Girl suspended from school for wearing wrong shade of green
SICKLERVILLE, N.J. (AP) — An 8-year-old girl received a one-day suspension from her southern New Jersey public elementary school for wearing a shirt that was the wrong shade of green.
The girl's mother tells WTXF-TV that Winslow Township Elementary School No. 4 sent her daughter home Tuesday for wearing a kelly green polo shirt, which was deemed to be in violation of the Camden County school's dress code.
The school's dress code specifies that shirts and blouses may only be white, dark green or navy.
Winslow Township School's code on dress and grooming says "school attire can influence a pupil's behavior and potentially impact the academic environment."
Other parents have reported that their children were suspended for wearing wrong colored shirts as well.
The girl's mother called the suspension "a little ridiculous."
