EMHS New Dress Code sign now

Rules considering the dress code at Ellender Memorial High School have become ridiculously strict.

Students are no longer able to wear belts, jackets, sweatshirts, or sweaters of more than one color.

Hooded jackets, sweatshirts, and sweaters are prohibited.

These preposterous rules have even stretched so far that students are not even allowed to wear athletics sweaters which, I must add, displays the school name.

Students and parents have gone out, buying jackets and belts for school without any knowledge of these rules. Now, the school is expecting the students to buy new belts/jackets that match the school's expectancy.

After reading the Code of Student Conduct given to every student in Terrebone Parish, I have noticed that these new rules are not shown in the book.

The handbook says nothing about students' belts having to be one solid color.

It simply states, "Belts may not be more than one size larger then the waist. All students must wear belts if pants have loops. Waistbands should be worn on the waist."

Also, the rules do not state that students cannot wear sweatshirts or sweaters with a hood.

It says, "Optional: The name and/or logo of the school may be professionally sewn/printed on any shirt, sweatshirt, or sweater. No other emblem, writing, other than the school's nam may be on any shirt, sweatshirt or sweater."

These rules fail to mention anything about jackets.

(Jackets zip/button up from top to bootom. Sweatshirts are pullovers wish do not have zippers/buttons.)

As seen, these rules that are being set up by the school are not mentioned in the Code of Student Conduct.

Being a student at Ellender Memorial High School, I cannot stand for these new guidelines.

Signing this petition against these new rules will help keep the individuality of each student here at EMHS.

    As a parent who put one son through EMHS, and now my daughter is there for another year, I think the new rules are only going to ensure kids being sent to the office for ridiculous violations of this new dress code. There is only one thing I as a parent I

    all throughout life you will have laws/rules to follow. Rules help maintain order so that societies remain structured and not chaotic. Less emphasis on trying to break them and more concentration on following them just may equal a formula of success in th

    These new dress code rules are simply ridiculous and absurb. Ellender just came out of school of choice--they should be focusing on keeping it that way instead of the color of someone's jacket, socks, or belts. How is it possible that the color of one's j

    i don't believe the school should be so strict about the color of belts or socks. Also if the students brought their jackets through school they should be able to wear it no matter if it has a hood or not. You are at school to learn not to worry about if
