New Dress Code Lightens Up

Gabriel Ramirez, Contributor

 The La Serna High School dress code has undergone a change this year. Not a drastic change, but one that is definitely worth noting. Administrators and faculty have loosened the reins in regards to the rules surrounding how students express themselves through clothing. Bans have been lifted on:


  • Low-rise jeans
  • Belt buckles with numbers and letters
  • Shorts shorter than mid thigh
  • Halter tops, crop tops, and spaghetti straps


The consequences for violating said dress code have also been altered. In previous year, a second and third offense could land a student in Viewpoint and a fourth offense would result in a three-day suspension, the new policy limits the punishment to a simple confiscation of the offending clothes with a parent conference, if needed.
