Seems more like Mr Chapel is the distraction now...

He's enforcing the rules as they stand on the dress code. The Public Opinion is making this a distraction, this story doesn't seem to be news worthy. Mr. Chapel is doing the job we are paying him to do. If parents can't understand and abide by what is written in the handbook on the dress code then it opens the door for the school administrators to step in. That's a prefect case to institute school uniforms.

Hurrah ! for Mr. Chapel......abiding by the Code......isn't it to bad parents and students don't understand. It really starts with the parents, it really does NOT cost an arm and leg to outfit your children decently. I know I have raised 7 of my own children and 4 of other members of the family. Your little girls DO NOT need to be dressed like little strumpets in grade school. That just invites the same look in middle school and high school. The little boys all the way up the ladder into high school, the "gangsta" look with underwear or even none from the back. If this is allowed even AT HOME it does not teach any self respect from the day one.
Boobs glaring at you or butts and more. Does not keep the mind on actual learning school work.

Every year the previous principal would give his "no butts,bellies, or boobs" speech to each class at their beginning of school meeting, then do nothing.Small wonder that the kids are shocked that they can't dress like "gangstas" or "hoochie mamas."

I'm glad to see someone finally address this issue since it obviously isn't going to be the parents

MANY, MANY OTHER SCHOOLS NEED TO FOLLOW THESE SAME GUIDE LINES MORE STRICTLY. I've seen many young ladies and young men with no shame about them, when asked I'm told if you have it flaunt it. What is so beautiful in wearing see-thru blouses without no under pinnings under the blouse. or shorts so short Daisy Duke would be ashamed. Young men wearing their pants withe the croutch down to their knees and the tops of their underwear showing above the tops. I have one thing to say to them the pants are worn with "wishful thinkings, sorry I wish them luck.

I'm all for a dress code but requiring the Jews to wear gold stars is a little over the top.
