Hudson ISD Student Dress Code Policy
Students will come to school in clothes that are clean and neat, and we expect students to exhibit basic cleanliness and grooming that will not be a health or safety threat to themselves or to other students or staff. While we understand students’ desire to express themselves in their clothing and grooming styles, we do not permit students to wear clothing with pictures, emblems, or writing that is lewd, offensive, vulgar, suggestive, obscene or that advertises or depicts tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, drugs, or any other substance that students are prohibited from having or using at school. The principal or his/her designee makes decisions about dress and grooming violations.
Since it is not possible to anticipate all styles or fads that might be presented, it should not be assumed that an item is appropriate just because it is not mentioned in the dress code rules and regulations.
Extra-curricular activities and organizations may develop guidelines and requirements for participation in their respective organizations, which are above and beyond those required of students, who do not participate in extra-curricular activities or organizations. A copy of these requirements are filed with the principal and given to each student participating in the activity.
Students must comply with the following guidelines during campus hours 7:00 am – 4:00 pm unless specifically authorized by a campus official.
GIRLS are properly dressed in combinations of skirts and blouses, dresses, culottes, pant combinations, jump suits, overalls, and walking shorts. Extreme styles of clothing may be dealt with on an individual basis. Length of all apparel (i.e., shorts, skirts, dresses or etc.) must be no shorter than 7” from the floor while the student is kneeling. Girls’ shirts and blouses must not expose midriff or cleavage.
BOYS are properly dressed in jeans, slacks, suits, dress shirts or sport shirts, walking shorts, jump suits, or overalls. Boys will be clean-shaven except for mustaches. No earrings may be worn. Extreme styles of clothing may be dealt with on an individual basis. Length of all shorts must be no shorter than 7” from the floor while the student is kneeling.
All students must wear shoes. Hair should be kept neat, clean, and well styled so that students’ eyes are clearly visible at all times. Unnatural hair colors and distracting hairstyles are prohibited. Some students, as a matter of style, choose to wear pants or shorts with fashionable holes or tears. These holes or tears must not be higher than 7 “ from the floor while the student is kneeling.
