Dress Code and Cell Phone Use

Parker Middle School Dress Code

The intent of our dress code is to promote a good academic environment, maintain discipline, and prevent disruption of the educational process.

Parker Pride:  Expect Respect and Dress for Success!

  • Clothing cannot be offensive, distasteful, or distracting.

  • Shoes must be worn at all times.  

  • Hats are not to be worn in the building.  

  • Clothing that displays the midriff, sides or back are not acceptable. Sleeveless tops must meet the 3 finger rule.

  • Shorts/skirts must extend past the fingertips when standing straight even if tights are worn.      

  • Sheer or other “see through” pants are not acceptable.

  • Pants must be worn at the waist (not baggy or sagging).

  • Pajamas are not an acceptable form of outerwear (this includes spirit wear pajamas).

  • Torn or shredded clothing is not acceptable above the fingertip length.

  • Undergarments may not be showing at any time.


If a student violates the dress code, the student will be given an opportunity to correct the violation.  

Continuous violations may result in parent contact/disciplinary action.  The district dress code is online and the Parker dress code is in student planners.


Cell Phone Use


In an effort to be proactive with today’s growing social and interactive technology trends, it is our hope that our cell phone policy, in accordance with the HPS Student Code of Conduct, as well as HPS Board of Education Policy, will put into practice social and professional etiquette relating to wireless communication devices. Students must keep their cell phones and any other electronic device off, out of hands and out of sight from 7:20 AM to 2:30 PM, unless explicit permission is granted.


Violation of this policy will result in the following: 1st offense- the cell phone or electronic device will be confiscated and returned at the end of the day. 2nd offense - the cell phone or electronic device will be confiscated and returned at the end of the day and student calls to notify parent. 3rd offense - the cell phone or electronic device will be confiscated, parent pick up required and progressive discipline.


We understand that there are times that parents need to reach their child at school; please refrain from texting your child between 7:20 AM - 2:30 PM.  If after school plans have changed for your student, please call the main office and your child will be notified. In addition, students are always welcome to come into the main office to use the phone.  


Thank you for supporting our efforts to ensure students are utilizing digital technology for educational purposes only.  We will review cyber safety rules with students frequently and will offer reminders and reinforcement about cell phone use. The use of a cell phone is not a right but a privilege. When abused, privileges will be withdrawn.
