A School In Michigan Has Backed Away From “Modesty Ponchos”

After the plan sparked controversy on social media, Divine Child High School in Dearborn, Michigan says it will no longer force “modesty ponchos” on girls who attend prom on May 12 in a dress that doesn’t meet the Catholic school’s dress code. The plan made headlines after the ponchos were put on display at the school along with notes that read, “If your dress does not meet our formal dance dress requirements – no problem! We’ve got you covered – literally. This is our Modesty Poncho, which you’ll be given at the door.” The school’s Dress Policy includes detailed requirements banning plunging necklines, plunging back openings, exposed cleavage, visible midriffs, cutouts beneath the traditional bra line, and slits that go higher than an inch above the knee joint. Even though the school has removed the Modesty Ponchos, the dress requirements will apparently still be in effect.
