Student Dress Code

Thank you to all of our parents and students for helping keep our campus in dress code!


We will continue to enforce our dress code policies per the TISD Student handbook with an emphasis continuing on the following items:


- All students must wear clothing that adequately covers the body. Shorts and/or skirts must reach the mid-thigh. Spaghetti straps, strapless, backless, see-through and low-cut tops are not allowed. Tops must cover the midriff.

- All male students must be clean-shaven and may not display any piercings including the ear.

- Students are not allowed to wear hats, bandanas, or other head coverings.

- Student hair must be that of natural color. Students that need to address this particular portion can meet with their Assistant Principal to discuss a solution and timeline.


All dress code policies can be found in the TISD Student Handbook linked HERE.


*Seniors - Dress code will apply and you must be in dress code in order to walk the stage at graduation!

Student ID Reminder

Students must have their ID with them at all times while at school. While it has always been important, it is imperative for the lunch process in the coming weeks as our cafeteria staff will be transitioning to a new process where they must scan the students' ID. Keypads to input student ID numbers will no longer be available at lunches. In addition, students must utilize their ID when using TISD bus transportation.


If students need a replacement ID they can report to their alpha pod where directions on purchasing a new one can be given.

Student Cell Phone Reminders

The district permits students to possess personal technology devices for safety and educational purposes; however, these devices must remain silenced during the instructional day, and shall only be used in accordance with all guidelines established in the Tomball ISD Digital Resources Acceptable Use and Internet Safety Policy. This includes, but is not limited to:


- Cell phones may be used during class for instructional purposes and in accordance with each teacher’s guidelines. Please note that teachers may choose to prohibit cell phone use in their classrooms.


- Cell phones may be used before and after school, between class periods, and during lunch as long as students follow TISD acceptable use guidelines.
