worn under shorts, skirts, dresses, and/or blouses that maintain the dress code of reaching to mid-thigh or longer in length.
  • Pants and other articles of clothing that are torn, ragged, frayed or with holes must have a covering underneath so that no skin is visible from shoulder blades to mid-thigh or longer in length.
  • Appropriate footwear with hard bottom soles must be worn.
  • Dresses, skirts, shorts, “skorts”, and jumpers must be mid-thigh length or longer.
  • Shirts of underwear type, see-through clothing, halter tops, tube tops, spandex clothing, or any clothing which exposes a bare midriff, back (below the shoulder blades), chest, or undergarments MAY NOT BE WORN. Shoulders, back, chest, and midriff must be covered.
  • SPECIAL EXCEPTION - This code is not to be construed so as to apply to those pupils in certain elective subjects such as band, organized sports, or to students in voluntary student organizations which are called upon from time to time to represent their school in public events. Teachers and sponsors of these subjects and organizations will continue to require those standards of dress and appearance that they deem appropriate and which have served in the past to mark those school representatives with honor and  distinction.

 

ANY CLOTHING, PERSONAL APPEARANCE, OR PERSONAL STANDARD, WHICH IN THE JUDGEMENT OF ADMINISTRATORS DISRUPTS THE EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT SHALL NOT BE PERMITTED.

 

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 or be required to wear school provided clothing for the remainder of the day. Repeated offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
