The alarm clock rings on a school day and you know the drill. In no time at all, you’re running late. Showers need to be taken, breakfasts need to be eaten, lunches need to be made. Then it’s time to round up the troops, pile them into the car, and drive them to school because they missed the bus. In the midst of all of this chaos, mom didn’t have the time to take the curlers out of her hair or dad is in his pajamas.
Many schools have dress codes for their students, but in one Floriduh school district, those codes aren’t sufficiently all-encompassing. At least not for Lauderdale Lakes school board member Rosalind Osgood.
According to a story in the Sun Sentinel, Osgood is tired of seeing parents showing up at schools in pajamas and sagging pants. She’s tired of seeing parents with their hair still in curlers.
It’s hard for me to tell a childnot to show up for school with hair curlers, pajamas or short shorts if they see parents wearing them. Parents need to lead by example.”
Osgood said it’s unlikely the district could write or enforce a parent dress code, but she and board member Robin Bartleman agreed principals could address the issue during Parent Night.
