Principal Threatens Student: ‘Come With Me to the Control Room to Change Your Shirt or We Will Arrest You’

Summer is an honor roll student at Hickory Ridge High School in Harrisburg, North Carolina. She’s about to graduate with a scholarship for her university, where she is set to go on a pre-med track.

But according to WCNC, the senior’s college career may be on the line after an incident regarding her school’s dress code got her placed under a 10-day suspension.

Summer was eating lunch in the cafeteria when the principal approached her. She was wearing an off-the-shoulder shirt that covered majority of her top and back.

School rules state that off-the-shoulder shirts, and ones that reveal cleavage, are not allowed.

Since Summer’s shirt appropriately covered her upper body, she thought she was adhering to the school’s rules.

But the principal asked if she could cover  up with a jacket. Summer said she thought the shirt was fine and that she didn’t have a jacket. Her friend even offered to let her borrow hers to cover up.

After accepting the jacket and zipping it up, Summer thought this would be the end of the incident:

“I completely understand why a dress code is put into place but I feel like after I put on that jacket it should have been subdued.”

She was then told that she needed to go to the front office to change her outfit.

Summer was not on good terms with the principal. According to WCNC, because of the strained relationship between them, Summer’s mother had told the administration not to discipline Summer before calling her first.

Later in the day, after the school could not contact the mom, administrators approached the student in the auditorium. She ws told she had to go to the front office or face arrest. Summer refused:

“They can’t take me anywhere unless my mother is called. So I said ‘I apologize, I can’t go anywhere with you unless my mom is called.”

The principal didn’t accept her response:

“[The Student Resources Officer] was within five feet of me, he had his hand on his gun. [The principal] said ‘I’m gonna give you an ultimatum. We have tried to call your mother. You either come with me to the control room to change your shirt or we will arrest you.”

Once in the control room, she was given a 10-day suspension for insubordination and will no longer be able to go to her own graduation.

According to the Independent Tribune, the school district’s communications director, Ronnye Boone, released a statement on the incident:

Cabarrus County Schools complies with all laws and regulations governing privacy, as well as policies set by the Cabarrus County Board of Education. And as such, we are not at liberty to discuss students or student discipline.

On social media, users argued if the suspension and the dress code violation were related:

Summer was upset that she worked hard in high school, only to be treated like this as she was about to leave. Her mother plans to appeal the suspension.
