Guest ATENEARS Posted December 9, 2008 Report Share Posted December 9, 2008 Well, the title says it all. My Freshman daughter was on the Cheer squad for the Football season too and never had a problem. Today is the first day of the basketball season and her and her cheer mates all got called into the office and 'asked', or should I say 'threatened with detention of non-conforming', if they didn't call their parents to bring them sweat pants or other suitable pants to cover their legs. She was required to wear the school issued uniform during the school day to promote school spirit and the athletics. Ironically, the school issued uniform somehow violates the school dress code though. I'm assuming that the skirt is too short, but wasn't exactly given the 'official' reason. I'm not sure why it is permittable at a school function (the game itself), but not during the school day. And to tell you the truth, I was afraid to raise too big of stink along those lines because next thing they would do is omit the short skirts from games and force the cheerleaders to wear pants. (Then my daughter would kill me). She did have on leg-warmers, but apparently that was'nt enough. This is a public school ... and not a very strict institution to say the least. Did the Cheerleaders wear their uniforms during the day when you were in school? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
