HOWDY JACKETS!

IT'S HERE!!!!! The first week of school is finally upon us!! Our teachers and staff have been busy little bees, preparing for our students. We are all excited and ready for the new start.


Enclosed you will find information needed to help you ease back into the routine of a new year. Please make yourself familiar with each week's newsletter. This will be our main source of distributing information for the campus. Our BIS Facebook page will be used for sharing the great things happening at BIS as well as quick updates and reminders. Our campus website is a great resource for information as well (www.boydisd.net)


We ask that if you have questions, please call our front office or email a staff member; we will not be able to respond via Facebook Messenger. We will always make it our goal to give your timely feedback.


Thank you,

Student Dress Code

Dress Code

Dress and Grooming (All Grade Levels)

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

4. Clothing that is appropriate for athletics but is not appropriate for the classroom.

5. Students in grades 6-12 from wearing wind shorts, โ€œsoffeโ€ shorts, or shorts of similar material.

6. Student in grades 6-12 from wearing clothing made of spandex (i.e. jeggings, leggings, yoga pants, tights, etc.) or similar materials not covered by a skirt, shirt or dress that is shorter than fingertip length when standing with arms hanging loosely to the sides.

7. Clothing that has holes or tears above fingertip length exposing skin.

8. Leather/spike accessories, ear gauges and visible body piercing (the only body piercing ornamentation allowed is jewelry in studentsโ€™ ears). Clear spacers are allowed in the side of the nose only.

9. Headgear in any building during school hours at principalโ€™s discretion.

If the principal determines that a studentโ€™s grooming or clothing violates the schoolโ€™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.
