    PJ wearing students not allowed in class

    Date: 05.28.09 | by Judge Tom.

    A senior prank at Male High School in Louisville, Kentucky resulted in 100 or so students wearing pajamas to school.   The high school’s dress code requires students to wear school uniforms.  Even though the pj-wearing-pranksters  supposedly brought their uniforms with them to school and planned to change back into them before class, some of the students got in trouble and weren’t allowed to go to class.

    What do you think about senior pranks?  Do you think the students should have been allowed to go to class if they changed back into their uniforms?  What about if they didn’t change?  Should there be an exception to the dress code for “pj days”?
