Dress Code

Matt Meronk, Antigo High School dean of students, listens as AHS associate principal Anita Mattek explains to members of the Policy Committee how the present dress code at the high school is working.

A proposal by an anonymous Antigo School Board member to modify the district’s dress and grooming code to add an entire section drafted by this member to ban many types of clothing was rejected by a board committee Monday.

One added section asserted that shirts “with profanity, Black Lives Mater shirts, Confederate flag of symbols on clothing” ... “may not qualify under protection of free speech or freedom of expression” among an entire list of items.
