Has been the same for two years but they are trying to make it have a slogan and everything and the new principal is going to enforce the dress code finally.

My son was mortified when he read the banner in the office saying " No Crack-- Front or Back....policy will be enforced." I guess they had a problem with saggy pants, whale tails and clevage?
HAHA!!! I wish the high schools that I have worked at had this slogan. I swear I saw more boobies there than I thought possible!! Every time you turned around you just about saw the nipple of some 15 year old girl!

I remember wearing uniforms in middle school and people still were made fun of. Then again, preteen/teen girls will always find ways to be brutal. Lol.

Re: Ticked at the middle school

Is it just a dress code, or do they have to wear uniforms? Every school I've ever gone to has had a dress code, so that's nothing new... but it would suck to buy all new school clothes, only to find out your kids need a uniform. They should have sent a letter or something if they're required to wear uniforms.

DS1's school is private, and they have a strict dress code that requires very specific uniforms... all parents know about it upon registering their child, but we also receive a handbook at registration that goes into detail about the uniform rules.

But I do know kids are brutal. Heck, even the BRAND of uniform makes a difference around here ... now you can buy unis from Justice, which is the "waaaay cool" place to get them. If you don't, you're out.

Personally, I'd love to see the dress code extend into middle school. Like wow to the cracks in front and back, and why does a 12 y/o need to wear shirts with questionable slogans anyhow, I ask? Crazy.

To the OP, they totally should have let you know sooner, but if you can return some stuff or swing the cost, you could look at it as a blessing in disguise?

Re: Ticked at the middle school

i totally wish my kids school had uniforms and/or a dress code. My HS had a kind of strict dress code, down to no ear rings and collar length hair or shorter for boys. I liked it.

Well, I do recall the kid wearing the shirt from Gap making fun of the kid wearing the shirt from Wal-Mart, like I said, brutal.

That's how.

That's how it was when I was in middle school. My parents bought my uniforms from nicer stores but for those who didn't they were often made fun of. Students found ways to make uniforms cute and more stylish, you could definitely see the difference.

I'm so sorry for that! It must suck-I hate shopping generally. My son actually ha uniforms at school and I think I like that better. I'd like it even more if I had a girl in achool. I just remember what I used to wear-even with a dress code-and it makes me shudder.

Oh middle school...it's been adjustment for all of us. N is going into 8th grade, so I'm sort of use to it. It is soooooooo different than elementary school; the freedom they are given.

They should have sent out letters regarding the dress code.

I love uniforms. The one ps around here with one is khaki or navy bottoms and white or navy top. Easy to follow.

I agree they should have you let you know sooner.
