Bandanas. These colorful accessories are recognizable everywhere and are frequently worn as headbands.

Recently, there has been some confusion surrounding the rules regarding bandanas. Are they allowed during spirit week or not? Are they classified as gang related?

On Western Day, bandanas were not allowed to be worn, but this was not made clear to some students who were reprimanded for dress code violation.

A few years ago, bandanas were banned because of their association with some gangs. Now that it isn’t as much of a concern anymore, assistant principal Aaron Howell said that the bandana rule is under review for next year.

For now, however, wearing a bandana is against the dress code.

To clarify, Howell explained that sometimes exceptions are made to the dress code for special days, such as wearing cowboy hats on Western Day, wearing sunglasses on Hippie Day, etc.

“The dress code is a lot more lax during spirit week,” Howell said. “We need to celebrate.”

Although the dress code isn’t as strict during spirit week, it is up to the administration on what rules are exempt.

    love the article. I think they do need to be allowed and not just during spirit week. People wear headbands all the time, and these are a lot like those.

    I LOVE the name of this article and I’m glad this was written to help clarify the intentions behind not being able to wear bandanas

    I LOVE, not only, the name of this article but also the sentence structure is phenomenal; Professor Cannon would applaud you, Sebastian Petzinger. I can’t wait to read your next writing pieces.
