Prom season is here but some fashions might be too revealing for school.
Tulsa Public Schools does not have a district wide dress code but some schools are opting to enforce their own set of guidelines. Some schools are encouraging student to avoid gowns that show too much skin.
Dresses that would be deemed unacceptable at schools like Broken Arrow and Jenks High Schools include:
No "cut-outs" in dresses that expose the midriff.
Hemlines must reach the bottom of the students fingertips or lower.
No plunging necklines or high cut slits.
The back of a gown must dip no lower than a students waist.
A Senior at Broken Arrow High School told FOX23, "I can understand why they would want the back and front of a dress to be a certain length so that nothing inappropriate shows."
The student went on to say that given the many options, it wasn't difficult to find a style that was appropriate for the dance.
Schools say students have been given fair warning about what is and isn't acceptable in an attempt to avoid any issues at the dance.
If students have any questions about the dress code they are advised to talk with their school administration.
