Minnetonka High School's principal sent a message to the parents of students Monday asking them to encourage their daughters to avoid wearing tight leggings as pants, the Star Tribune reported.
Dave Adney says that the leggings have become a distraction for other students, the Pioneer Press reported.
The message has spurred a debate. Some say that the leggings are no worse than the tightly fitting jeans that are still tolerated in schools, the Pioneer Press said.
"Cover your butts up," Adney said to the Star Tribune.
The Star Tribune said that the issue of dress code comes up just about every year in most high schools.
