Uggs Banned At Pennsylvania Middle School
School officials at a Pennsylvania middle school have banned students from wearing the popular boot brand Uggs after students were caught concealing cell phones in their boot of choice.
According to the schools new rule it’s not just Uggs but any “outdoor, open top boots” which consist largely of the Uggs brand. The school will however still allow “Lace up, tight at the ankle boots” according to a letter from the schools principle.
Students can still wear the boots on the way to school but must then remove them and replace them with another pair of footwear, according to the schools principle:
“Students may continue to wear outdoor boots to and from school to protect them from cold, snow, and ice but need to change into a pair of sneakers or shoes before entering homeroom.”
After the school posted the new rule on its official Facebook page which let to angry comments including:
“It’s ineffective they will just keep finding other places. Plus my phone fits in my sneaker.”
An angry parent followed up that comment by noting:
“When the schools started paying to raise and clothe my children then maybe … maybe they can have a say in dictating my child’s wardrobe.”
Do you think a ban on Uggs is a silly movie by the Pennsylvania middle school?
