DD1 has her first ever secondary school disco tonight. The ticket came with a warning on the back that children who arrived in 'inappropriate clothing or fancy dress' would be turned away and not allowed to attend another school disco ever again.
DD1 is now worried that her pink and black prom-style dress and footless black tights will be inappropriate.
I tried to reassure her that I would not let her out the door in inappropriate clothing and that it undoubtedly meant low cut tops and skirts that showed your knickers, but she doesn't trust me!
IABU to think the school should be a bit less cryptic in detailing the dress code for these things? And what's with the fancy dress prohibition anyway ?
I'm sure you're right about low cut etc and if they just said that it would be reasonable, but since the line between inappropriate and appropriate is a matter of opinion the threat "and not allowed to attend another school disco ever again" is way over the top.
LittleMy - DD only got the ticket yesterday and it was bedtime when she told me I needed to sign the back to say I had read the terms and would comply. No chewing gum is the other rule, am happy to comply with that.
Is your DD1 at school today? Can she ask her tutor or someone what it means? Or do you know anyone with older DC at the same school who can help? Failing those, I'd ring the school and ask - if the secretary gets fed up with people asking then maybe next time they'll be more specific!
