In a surprise move, the HCSD school board has decided to implement school uniforms in the new year. On November 11 the board decided to implement the policy in a 19-1 vote.
More surprisingly is the type of uniform that will be required. Many of the schools more hunting and ag type students will probably be pleased.
“I do not like the shoes kids wear nowadays. The sneakers like Nikes and Vans; they don't look as good as a pair of fresh boots,” said Joel Greene.
For shirts, everybody is required to wear an American flag button-up shirt. A pair of overalls is optional for boys, but a mullet is required. Any form of Wranglers will be acceptable as long as they are worn with a large belt buckle or suspenders.
Billy Joe Bob said, “I love the mullet. I've had the haircut since I can't remember when. My mom always gave me the haircut.”
All girls must have pigtails and/or braids. Teachers are required to wear the same uniforms as the students. For P.E, cut off shirts and jean shorts, also know as jorts will be worn. Students will have a specific pair of shoes for the physical education classes: crocs.
“Crocs are my favorite shoes, I can't wait to wear them and not get made fun of,” said Jimmy. “Crocs by far are the most comfortable shoe I've put on. It doesn't hurt my feet like other boots.”
Uniforms will be provided for those who do not own their own. The dress code will be enforced on February 30, 2019.
