An email was sent to the Logan faculty Wednesday about the Halloween "dress code." Those who read the message are now aware that the adminstration will not tolerate Halloween costumes baring cleavage and thighs.
I am not supportive at all of the new regulations. Any Logan sophomore, junior, or senior is familiar of the way students dress every Halloween. At Logan, students tend to show their Halloween spirit by wearing costumes that show some skin.
I remember in the past seeing girls with shorter outfits and guys wearing no shirts, all for the purpose of their costume,thinking nothing of it really. I never saw a costume extremely revealing. I never saw a girl's rack or whatever she had underneath her short shorts,or skirt. I
never saw any private parts from my peers.I know for a fact that teachers at Logan also saw the costumes that I did.
Yet, serious issues never arose around those revealing costumes. If the Logan studen's "poor choice" in costume was that bad, or provocative, why hasn't this rule been enforced strictly in the past? Why attempt to, all of a sudden, regulate costumes, or enforce the student dress code for that matter, starting this year? What makes the administration think that students will cooperate with new demands?
As far as I'm concerned, Halloween costumes have never provoked violence, or caused teenagers to "get it on" because of the sexual appeal a costume may have.
In addition, Halloween costumes do not distract those from getting their educations. When have you seen anyone failing a test because the person in front of them was wearing costume in which their thighs were exposed? If anything's distracting students on Halloween, it's the whole idea of trick-or-treating, and binging on candy galore - basically everything AFTER school.
Good luck to the Logan Administration on a successful, no thigh, no cleavage baring Halloween.
A shout out to those spandex lovers, leotard,skirt, and shorts wearers, and my gentlemen who just don't see the use of a shirt on Halloween and Spirit days here at Logan. Thank you for sprinkling our school with
