For years, young boys and girls have been sent home for harmless clothing that is deemed “offensive” or “distracting” by school administrators. For example, on Friday, October 30th, I, a 16 year old girl, was stopped from going to my hardest class of the day for wearing a shirt that showed less than an inch of midriff, maybe 2-3 inches more if I raised my hands all the way up. I was wearing a turtle neck and high waisted jeans. The teacher who stopped me told me that I could get a new shirt from the office, but since we are in the midst of a pandemic, and my dad is high risk, I refused because I didn’t want to risk exposure. He then said to either get the new shirt or go home. My dad ended up bringing me a jacket. He had to take a break from his busy work day unnecessarily. I was deprived of my education because my shirt was seen as “offensive”. I was not allowed to go to class until I had the jacket. This is especially bad because due to the pandemic, I only go to school 2 days a week, and I was deprived of that. I don’t want this to EVER happen to ANYONE ever again. My objective with this petition is this: when someone is not in dress code there will first be a warning, and if the item is worn again, the student will get a detention, and if warn for the third time, you will be sent home. NO ONE will be sent home from school from clothing that isn’t offensive without two warnings. I further want to have the dress code reviewed by the school board with input from students and teachers as it is antiquated and sexist. Lastly, I want there to be a protocol of respect and discretion when administrators and teachers feel the need to dress code an individual. There is a long history of inappropriate behavior and comments made to students in violation of dress code in the form of public humiliation and even body shaming. I want to make one thing EXTREMELY clear; do not attack the people enforcing the rules. Instead, challenge the rules that are unjust.
