While sections of the dress code do successfully protect students at PRHS and maintain a respectful image of them and the school, there are many conflicts with the dress code, including the sexualization of female students. The dress code tailors the male restrictions to content of shirts, hats, and other articles of clothing, such that they do not contain any inappropriate text or images. In the case of females, they face restrictions of certain tank tops, shorts, and dresses revealing parts of their bodies that aren't innately sexual.
In the face of adversity, we have two routes. We can take the effort to make a change, or we can come to terms with the irrefutable state of things. In the case of campus wide changes in policy at PRHS, students have failed to do either, opting for rebellion and complaints. As a staff, we urge them: have patience. Change is always difficult, but time heals all wounds, and it will heal the upset between students and admin.
