Columbia, SC (WLTX)- As Midlands students head back to class we have a quick check list for parents.
Some school districts are once again reminding parents and students about a few fashion statements that are not necessarily appropriate for school. Parents are asked to save the flip flops for the beach. Open toe shoes are considered a hazard and students may be asked to change.
Also, a major fashion statement could be a major fashion no-no this year. The popular trend of off the shoulder tops are not welcomed to some schools this year. Traditionally, tank tops must be a certain width across your shoulders.
Parents are reminded to check their district and school dress policies to make sure they are not breaking the rules.
And new this year, 3rd, 5th and 11th graders are required to receive specific vaccinations. YOu can check out the DHEC guideline for those vaccinations here.
