The current HISD Dress Code was adopted by the Board of Trustees on May 19, 2011, and is still in effect for the 2016-2017 school year. The code applies to students in 5th grade through 12th grade. There have been NO CHANGES to the current posted Dress Code policy for this new school year.
DRESS CODE UPDATE EFFECTIVE ALLOWANCE added October 7, 2013 to Present -
Spirit & School Sanctioned t-shirts now allowed!
Secondary Campus Principals (HHS, MPMS & HIS) have decided to exercise the "principals' discretion" part of the current HISD dress code to allow school spirit, or school sanctioned t-shirts to be worn any day of the week. This means that students may wear t-shirts every day so long as they promote HISD school spirit, Huntsville Hornets, or school-sanctioned clubs/organizations as in the sample shown below.
Nothing else in the code has changed and shirts must still be tucked in with a belt. Other t-shirts such as college t-shirts will NOT be allowed (those would only be allowed on announced days). This allowance within the current code is a reward from principals to students, please keep in mind this privilege can be revoked at any time if abused. If you have any questions please ask your campus principal.
