I strongly support the current dress code. My three kids all graduated from Clovis High School and all of them graduated from college, thanks in part to the Clovis schools. Further, I have five grandkids in the Clovis schools.
The letter on Feb. 1 by William Pleasant is very wrong. I am a small-business owner, I employ about 25 part-time employees, most of whom attend Clovis High or did before graduation. I can assure Mr. Pleasant that I would not hire a young person who was not clean cut and their personal appearance was not up to the standards as set by the Clovis Unified dress code. Many small business owners feel the same way as I do.
Further, I totally agree with the letter by Jeff Davis on this subject (Feb. 2).
