EBHS Dress Code - Daily and Special Events


East Bernard - Daily Dress Code

     In an effort to streamline expectations across the campuses in EBISD, the following dress code guidelines will be the standard for students in grades 5 - 12.  (See Elementary website for PK-4 Dress Code expectations)  The district’s dress code is established to teach grooming and hygiene, prevent disruption, and minimize safety hazards. Students and parents may determine a student’s personal dress and grooming standards, provided that they comply with the following:

East Bernard High School - Special Events Dress Code

     It is important to remember that while participation in EBHS special events is designed to enhance the overall high school experience and create lifelong memories, participation in these events is purely voluntary.  

    It is our intent that these guidelines will provide standards that are reflective of the values and morals of the community, while allowing the students to enjoy the events in a more formal atmosphere.  In short, the students will be allowed to deviate from the normal school dress code, but with age appropriate limitations.  We believe that we have created guidelines that will withstand the ever changing fashion trends and styles, and that we have now provided our students and parents with easy to follow guidelines while shopping for that special outfit.

    I would like to thank all who have spent their time, effort, and diligence in researching and spearheading the development of these guidelines.  However, as with every event that falls under the EBHS umbrella, the principal reserves the right of final interpretation regarding dress code issues.  Any questions regarding the Special Events Dress Guidelines should be directed to the high school office.
