A recent email from the high school principal reflects refreshing honesty and common sense:
Dear Parents of Female Students:
After a lot of deliberation, I'd like to clarify the Dress Code dealing with leggings, tights, and/or form fitting clothing covering the legs.
This type of garment is considered an undergarment and does not conform to the Dress Code. A proper outergarment must be worn outside of the tights or leggings and it must conform to the Dress Code. To be honest, I am not too familiar with the purpose of this type of clothing, I took the advice of our female administrators. They were adamant that the intention of this type of clothing was meant to be an undergarment.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
