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.
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.
