Grossmont High School students hold protest, chant “F*** The Dress Code”
GROSSMONT (KUSI) – In response to changes in the dress code, Grossmont High School students organized a rally against the new dress code policy.
The scene was chaotic, before turning violent.
The student-led demonstration began on campus during lunch time. But when the bell rang, many students refused to return to class. According to school officials, that’s when police were called to the scene to calm the situation and keep students safe.
A lockdown was called, and law enforcement remained on-campus to ensure an orderly rest of the school day.
The students say the new dress code bans tops that show a student’s shoulders, like tank tops.
KUSI was on campus as the anti-dress code rally was occurring. The video below shows the students marching together, chanting, “F*** The Dress Code.”
After the chaotic protest, the Public Information Officer for the Grossmont Union High School District, Collin McGlashen, gave his perspective of what happened on-campus.
A senior at Grossmont High School also spoke to KUSI News, and shared the viewpoint of the students. Both perspectives can be seen in the video below:
