Lawmaker Proposes Dress Code For Parents Visiting Their Kids’ School

A lawmaker in Memphis, Tennessee is proposing a dress code for parents who visit their children’s school.

Antonio Parkinson is working on a bill that would outline how parents dress and act on school campuses.

Each district will be able to make their own rules, Parkinson said Today that it was a meme about parents dressing in pajamas that led to the proposal of the bill, “I then got on the phone with some of the leaders in my district and learned how big of a problem it really was.”

Some support a dress code for parents but others say it leaves room for rules that may be based on prejudice, homophobia, and sexism.

Others say people who may be financially disadvantaged would feel like they weren’t dressed nice enough to come to the school which would lower parent involvement.

The bill could go up for a vote as early as July and be signed into Tennessee law in Fall of 2020.

Do you think schools should have a dress and behavior code for parents?

What could the benefits or problems be?

“Keeping Michiganders safe during this stretch of dangerously cold temperatures is our priority,” Whitmer said. “Such widespread, extreme conditions have not occurred in Michigan for many years and it is imperative that we are proactive with record-low temperatures being predicted by the National Weather Service. Wind chills are predicted as low as 50 degrees below zero in many places, such as metro Detroit which is especially unaccustomed to these temps.”

It will become partly cloudy Tuesday night, with scattered snow showers, and will be dangerously cold.

Temperatures decrease to -9 degrees, with wind chills by dawn Wednesday of -30 to -40 degrees.

Many schools will be closed today and Wednesday due to the severe cold.

This will be our coldest day since 2015

…And remember, your pets are at risk during the cold temps, too…

Don’t forget to bring them inside!!!
