Minnetonka high school addresses dress code concerns

| No Comments

A Minnetonka principal released a message Tuesday about the growing trend of young girls wearing inappropriate yoga pants to school, according to Star Tribune

The message was in the form of a concerned e-mail sent to parents encouraging them to have a conversation with their daughters about wearing spandex pants that may be see through.

The main concern of high school students was that there was a differentiation between wearing yoga pants to be comfortable, or wearing them to be inappropriate.

According to MinnetonkaPatch, some students tweeted about the e-mail claiming it was a ban on yoga pants, although it officially was only a call for modesty.

Changing clothing trends have always been an issue for high schools as they try to adjust to what the kids are wearing with each passing generation. Some trends that have been an issue in the past include saggy jeans and low-cut tops.
