Pinkerton will maintain current dress code

Proposal proved controversial with many parents and students


“I have two more to go through Pinkerton, so I’m happy right now,” Beth Doherty said.

Dave McPherson has a daughter attending Pinkerton and said he was satisfied with the school’s decision.

“I am happy that Pinkerton decided to focus on other matters of importance other than uniforms,” he said.

Ahrens’ letter said it was expected that students would follow the school’s established dress code and come to school dressed appropriately for school and not dressed for the beach or for a party.

“We will continue monitoring current trends in fashion and will continue to explore dress code options for the future,” Ahrens wrote.

He said the current code will continue to be strictly enforced. Pinkerton is also working with clothing vendors and officials say they hope to give parents and students a chance to purchase quality clothing through links on the school’s online site if they wish.

“This will give parents and students many options for school clothing that is appropriate for school,” Ahrens wrote, “hopefully creating a sense of improved professionalism in clothing appearance.”
