She has a nice body to wear that , so I guess she thought she could get away with it. It's ok for a club, but not a prom!

That dress was far too revealing. Students are reminded that even at a dance, it is a school-sponsored event, and hence the dress code still applies. The dress in question was not only too short, but the chest and stomach being shown violates dress code as well. Rules are rules; follow them or don’t expect to attend an event like prom. Prom is a privilege, not a right.

I agree that her dress is inappropiate.

Did the school not inform the children of what is and is not appropriate attire for prom? I just can't believe that anyone in their right mind would think that they could attend a high school prom in that dress. Though I realize teens do not always exercise good judgment, that is where the guidance of their parents comes in. Surely the child's mother should have realized that the dress was inappropirate.

This isn't even club material! As a matter of fact, Im pretty positive she wouldn't be able to enter any clubs in columbia wearing that. Atleast not the ones I know of.

The dress suits the time of todays youths. It should be told by the student (or student body) what they are wearing to the prom, since the money from the prom is paid to put on the event, the ownership of the prom is joint. The school and the young adults who are helping to sponsor it with the moeny paid. If the school is to pay 100% of the cost then there is nothing the student could say.

Goes to show there are some parents who have no morals or values and don't teach their children any either

YES, to skimpy! Do parents not teach children about respecting themselves? That dress to me is a call for attention...and not the good kind!

I can't believe ANYONE would think that "dress" was appropriate for ANYWHERE. I would think that a "street walker" would be embarrassed to wear it!

Somehow we need to recapture a world view were young ladies value modesty and young men do too!

Skimpy Prom Dress? Tacky and Skimpy...... Please..........What was she thinking..... and her parents.... mine would have never let me out of the house!

Yes, her dress is more than to skimpy. How could her parents even let her out of the house with something like that own to go to a special occasion as your senior prom.
I blame the parents as well as the student. Good for the principal.

Too skimpy, was she wearing a dress?
There is more material in a military field dressing.
How in the world could her parents/guardians allow her out of the house.

Yes, Yes, and Yes. That is not a dress it's a stage outfit for a stripper. If I had a daughter there is no way that she would have ever left my house with something so revealing on. Shame on her mother.

My question is "Where was this child's mother?" School official were right in not letting her into the prom. This child looks like a straight up show girl. Her mother should have told her better. Let's blame the parents or guardian for this one.
