Cape Girardeau school relaxes dress code for 2019 school year

In 2011, the school decided the students could only wear polos and khaki, navy and black pants.

The rules were made a little more relaxed a few years later but Superintendent Neil Glass said now they are taking it back to how it was before 2011.

"We're not so much caught up on the colors we use to say that they had to be solid colors it's pretty much open-ended there the jeans are open-ended, the khaki colors are open-ended," said Glass, "The one thing we didn't go as far as athletic wear the principals were pretty much wanting to keep the athletic wear for special days, dress down days so they wanted to keep those reserved for those special days."

"It's a big improvement now it's like we don't have to worry about going to school and getting dress coded for stuff that we feel like we should wear in order to learn," Solomon Hulbert a junior at Cape Central said he thinks the dress code will make back to school shopping less stressful.

"You don't have to carry a whole list and go through the school website to find out the school dress code because trust me I did that my freshman year," said Hulbert and he thinks it will improve the learning atmosphere, "If I look good, I feel good, if I feel good, I learn good."
