Dress and Grooming (All Grade Levels)

All requirements within this policy will be strictly enforced. In order to attend their regular classes, students will be required to be in full compliance with this policy.

The district’s dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, prevent disruption, and minimize safety hazards.

The dress and grooming standards of the Frisco Independent School District are meant to promote a positive, professional learning environment where the focus is on instruction and not on clothing. Clothing, hairstyles and accessories meet reasonable, school-appropriate standards that support a safe school environment.

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, and immodest or promote or refer to alcoholic beverages, drugs or any other substance prohibited under policy FISD Board Policy/Exhibit FNCF. 

The District also prohibits any clothing or grooming that, in the principal’s judgment, may reasonably be expected to cause disruption of or interference with normal operations. Shirts or other clothing 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:

Elementary Dress Code (Grades K-5)

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

  • Clothing should be worn for the purpose for which it was designed. No undergarments or pajamas are to be worn as outerwear.

  • Dresses and Skirts must extend to below the undergarment area at all times whether in standing or sitting position.

  • Earrings and single nose studs are permissible. All other visible body-piercing jewelry or ornaments are prohibited.

  • Sunglasses, caps, hats, and bandanas are not allowed to be worn inside the building.

  • “Sagging pants” are not allowed.  Jeans, slacks, shorts and all other pants must be worn at or about the waist at all times. Even if a shirt is extremely long, the pants must be worn at the waist. Undergarments should not be visible at any time.

  • Shoes must be worn at all times; house shoes are not permitted. Tennis shoes should be worn in physical education classes. Shoes with wheels are not allowed. We discourage students from wearing flip-flops, heels and or wedges as these types of shoes can pose a hazard on the playground.  

  • Sleeveless tops must be wide enough to cover undergarments. See-through, bare midriff, halter type, or any revealing or low-cut clothing is not permitted. Shirt hems should extend to the waist of the pants/shorts/skirts.

  • Tights, leggings, or other form-fitting pants must be worn with shirts, skirts, or shorts that extend to cover the undergarment area.

  • Reasonable standards of modesty must be met.

Students in violation of the student dress and grooming code will be expected to change to appropriate attire (provided by the school) when violations occur. Students will not be allowed to leave campus for the purpose of changing clothes. Students who fail to meet this requirement of compliance with the Dress and Grooming Code may spend the day in In-School Suspension.

Students who persistently violate the dress code may be held to a higher dress standard. Students are expected to be in compliance with the dress code at any school-related event or activity; school officials have the authority to ask them to leave if they are inappropriately dressed.

Note: The principal, in connection with the sponsor, coach or other person in charge of an extracurricular activity, may regulate the dress and grooming of students who participate in the activity and may impose higher standards.
