Student council asks for dress code change

-A A +A

If the student government at Los Alamos High School has its way, or more accurately the entire student body, students at the school could see a massive revamp of the dress code.

Student Council President Soumyo Lahiri-Gupta, Vice President Jason Dunn and other officers of the council approached the Los Alamos Board of Education about making modifications a recent meeting.

According to Dunn, their survey questions to the student population revealed two main gripes: the required length a pair of shorts must meet and the way the dress code is enforced.

During the presentation, Board Secretary Matt Williams asked the students in attendance just how difficult it is to find shorts that go to four inches above the knee, the code’s current requirement.

“It’s very hard,” said one student, while another added that Capri pants are another option, but “they aren’t shorts.” The students added that it gets very hot in the classrooms during the summer months, making it very uncomfortable.

At the meeting, they presented the school board with a report of their findings as well as a suggested replacement of the code.

“We believe that the adoption of this dress code will improve the overall morale at Los Alamos High School and increase student spirit,” Dunn said.
