Parents in Pennsylvania are pissed at Pottstown Middle School's principal for banning UGG boots in the classroom.
Principal Gail Cooper sent a letter home on Wednesday that said the school's been having a problem with students hiding prohibited items like cell phones in their "open top boots", so she had no choice but to ban the footwear.
But here's where it gets a little ridiculous.
The letter goes on to say:
"Students may continue to wear outdoor boots to and from school to protect them from cold, snow and ice but need to change into a pair of sneakers or shoes before entering homeroom. Students may also continue to wear lace up, tight at the ankle, boots, shoes and high top sneakers."
It sounds to us like cell phones are the real problem, so wouldn't it make more sense to crack down on those instead?
The school already has a policy that states phones "must be turned off" and "kept in the student’s locker between 7:55 a.m. and 2:30 p.m."
And then there's the fact that these kids are in middle school!
