Dress code dispute a lot to shoulder for Charlotte-area senior
Posted May 19
Harrisburg, N.C. — A senior at Hickory Ridge High School outside Charlotte worries her college future is in jeopardy, and it's all stemming from a shirt she wore.
On Wednesday, the girl wore a green shirt that rests just off the tops of her shoulders and exposes her collarbone.
She says, while she was eating lunch, the principal approached her to ask if she had a jacket.
A suspension notice that the girl shared with WCNC says the principal told Summer to cover up with a jacket. The girl responded with, "I think my shirt is fine.” The principal then told her that her lower back was also completely exposed, so she was still not in compliance with dress code.
She says the principal told her she would have to change her clothes.
