Does anyone know if they r doing away with the uniforms next year? I was told they were going to be allowed to wear regular clothes. Oh I hope so and my kids r still in grade school but it would be SO much better!

I don't mean to sound ignorant, but I missed that article. How specifically have uniforms affected the attendance and out of school suspension numbers? I mean, I assume the suspension numbers have dropped since the uniforms are staying, so I guess I'm asking what one has to do with the other?
I'm just curious. I'm not trying to start an argument or anything.

its in this weeks elk citian. they say the out of school suspension is down bc of the uniforms. of course, they implemented saturday school (which is a joke) since uniforms and pass it out more freely so i dont really think one has anything to do with the other. he also said attendance is up bc of uniforms, but in the same breath also said the teachers implemented exemptions from semester tests for good attendance last year. i personally dont believe the uniforms have changed anything except appearance. of course, he didnt mention what the scores are on the state tests - thats what im curious about.

I was just wondering and I am very educated!!! It would me nice to only have to buy one kind of clothes for a year but if not that is fine also. My children do not care one way or another. I also do not live in Elk but choose to send my children there!!!

I honestly don't know what the uniforms have done except cause a bunch of bitching from the students. How are clothes suppose to change the grades, attitudes, and attendances of students? If any thing, they're not gonna wanna go to school and wear the uniforms. The students don't wanna wear uniforms their high school years, most of everyone who has already went through these years didn't have to wear them, why should these kids? The uniforms are really a pain in the ass. You have to make sure they have a certain clothing to wear or they are gonna get in trouble at school. I don't think the kids should be punished for not having a belt, wearing the wrong colors, or even having a little logo on their shirts. Some parents don't have the money to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe for their kids so they can go to school and not get in trouble! The uniforms are a pain in my ass and i would love to shove them up Roper's ass!!!!!!!!!!

i think the uniforms are fine. the teachers haven't been that strick on the students uniforms. and have you seen what the kids are wear'g these days. young girls dress'g like their hookers, and boys with their pants down to their knees. learn how to dress then maybe the schools wouldn't have to do uniforms.

If they would've just enforced the dress code before the uniforms they could've avoided the girls dressing like hookers and guys like gangsters. I dont mind the uniforms but honestly they are just clothes and it doesn't affect their grades. The kids hate them though and I think that's more important then Elk City wanting to look "fancy" and start a trend to the surrounding places.

uniforms solve nothing. there is still fights. people are still failing classes. there is still gangs. there is still cliches. i don't see what uniforms have solved. most of the kids HATE the uniforms. some people don't have the money to go and buy a new wardrobe. who cares if we have a belt on people still sag there pants. who cares if there is a logo on your shirt its just a brand of clothing. dear lord. and who cares if we are wearing the right colors. uniforms are pretty much taking away our freedom and taking our personalities away. how do they expect us to express ourselves when we have to wear dull colors. the colors are ridiculously ugly. girls still have there boobs popping out everywhere. it's called button up shirts to small for the chest area on bigger girls. some people are self conscious about there bodies so tucking in the shirts does not help at all. GET RID OF UNIFORMS!

I personally hate the uniforms. Yeah so they do look kinda cute with matching clothes, but don't think its necessary for the younger kids. It is easier to deal with in the mornings, knowing what they will wear the next day and all, but I also think it would make a better impact on the kids if the TEACHERS had to dress the same code. My son asked me why his teacher didn't have a uniform on and it was difficult to explain to a 4 year old. He doesn't think its fair and I'm sure other kids feel the same way. Maybe they should put that into consideration.

I'm sorry your boobs have not grown any yet and it's hard to tell if your a boy or girl from a short distance away cause all the uniforms look alike.
Maybe if you carried a pink notebook or something it would make it easier on your peers to determine your sex.
