article imageCanadian high school bans yoga pants without long T-shirts

Canadian students at St. Joseph High School in Barrhaven will no longer wear popular form-fitting yoga pants unless covered by a long shirt. According to school officials, most yoga pants are too tight and revealing.
Officials say revealing the front and back of the pants is a violation of the school's dress code.
"Please remind your students that appropriate clothing is required. For our ladies, if they are wearing 'Lulu Lemon' pants or 'jeggins' of sorts, a long shirt covering them is required, otherwise they will be sent home and asked to change . . ." a statement in its daily announcements read, according to one student on Facebook as reported by CTV.
Students would have the opportunity of going home to change as the directive takes hold. But if they continue to fall short of the school's dress code, then they could face disciplinary action, school officials say.
"This is just as ridiculous as the school that recently banned certain types of balls because a parent got hit in the head with one. If you say it out loud – it really does sound silly – ‘my daughter's high school banned yoga pants,'" wrote a parent in a letter to CTV.
She said the school should be more concerned with the quality of the teaching delivered to students rather than the appearance of her daughter.
