To whom it may concern,

I'm not pleased with the uniform decision for the 2020/2021 school year. The education of these children is what is most important important not what the children are wearing! As long as the children are not wearing revealing clothing or clothing that would be considered derogatory or inappropriate why does it matter? Implementing a dress code policy and strictly enforcing it would be a much better option at the time.

Let the children be comfortable! Times are hard enough as it is and I'm sure most of us are in the same boat and our children have outgrown their uniforms from the previous year!  Why burden everyone with even more expenses?  Many people in the community are already struggling as it is! I know I am.

Uniforms are going to be hard to find as the school year has already started not to mention being costly even if parents are only having to buy polo shirts. Also please take a moment to consider that all dressing rooms in clothing departments are closed so we wouldn't be able have our children try on clothes to ensure they are the appropriate size, nor do I want to put my children at risk of exposure for covid by taking them from store to store or wasting money that I really don't have to spare on clothing that may not fit appropriately.  Most stores are also not accepting returns! Another concern is what happens if there is an out break of covid-19 once the children return and schools have to close again? What good would these uniforms be then?  Furthermore, Uniforms tend to run smaller than regular clothes and many of the children already have non uniform  clothing that fit and would be appropriate to wear to school.

Please seriously reconsider this policy, and the hardships that many people in our community are facing!!

Sincerely,

Britney Brickhouse
