Lacey High School Dress Code sign now

William Zylinski has recently been promoted to the position of Lacey Township High School principal. As his first order of business, he has decided to strictly and unreasonably enforce Lacey's school dress code; more specifically the rules concerning torn and tattered clothing. However, the rule regulating torn and tattered clothing has never been clearly defined, despite the forced consent that students are held to by singing the Lacey Township High School Student Handbook agreement. It has been brought to my attention that school districts may not make and or enforce rules that encroach on the freedom of self expression unless self expression is deemed disruptive to the learning environment. Self expression is an American ideal of liberty protected by the Constitution of the United States. Two years ago, the dress code was revised because the administration had come to the realization that a rule prohibiting open toed/backed shoes was not affecting student's learning environment. Now, the rule stating that students are not allowed to wear "ripped and tattered" clothing is another example of an unjustified rule. If you go into any major store, it is nearly impossible to find denim skits or pants without being torn, ripped or destroyed; it is a contemporary style. Prior to this week, this regulation has not been enforced; more specifically before William Zylinski was promoted to principal. It is unreasonable to suddenly ask students to stop wearing clothing that until now, hasn't been "banned" during the school day. If a rule needs to be enforced, it must be enforced continuously through the year, not in the middle of the school year.
If in fact a dress code is to make the learning environment less disruptive, then enforcement of the dress code should be just as or much less disruptive to the student body. Until this week, when ripped jeans and varsity jackets were banned, the learning environment in Lacey High School was uninterrupted. However, once the announcement was made about the enforcement of these rules, the student body has been in an uproar. Students are missing school to get "inspected" to make sure that they don't have one rip or tear on their pants. They are being sent home to change. In no way are ripped jeans and varsity jackets a disruption to the learning process. Lacey High School has so many more important problems that the newly instated administration should concern themselves with than that of enforcing the dress code.
By signing this petition you agree that the administration at Lacey High School needs to reevaluate and change the dress code so that the pursuit of liberty is maintained within public school, but that the learning environment will not be disrupted by these reforms.

    I, along with my parents and the rest of my family, completely agree with this statement. If the school wanted to decide to finally enforce the dress code, there should have been an assembly, a letter to parents, and a date specifying when this would star
