HS Touts 'Modesty Ponchos' If Prom Dresses Too Revealing

Incentive Mary Pat O'Malley, the theology teacher who came up with the idea for the ponchos said the garments are meant to prompt students to respect the dress code

A principal at a Michigan Catholic high school has rescinded a plan to require female students to wear "modesty ponchos" at prom if their dresses are too revealing.

Fox 2 reported on Monday that the ponchos would be passed out to teens at the dance who wore dresses that did not meet school requirements. If necessary, we may also provide wraps and shawls, as we have done at school functions for many years.

Some students and parents at Divine Child High School in Dearborn had called the policy a form of body shaming. "We have got you lined - actually".

"I do believe the school has gone too far with this", the student told the outlet. In the middle of this stressful and defining event for teenagers across various countries, a school in Michigan, USA, has made a decision to introduce "modesty" ponchos. "As we head to prom, we are to shake hands with all the teachers of course, if you walk through and also a teacher deems the apparel is improper you'll be supplied a poncho in the doorway".

During the interview, the student added that this was a form of shaming and she's anxious about publicly voicing her opinion.

The ponchos are displayed on mannequins at Divinity Youngster Excessive Faculty in Dearborn, together with a word: "In case your costume doesn't meet our formal dance costume necessities - no downside!"

Among other things, the dress code doesn't allow "plunging necklines", open backs, cutouts "below the traditional bra line", or any dresses that reveal visible tattoos or piercings (aside from ears), according to Fox 2. A student told the news source that "teachers will determine whether what they're wearing is compliant or not when they walk in the door".

"We are trying focus on the inner beauty and not draw attention to something that doesn't need attention drawn to it", O'Malley said. 'It was really intended as a deterrent and a lighthearted one at that'.

According to Fox, O'Malley and the school's principal agreed that parents haven't complained about the policy.

But a student who wished to remain anonymous said the note and display was upsetting.

"Especially if you bring a girl from another school, and you take them to prom and they come in and have to put that on, imagine how embarrassed they would feel", said John, a 17-year-old student at of the school.

The student expressed concern at the thought of coming forward against the ponchos, adding: 'Who knows what will happen to those who try and speak out against it'. The government neither supported nor denied the promise to FOX 2. Follow INSIDER on Facebook.
