Community reacts to dress code policy change

This school year, the CESJDS administration updated the required length for dresses, skirts and shorts. Moving away from previous years’ below-the-knee rule, the school initially decided to base an appropriate length on “if you’re comfortable and respectful of the environment,” Dean of Students Roslyn Landy said. According to Landy, the move was made because many teachers wanted a more general rule for pant length; however, she found that the change of comfortable and respectful of the environment was too vague and that many students were confused about what it meant. The school has since clarified the rule to mean fingertip length.
