Chicago Sun-Times - - TOP NEWS -

SPRING­FIELD — The school dis­trict in Illi­nois’ cap­i­tal has up­dated its school dress code pol­icy for re­mote learn­ing, say­ing stu­dents can’t wear pa­jama pants, slip­pers or hats while on cam­era when classes start this month.

Spring­field Pub­lic Schools of­fi­cials said they hope stu­dents ap­proach on­line classes the same way they would at­tend­ing classes in per­son, and that means fol­low­ing a dress code that also bars hoods, sun­glasses and ban­dan­nas, among other things. The dis­trict said stu­dents should also be “sit­ting up out of bed prefer­ably at a desk or ta­ble” dur­ing re­mote learn­ing, ac­cord­ing to its school man­ual.

“The ex­pec­ta­tion is that the dress code is up­held,” Ja­son Wind, direc­tor of school sup­port, re­cently told school board mem­bers. “We don’t need stu­dents in pa­ja­mas and all those other things while on their Zoom con­fer­ences.”
