Dorm pants or pajamas?

On the top are dorm pants. The bottom, pajamas. Can you tell the difference? Neither can the Stafford County School Board members.

Last night, they learned about a proposed change to the dress code which would allow students to wear dorm pants. But it still forbids pajamas at school.

Michael Byers, principal at Colonial Forge High School, told the board that pajamas often have “holes where you don’t want them.”

The new changes would also remove the word “spandex” and replace it with any tight-fitting pants or leggings.
