WACO (June 5, 2014) About 10 students were sent home Thursday morning from Cesar Chavez Middle School in Waco because of dress code violations and 30 more had to call parents to bring them something else to wear, school district spokesman Dale Caffey said.

Thursday is the last day of classes in the WISD and was designated Spirit Day at the school where the dress code was relaxed to allow jeans and Waco ISD T-shirts, but about 40 students arrived wearing such apparel as clothing with holes, revealing clothing and sheer shirts, Caffey said.

The 10 students who were sent home cursed at teachers, Caffey said.

The school has about 900 students and the other 860 did what they were supposed to, he said.

The school’s dress code normally requires collared shirts, solid color pants and bars blue jeans, baggy slacks, sweats and wind pants, among other things.

It’s the first such incident Caffey said he could recall.
