NH high school student challenges dress code

Posted: Updated:

PLAISTOW, N.H. (AP) — A 17-year-old New Hampshire high school student has challenged her school dress code after the principal said her top's cap-style sleeves violated the policy, which prohibits sleeveless shirts.

Elizabeth Skerry of Plaistow has started a campaign, "The Right to Bare Arms," at Timberland Regional High School. She also took her concerns to the school board last week, wearing the outfit.

Skerry told the Eagle Tribune (http://bit.ly/TFKOrj) she felt victimized. Principal Don Woodworth said the new code was intended to eliminate any questions students might have about what was appropriate. It also prohibits exposed underwear, see-through attire and clothing that exposes the stomach or cleavage. It says shorts, skirts and dresses can be no shorter than mid-thigh.

A school committee is reviewing the dress code.
