School Dress Code Petition
I have recently discovered that not only I, but many others at SMMHS do not agree with the school Dress Code. I feel that it is my place as a conflicted middle school student at SMMHS to do something about this, therefore I am creating this petition to share with the faculty, in order for them to understand how many people may be dissatisfied with the dress code.I believe that the school dress code should allow leggings, (just obviously not extremely skin-tight pants) and should have shorts be at least 6 inches above the knee, which would be mid-thigh length.
I feel that the current dress code is outdated, and unfair to the female population of the school. It does not reflect the current culture of society today. Adjustments should be made within reason. To require shorts to be no shorter than 3 inches above the knee is unrealistic. Shorts are not made that long (unless they are extremely unattractive uniformed shorts) and wearing anything under shorts (as was recently proposed by a teacher for field trip purposes) entirely defeats the purpose of wearing shorts (that is not to sweat to death). This is just one item out of many.
By signing this petition, I hope we can change this.
