Parents, Students Up In Arms Over Dress Code Violation at an Illinois School
A recent dress code violation within the Belvidere school district has students and parents angered.
More than 400 comments found their way to a post written by someone who outwardly referred to themself as a "Karen" but there's a good chance she's anything but, based on the situation.
BELVIDERE NORTH HIGH SCHOOL DRESS CODE
Here is BNHS' dress code, according to their student handbook.
Clothing must cover areas from one armpit across to the other armpit, down to approximately 3 to 4 inches in length on the upper thighs.
Tops must have shoulder straps. Rips or tears in clothing should be lower than the 3 to 4 inches in length and no undergarments should be visible.
Shoes must be worn at all times and should be safe for the school environment.
Headgear including hats, hoodies, caps, or other coverings are not allowed unless permitted for religious, medical, or other reasons by school administration.
Specialized courses may require specialized attire, such as sports uniform or safety gear.
The outfit in question was not specified for being regular attire or gym class attire but, either way, school officials did not approve of her clothing.
Not only did it spark the attention of students, but also parents.
Here is the outfit the student was wearing which was a violation of BNHS dress code:
The student in the above photo commented to many irate parents with the following:
As a parent, I see nothing wrong with this wardrobe. (Maybe I'm a Karen too.) Hopefully, school officials take note of the ridiculousness of making an issue out of this outfit.
