Rockport High School bans yoga pants
High school students in Rockport will no longer be dressed ready to do the downward dog in the middle of class.
Rockport High School, located on Cape Ann just 40 miles north of Boston, has banned yoga pants from campus.
FOX 25 reports that on Friday, more than 20 students were told to go home and change their clothing because their outfits were deemed inappropriate, while others received written warnings for wearing yoga pants or leggings.
The uproar started at a recent Rockport High staff meeting, where teachers complained that students were not properly complying with the school’s dress code, which bans leggings. When the school principal reminded students earlier this week of the rules at a school assembly, several male students got a bit rowdy and were told to leave the premises due to bad behavior, the story continues.
Rockport isn’t the only New England high school to outlaw stretchy, clingy pants. Schools in Vermont and Connecticut have also made headlines for refusing to let students wear the pants to class.
