The new additions to the East Ridge High School dress code will cause more problems than create solutions.

To begin, the students have been informed way too late in the summer. Parents and guardians do not have enough time or money to prepare for this sudden change. Most students have collected school spirit shirts over the years because they prefer these shirts to polos. Polos can be expensive and also very uncomfortable for some students, as tucking them in makes them feel self-conscious. In addition, freshmen have to wear navy blue polos. This would allow freshmen to be singled out, as well as create a segregated environment..

It is starting to seem like they are more worried about the way we dress than they are our educations. School is a place for learning, not a place where students should be removed from class in order to be reprimanded for dressing in the clothing that is made available to them.

We respectfully request that the faculty reconsider the new, stricter rules to the dress code. Thank you for your consideration, the East Ridge High School student body.
