HOUSTON — A school is catching heat after releasing a dress code — for parents.
The letter, from James Madison High School in Houston, forbids anyone from coming onto school property while wearing pajamas, hair rollers, short shorts, low cut tops and more.
“To prepare our children and let them know daily, the appropriate attire they are supposed to wear when entering a building, going somewhere, applying for a job, or visiting someone outside of the home setting, I am going to enforce these guidelines on a daily basis at Madison High School,” reads Principal Carlotta Outley Brown’s letter to parents.
Brown adds that anyone who does not follow this policy will not be allowed inside until they are “appropriately dressed for the school setting.”
