Local middle school dresses up its policies

Something new is coming this fall to D.C Virgo Middle School; a dress code. Students will be required to wear khaki, navy blue or black bottoms, collared shirts, and no flip-flops. School officials hope by enforcing a dress code the students will be better focused and get them ready for high school. ”Most of the middle schools have followed suit with that because they feel into the high schools. All four high schools are going into a standardized dress code so they feel like it's going to make it easier for the kids,” said Virgo PTA President Edwina Marbley. It's also going to be easier for the parent's wallets. Students may wear any color shirt, as long as it's collared, allowing them to have a broader variety of choices. Also local stores are giving discounts to dress code shoppers during these financially tough times.
