Dress Code / Uniform

NEW Dress Code Policy for the 2021-22 School Year

August 3, 2021

Dear Parent/Guardians: 


Welcome to Irving STEAM Magnet School. As part of the school orientation process, I would like to provide you with information about our Student Dress Code, a copy of which is enclosed. Due to the unprecedented circumstances that this pandemic has caused, we will not be mandating uniforms this school year. Instead, we will be adhering to the Irving STEAM Magnet Casual Dress Code. However, students may still wear Irving uniforms if they already own them. 


Our dress code calls for students to choose clothing that is reasonably modest, meaning clothes that covers the body well, comfortably and does NOT contain offensive or derogatory messages.  Guidelines surrounding modesty seek to minimize distraction and improve the safety of students.


We believe that appropriate student dress contributes to a productive learning environment, and we want to ensure the health and safety of our students. As noted by Board policy, all students shall be required to show proper attention to personal cleanliness, health, neatness, safety, and suitability of clothing and appearance for school activities. 


In every case the dress and grooming of the student shall not: 

• cause actual distraction from or disturbance in any school activity or actually interfere with the participation of a student in any school activity; 

• create a hazard to the safety of him/herself or others; and/or 

• create a health hazard. 


Please take a few moments to review the Student Dress Code with your child. If you have any questions or would like additional information, please feel free to contact the main office at 323-259-3701. We look forward to a productive school year.

Physical Education Uniform

Students are expected to dress in their PE uniform every day during physical education class. Part of your child’s success in Physical Education is incumbent upon the daily wearing of the PE uniform; grey shirt, blue shorts and tennis shoes. This attire allows for more mobility, greater flexibility, and healthier body; in addition to the development of being responsible. PE Uniforms can be purchased at the Irving  Student Store
