Middle School Dress and Grooming


Prosper ISD Middle School Dress and Grooming

The District Middle School Dress Code policy applies to all schools in Prosper ISD grades 6-8, with the exception of students in uniform for a school sponsored extracurricular event.

*The responsibility for the dress and grooming of a student rests primarily with the student and his or her parent(s) or guardian(s). Any clothing or personal appearance which in the judgement of an administrator disrupts the educational environment shall not be permitted.

● The district prohibits pictures, emblems, or writing on clothing that is lewd, offensive, or advertises or depicts tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, drugs, sexually related topics or anything that represents gang/secret society membership. Additionally, any clothing that promotes hate, violence, and/or suggestive slogans as depicted in television or media, is also prohibited.

● See-through or sheer clothing is allowed when worn over a shirt that fully covers the midriff and covers undergarments.

● Appropriate footwear must be worn at all times.

● Shirts (including t-shirts), blouses, tops, etc. must reach below the waistline. Muscle shirts, halter tops, tube tops, and off the shoulder blouses are prohibited.

● Undergarments may not be visible unless otherwise determined by administration.

● Dresses, shorts, skorts and skirts must be at or below fingertip length.

● Leggings/Jeggings and yoga pants or any other form fitting athletic gear may ONLY be worn under shirts, skirts, shorts, or dresses that are fingertip length or longer.

● All pants must be worn around the waist area. Students are not allowed to have pants “sag” below the waistline.

● Hats and hoods are not to be worn at school, unless on specially designated days.

● Visible tattoos and ornamentation are prohibited.

● Sunglasses, unless prescribed by a physician, are prohibited inside.

* This code is not to be construed so as to apply to those students in certain elective subjects such as band or organized sports, or to students in voluntary student organizations which are called upon from time to time to represent their school in public events. Teachers and sponsors of these subjects and organizations may continue to require those standards of dress and appearance that they deem appropriate and which have served in the past to mark those school representatives with honor and distinction.
