Charlotte County Schools: 'No Ban on Skinny Jeans'


Charlotte Court House, VA - School officials in Charlotte County say it's not true. Skinny jeans have not been banned. But, the misunderstanding had some students fired up.

The confusion stemmed from a letter published by Randolph-Henry High school administrators  in the local newspaper, informing parents about the school's dress code.

"Pants that are excessively tight (ex/skinny jeans, 'jeggings,' skin-tight pants, etc) are not allowed," states the letter from Assistant Principal Shep Critzer.

Critzer says by skinny jeans, he meant skin-tight jeans and it didn't long for him to realize his mistake.

Text messages began circulating to students and parents began calling the school, wanting to know if skinny jeans had been banned.

"Skinny jeans are not the issue," said Critzer.

The public high school has a long list of other clothing items banned, and as fashion changes, the list does too.  According to the schools 2011-2012 dress code policy, tank-tops must be two inches wide at the shoulder, skirts and shorts must reach the top of the knee, biking shorts and pajama pants are prohibited, and leggings, jeggings and skin tight jeans must be covered by a skirt, dress or shirt that reaches the knee.
