Like a majority of private and public schools, we ask that students and parents follow the dress code when they are purchasing Prom attire, just as they would follow the dress code for daily classes and other school events.

A pupil who wished to stay nameless out of considerations of retaliation by the college, informed FOX 2 that she is anxious in regards to the clothes merchandise. The administration neither confirmed nor denied the declare to FOX 2.
