Dress Code

Dress and Grooming (All Grade Levels)

DeSoto ISD will recommend standardized dress for the 2022-2023 academic year and revised the district’s dress code based on parent, student, and staff feedback.

• Monday: Gold Day (Gold polo style shirt with khakis or jeans)
• Tuesday – Green Day (Green polo-style shirt with khakis or jeans)
• Wednesday – Professional Dress Day (Non-branded or District branded blazers, ties, cardigans and sweater vest)
• Thursday – College and Career Day (ex. College or University spirit shirt with khakis or jeans)
• Friday – DeSoto Spirit Day (District or campus spirit shirt with jeans or khakis)

The above-listed recommended student dress days are not required dress for students. However, student participation in standardized dress is highly recommended and is offered to provide a framework for student community, pride, and belongingness. The District will provide information regarding how and where parents and staff can purchase any of the district-branded blazers, sweaters, or vests online or contact [email protected]. The district’s dress code teaches grooming and hygiene, prevents disruption, minimizes safety hazards, and maintains a positive learning climate. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the following:
DC 1
DC 2

Campus administration has final judgment on whether or not a student is in compliance with the dress code 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 and return to the classroom. If the problem cannot be corrected at school, the principal will work with the student and parent to obtain an acceptable change of clothing for the student in a way that minimizes loss of instructional time.

Repeated or severe offenses may result in more serious disciplinary action in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct.
