More than a dozen high school girls were not allowed into their homecoming dance in Utah for wearing dresses that were “too short,” KSL.com reported.Stansbury High School has a strict dress code that dresses must be at knee-length or lower. When girls showed up with dresses at knee-length, they were still booted from the school’s property, parents said.
“They told me that it was showing my knees so therefore it was too short, and in order to get into the dance I needed to put on leggings,” Erik Alvey, the school’s homecoming queen, told KSL.
The students and parents rallied to create a “Stansbury High Homecoming Spirit Massacre” page on Facebook, which has 3,677 likes.
As a result of the outrage, the school has announced it will hold a “replacement dance” and alter its dress code.
