DD is going to midle school this year. I did not know about the dress code til I was hit with it this past Wednesday night at open house. I can go along with most of it. Except for the one that saysshorts maybe no higher than 3 inches above the knee! inclusing gym shorts. That totally blew me away. Whatever happened to finger tip length?
Needless to say we had to go shopping for more shorts. She had none she could wear to school. All her shorts are finger tip length.
It took us all day just to find a couple fair of school approved shorts. Why not just go to uniform? It's be a lot easier!
