School Bans Uggs
It seems like school officials are always playing catch up. Just when it seemed that they had figured out every way to keep kids from bringing cell phones to class the little buggers found a new method of sneaking in their devices, hiding them in their popular Ugg boots. So now officials at a suburban Philadelphia school have taken the next step.They have banned the trendy footwear. According to a story in the Pottstown Mercury Principal Gail Cooper issued the following edict.
“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,” Cooper wrote in the letter.
Kids can still bring their cell phones to school of course but need to stash them securely in their lockers before the class bell rings.
