School District Forbids Students From Wearing Pajamas to Online Class

The Springfield School District in Springfield, Ill, has a new rule for the kids who are taking online classes - No pajamas allowed.

According to CBS affiliate WCIA, they have a dress code which prohibits the comfy clothes for students doing remote learning, and parents have mix feelings about it.

They told the district they shouldn't have that rule if they will be in their own home.

"I made the decision for my kids to be at home and I don’t really see how any district can come in and say what my kid can’t wear in my house," Elizabeth Ballinger told WCIA. "I don’t think they have any right to say what happens in my house. I think they have enough to worry about as opposed to what the kids are wearing. They need to make sure they’re getting educated.”

While some parents are against this rule, others think it's a great idea. They stated it made sense for students wearing normal clothes to demonstrate respect ready to learn online.

The school district made a statement to WCIA that in the outlined in its handbook, "Generally speaking, there are no definitive one-to-one consequences outlined in our handbook for any disciplinary reason. Incidents of misconduct and subsequent consequences are treated on an individual basis.”
