Stricter dress code is least of student worries

As early as the first day back at Skyline High School, students were exchanging words about a topic that had been virtually extinct until this school year.
Rumors about a dress code had leaked out to the entire student population: tank tops, strapless shirts and even the ever-so-popular yoga pants were now banned from the eyes of the administration.
With the new dress code regulations, girls would not be able to wear strapless dresses to homecoming.
After the complaints and confusion, administrators finally put an end to the rumors and set things straight with the Leadership for Officers class at Skyline. Yoga pants were allowed at school, and strapless dresses could in fact be worn to homecoming.
Yet, this homecoming dilemma was only the first of the student body’s worries about the annual dance that is looked forward to by freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors alike.
After the back-to-school dance Sept 9, the homecoming dance was temporarily cancelled due to the amount of “dirty dancing” that had occurred that night.
Few students were stopped for their so-called atrocious dancing, and the dance had occurred and ended just like it had the previous year. No one knew that on Monday morning an email would be sent to the entire staff about homecoming being put on pause.
The Associated Student Body of Skyline is working hard to come up with a creative solution to the dancing issue.
No one wants his or her homecoming taken away from him or her, especially the seniors whose final homecoming dance will be this October. But, if a change is not made, then those strapless dresses may not be worn to homecoming after all.
