MISD has waived the standard attire requirement for the 1st semester. Students may wear clothing in alignment with District guidelines. This can be found on page 50 of the Parent and student handbook on the MISD website https://www.midlandisd.net/cms/lib/TX01000898/Centricity/Domain/32/20-21%20Student%20Handbook.pdf
The district’s dress code teaches grooming and hygiene, prevents disruption, and minimizes safety hazards. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the following: Prohibited clothing includes all clothing that is or has: • See-through • Excessively short • Excessively tight • Bare at the midriff (torso must be covered) • Strapless • Worn lower than the intended design of the clothing (“sagging”) • Promotions or advertises violence, illegal drugs, alcohol, gangs, hate speech, profanity or pornography • Images or language that creates a hostile or intimidating environment based on any protected class or consistently marginalized group Campuses may impose additional limitations on clothing and will communicate those rules to parents and students at the beginning of the school year and keep them posted to the campus websites throughout the year. If the principal determines that a student’s grooming or clothing violates the school’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.
