My daughter is 6 and she started to a new school today. She is a new kid and she didn't know anybody so her day so difficult as it was.. Then she was sent at the Principal's office because her clothes were not appropriate for the school.
I have read the school hand book 5 times today. The only rules there are about the students' clothing are
1. no shorts or skirts that are shorter than the child's arm length
2. no showing belly buttons
So I got a call in the middle of the day and got a lecture about my daughter's clothes. They said it was too many colors for one student, distracting for the class and inappropriate school clothing in general. This picture was taken right after she got home:
Do you think this is inappropriate clothing for a 6-yr-old?
She goes to a standard public school.
No, I do not see anything wrong with the outfit. It is trendy and that might be what they are objecting to. But as a public school without uniforms, I do not believe they should be. The damage they have done to your daughter has already occurred on her first day. That in itself is reason that they should not have sent her to the principal. If they had a problem she should not have been brought into it. I would immediately email the school superintendent and the members of the school board and request a meeting for tomorrow. Ask the principal for specifics. Stay calm. Help your daughter to feel confident and fit in. By all means do not discuss this in front of her. She has enough on her plate without carrying this adult problem. Let us know what happens. I hope we are some support. But remember to not be overly emotional in your meetings and your communications.

There NOTHING wrong with that according to the dress code... I would request a meeting with the superintendent and the principal ASAP!!! And bring that pic or your child in that out fit. That's NUTS!!!! (oh and I work in a HS... you should see what those kids wear, even while meeting the dress code!!)

My kids like bright colorful clothing so I don't see where the problem is. It's not like she's wearing booty showing shorts or anything.
