HOUSTON (CNN NEWSOURCE) – Dress codes for students are expected. However, Madison High School in Houston has set a new dress code for parents.
The new parent dress code states parents cannot come on campus is they are wearing hair curlers, shower caps, pajamas, or certain style of shorts or leggings.
The new dress code has insulted some parents.
Parent Rosemary Young says she had to rush to the school for an emergency after her son broke his arm.
Young was wearing a satin cap at the time, something that would now be considered as inappropriate with the new dress code.
“So it doesn’t mater how a parent should come. If we come here belligerent, out of control, things of that nature– that’s what you have the police for. But what I wear should never be an issue. I’m not revealing, I’m not doing anything, I don’t have any weapons,” said Young.
While some parents say they feel there are some racial undertones in the new rules, the school district feels differently.
Madison High School’s principal says the dress code is helping students by keeping the atmosphere dignified and free of distractions.
