Dress Code

2022-2023 MISD Student Handbook:  Dress and Grooming (All Grade Levels – p. 52)

The district’s dress code teaches grooming and hygiene, prevents disruption, and minimizes safety hazards. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the following:

• Shoes or sandals must be worn at all times (slippers are not allowed)

• Skirts, dresses and shorts must extend past the fingertips; no biking shorts, cutoffs, or boxer shorts

• Pants, shorts, and skirts cannot be worn below the waist (“sagging” garments are not acceptable)

• Yoga pants, jeggings, leggings, tights, exercise/training sportswear, or excessively tight pants must be worn with a shirt or skirt that extends past the fingertips

• Clothing (pants, shorts, and skirts) with holes/tears must be below fingertip length

• Items that display pictures, slogans, or language that is provocative, offensive, violent, profane, sexual, drug related, tobacco related, gang related or promotes death or hate messages will not be permitted

• No pajamas

• No exposed underwear or undergarments

• Spaghetti straps, tube tops, exposed midriff or cleavage, halter-type blouses, mesh/see through shirts, tank tops, muscle shirts, basketball jerseys must be worn with an appropriate garment, (i.e. T-shirt)

• No trench coats

• No hats, caps, bandannas, hoods, hair nets, head scarves, skull caps, wallet chains, or sunglasses

• A wig, scarf, or cap may be worn for medical exception upon approval

• Hairstyles that are disruptive (head and/or facial) are not permitted

• Earrings and nose studs are permissible; All other visible body-piercing jewelry or ornaments are not permitted unless the piercing is for cultural or religious reasons

• Swastikas, spiked jewelry (dog collars), spoons, or drug related items are not permitted

• Tattoos with provocative, profane, or offensive pictures or writing are not permitted

• Body paint is prohibited

• Students may wear face coverings in response to COVID-19. McKinney ISD may update this protocol as additional information becomes available. 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.
