Stamford School District enforces dress code
Teenagers everywhere are embracing today's culture of baggy jeans, do-rags, and midriff bearing tops. But one week into the new school year, Stamford School Superintendent Doctor Anthony Mazzullo says the wardrobes have gone too far.
On Wednesday, Stamford schools began reinforcing the city dress code. Tuesday, students and parents were informed of the guidelines that prohibit mini-skirts, revealing attire, headgear or clothing, which is considered obscene or disruptive.
Dr. Mazzullo says that the policy is not meant to deprive students of freedom of expression. He says students should dress in a safer more respectful environment.
Students who violated the dress code given were given a warning. Those who violate the dress code more than once are eligible for suspension.
