Dress Code for High School
Original post made by Paly Parent on May 30, 2007
As the warmer weather arrives, I am shocked by what many high schoolers think are appropriate wear for school. From beach wear to pajamas (for finals!), it appears that anything goes. Underwear showing above and below the scantiest clothing for boys and girls seems to be OK and as a parent I feel that I can't be the only one who thinks this just isn't on. If the teachers or admin. staff came to school dressed like this, it would be deemed unprofessional, so why is it deemed OK for the students. Apart from anything else, how can we teach them what is appropriate wear for interviews for jobs, colleges, etc. if the schools allow them to wear what they want.
Since the majority of our high schoolers have been to middle school in Palo Alto and are used to dress codes, why not take the same rules into high schools and teach the kids a life lesson.
