Minnetonka high school Principal David Adney told The Star Tribune: “This new trend doesn’t seem right, it’s troubling. Cover your butts up — I’m just going to say it straight up. We’re seeing too much.”
Adney sent out an email blast to parents on Monday urging them to “talk to their daughters about wearing spandex-like yoga pants or other tight-fitting leggings with T-shirts that expose “more leg and backside” and can “be highly distracting for [male] students.”
“It must have touched a nerve,” said Adney, referring to the response from parents and students to his email blast.
“It’s not about trying to be the clothing police, it’s just a sensitivity issue,” Adney said. “Hopefully with us being the first to speak up, it will create a lot of conversations.”
