HOUSTON, Texas (KPRC) – Starting this month, James Madison High School, in Houston, Texas, will be enforcing a dress code that will affect students and their parents.
School Principal, Carlotta Outley Brown addressed guests and parents on its new dress code in a letter that stated: “Parents, we do value you as a partner in your child’s education. You are your child’s first teacher. However, please know we have to have standards. Most of all, we must have high standards.”
New guidelines listed on the letter include preventing anyone from entering the building or even being on school premises wearing a satin cap or bonnet on their head. The dress code states that shower caps of any kind are not allowed and hair rollers will no longer be permitted.
“If I go into school, I’m going to go in presentable, but I have this on my head. I don’t see how this sets a bad example for a child,” said Lisa Hubbard, a parent.
