Several students in Pottsboro were sent home after the principal at the high school there clamped down on the dress code.
Assistant Superintendent Ronnie Ray says students have been coming to school with piercings and torn jeans recently.
So the principal decided to take a stand. Fewer than ten students were disciplined, but school leaders are hoping the recent crackdown will set an example for all students.
At the beginning of each year, students must sign a form making them aware of the dress code policy which prohibits torn jeans, piercings, and other inappropriate appearances.
No one from Pottsboro ISD would talk to us on camera. But they did explain why the students were sent home, and they say the students are welcome back as soon as they correct the problems.
