A few days after a northern Idaho high school told students that bare shoulders or spaghetti straps would not be permitted at a homecoming dance, another northern Idaho school is nixing its cheerleaders from wearing their uniforms to school.
KREM-TV reports officials at Post Falls High School said cheerleaders must now wear leggings or warm-ups under their skirts during classroom hours. Meanwhile, a number of cheerleaders argue they're being singled out.
"It's like asking the football players to wear a skirt underneath their jerseys," one cheerleader told KREM-TV. "It's kind of ridiculous."
It's tradition at Post Falls High School and schools throughout the nation for many athletes—players and cheerleaders alike—to wear uniforms in school to encourage student participation.
