Some kids think that wearing dresses or suits every Friday is too uncomfortable. Some kids even think that the dress code we wear Monday through Thursday is complicated and hard because there are so many limits. But there are things about the dress code that many students feel are fair and reasonable.  Students at EMS overall have mixed views about the dress code.

Some dress code rules are helpful because they allow students to show their respect for the school.  For example, students are not permitted to wear ripped jeans. This creates an atmosphere of respect at the school. Also, the rule about not wearing “short” shorts is a good idea because those kinds of shorts can look and be very inappropriate. Harrison White is a fifth grade student thinks that the dress code is just fine.

Several students we interviewed do not like the constraints of our current dress code.  Lara Rozanski is a fifth grade student who does not like our current dress code.  Sixth-grader Cara Toback loves leggings and wishes she could wear them every day.  If she could add something to the dress code, it would be jeggings. Aidan Hunter is another fifth grade student who has concerns about our dress code.  He thinks that the Vineyard Vine sweatshirts should be acceptable, but students are only aloud to wear EMS sweatshirts. Parker Diaz, another sixth grade student,  doesn’t like getting dressed up on Fridays. He prefers t-shirts instead of collared shirts.

A new student, sixth grader Joey Steiner thinks the new dress code can be confusing.  Sometimes she is not sure what to wear on certain days. One overall agreement among students is the request that they should be able to wear shorts after Columbus Day if the weather is warm.

Overall there were so many mixed feelings about our dress code. There will be probably be a debate about the dress code until (or if) it gets changed in the far future.
