 Most parents were happy with the fact that all students are required to have a uniform code for the up-coming school year, but some did not approve of the quality of the shirts, or the mandate that only Dickies brand pants had to be purchased for the High School. The restrictions that would not permit " Skinny Jeans" and only allowing non-cargo pants was agreeable. However ,to be forced to buy from one company was not .

  1. While I have supported the switch to uniforms, the sudden change to one manufacturer is totally without foresight and reason. One only has to go the Dickies website and see that skinny jeans and cargo pants are listed as "best sellers". No one company will assure the adherence to the dress code. That is the parents and the school management's responsibility. To have to rebuy clothes is an unnecessary financial burden being placed on the families with little or no guarantee of any positive outcome. Who made this decision and why was it rolled out halfway into the summer?
