HHES students will be required to wear school uniforms.  School uniforms consist of:
Shirts: White, burgundy, yellow

Socks: White
Shoes: Sneakers or flats.  No heels, sandals, flip flops, or open toed shoes. 
The HHES Dress Code Policy is aligned with the APS Dress Code Policy and includes:
  • The school administration reserves the right to determine whether the student’s attire is within the limits of decency and modesty, and it interferes with or distracts from the learning environment or the operation of school.
  • Clothing must fit correctly. Pants, shorts, and skirts must be worn at the waist.
  • Sagging pants will not be permitted.
  • Halters, see-through blouses or pants, low cut blouses, sun dresses, blouses made to show the bare midriff (stomach), tank tops, or muscle shirts will not be permitted.
  • Pants with holes or frayed edges are not acceptable during school. Pants may not drag the floor.
  • Undergarments must be covered by another appropriate article of clothing at all times.
  • Earrings larger than the size of a pencil eraser are not permitted for young men.  Ladies shall not wear heavy, dangling, and/or distracting jewelry.
  • T-shirts and pants must be in good taste (no suggestive wording or illustrations or advertisements for items which are illegal for elementary school students- i.e. alcohol and tobacco products, weapons, violence or of such a nature to cause disruption in the school).
  • Hats, curlers, hoodies, head scarves, combs, hair picks, bandannas, sweat bands, sunglasses, and gloves may not be worn during school.
  • Head apparel, except for religious or medical purposes, shall not be worn inside the school building.
  • Shoes must be worn at all times. Flip-flops, open toe shoes, or house shoes are not permitted for safety reasons.
  • Clothing should not be worn backwards or inside out.
  • Heavy/over-sized jackets are not permitted to be worn in the classroom; however, sweaters and light-weight jackets are permitted.
