Thompson Elementary

Soaring Beyond Expectations

  • Dress Code

    • HISD allows each individual campus to establish its own dress code or uniform policy. The goal of a dress code is to ensure that students stay focused on learning and to create a positive and safe environment. We appreciate parent and student support in upholding our dress code. Violations of the dress code policy may result in disciplinary action. Please note that our school administration has the final authority for decisions regarding the dress code.

    The faculty and staff of Thompson Elementary School expect students to come to school each day dressed appropriately to ensure a focus on learning and to preserve the health and safety of everyone on campus.

Our campus values and needs the support of parents in upholding our dress code. The following guidelines outline appropriate dress for all students:

    New students:

    Students who come to Thompson after the school year has started will have two weeks to follow dress code requirements.

    Dress codes are implemented to promote school safety and minimize distractions. Please see the Student Code of Conduct for actions that may be taken for disregarding the school dress code. Students who fail to comply with the standards may be warned, sent home to change, or provided an alternate article of clothing if available. Excessive disregard to follow the dress code has additional discretionary consequences that an administration can enforce.
