Change Jar: Dress code

Caryn Corliss, Staff Writer

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Students are always eager to crack into their closets and find an outfit that sets them apart or keeps them in tow with the latest hits in the fashion world. With a set of tighter regulations and enforcements, some students feel restrained this school year.

We asked for your two cents: How do you feel about the new dress code?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][image_with_animation image_url=”1614″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Nhi Bui, 11

Honestly the only thing we are allowed to wear without getting in trouble are t-shirts and baggy sweatpants sometimes, honestly they should just give us uniforms if that’s how they’re gonna be.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][image_with_animation image_url=”1615″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Sara Scholten, 12

Guys can’t have headbands or more than one earring in an ear; then why can girls? Why is it gender discriminatory? [It’s] prohibiting guys who maybe are gay or transgender, who believe they’re the wrong gender. Why can’t they wear makeup? That’s not fair. Why are we stopping someone from being such an individual about that? That’s not hurting anybody. That’s not hurting anybody if they choose to [express] themselves.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][image_with_animation image_url=”1617″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Minali Nemani, 11

I feel like there should be a dress code, but skinny jeans [are] the current fashion, so I don’t think they should restrict that, especially when everyone wears that.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][image_with_animation image_url=”1618″ animation=”Fade In” img_link_target=”_self”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]Linda Truong, 11

Some people don’t have that many clothes, and now they’re banning so many things. You have to go out and buy new clothes, and some people can’t afford that. And if they wear certain things that they already have, because they can’t spend money, they end up getting sent to PAS, and that’s a whole day wasted of learning new things in your regular class because of something that you wore to school.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
