• The Houston Independent School District and Burnet Elementary School recognize the importance of encouraging high standards in dress and personal grooming. This Dress Code was adopted by our school community in the spring of 2006 and modified in 2015 based on teacher/parent input.

    The Burnet school community recommended uniforms for all students. Uniforms are mandatory and may be purchased at places like Fiesta, Academy, Walmart or Target. If a child does not have a uniform or it is dirty, the parents need to send a note to the teacher stating the reason the child is not in uniform.
     
    We recommend that all students wear closed shoes for their protection and safety. The color and style are entirely up to you. NO high heels, open back slip-ons, or roller shoes/roller tennis (heelys) will be permitted.
     
    Hair should be clean and combed. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT BOYS' HAIR LENGTH BE TO THE COLLAR.
     
    The following are required:
    • Boys must wear white, yellow or royal blue shirts or polo shirts and khaki or navy blue pants or shorts.

    • Sweaters or sweatshirts should be royal blue, yellow or white. Jacket hoodies may NOT be worn in the school building. Students who continuously wear the hoodie inside the school will not be allowed to wear a jacket w/a hoodie to school.

    • Girls must wear white, royal blue or yellow blouses or polo shirts with khaki or navy blue jumpers or knee-length shorts or pants. “Capri” pants and “cargo style” bottoms are not allowed. Sweaters or sweatshirts should be royal blue, yellow or white. Jacket hoodies may NOT be worn in the school building. Students who continuously wear the hoodie inside the school will not be allowed to wear a jacket w/a hoodie to school. 

    •  Caps and hats will not be permitted.

    • ALL SHIRTS, REGARDLESS OF TYPE, MUST BE TUCKED IN. 

    • Oversized or saggy clothing will not be permitted. If the pants fit big and fall off the waist, the school will accommodate the student.

    • Jewelry will be limited to earrings (studs, drop earrings, and loops no longer than 1/2 inch). All necklaces should be worn under clothing.

    • All make-up and other cosmetic products, such as nail polish, perfume etc., will not be permitted on campus.

    • When students are entitled to “Free Dress” they will have to follow the Dress Code rules (shirts with graphic designs, tight fitting clothing or skirts, shorts or pants that are too short are not allowed).

    • Burnet Spirit and/or club shirts may only be worn on Friday.
