Boys distracted by girls’ skinny jeans
Female students at Kenilworth Junior High School in Petaluma received the instruction from an administrator during a school period last week.
The apparent ban sparked criticism from some students and parents, who said girls at the school should not be penalized for boys' behavior.
Kenilworth administrators have since said they may have gone further in their statements to girls than they should have. There has been no change in the dress code.
Principal Kathy Olmstead says skinny jeans and yoga pants are still allowed and only leggings with no covering such as a skirt are banned.
