MOLINE, Ill. — Some students at a high school in Illinois plan to boycott the school’s homecoming dance as part of a protest against the school’s “no grinding” dance policy.

This year, parents got a letter from the school, stating the school is putting a ban on grinding at homecoming. The letter says that grinding at dances is “offensive and inappropriate.”

According to WQAD, instead of spending their normal homecoming at Wharton Field House, some students will head over to the Moline Club to have their own dance.

The students are calling it an Anti-homecoming Dance.

The students say they should have the freedom to dance however they’d like.
