I feel that some of it is reasonable. For example, the sagging pants, daisy duke shorts and overall skimpy clothes.

Some of it is reasonable and to me common sense but the parents are grown and can do whatever they want.  Silly to try to enforce on adults.

And what is done in an emergency? If a parent comes to pick up their child to be seen at the ER or urgent care, are they told to go home and change if they are wearing a low cut tank top?

I feel like it will make parents even less involved. My son's school had a dress code for field day for parents. I thought that was ridiculous then. This one is just plain silly. Some of it is common sense, sure. 

As far as the clinic goes, I don't want to wait for a parent to go home and change before they pick a kid up for fear of being turned away due to a "dress code" issue. Because we are a charter, some of our families live a considerable distance from school.

This was my concern as well!

I am surprised this even was allowed to be sent home.  I wonder did the school district lawyers get a look at this?

The hair covering items do not bother me, however, I have seen some other things . . .

I'm sure that would be an exception. It will be quite difficult to enforce grown adults into a dress code anyway.

I promise it won't be long until a court overturns it. Frankly, I've given up on some parents. Just this week we had a couple visit their 1st grader for lunch. They were both, along with their daughter (maybe 3 years old?), all decked out in their motorcycle club "colors," complete with the do rags and all. I recall a couple moms that stick out in my mind; one with "Porn Queen" across the back of her pink shorts and another with an eyeball tattooed on each side of her cleavage. Otherwise it's the usual as described in the "dress code" above. I really think parent dress code is at the bottom of the list of things to be concerned about.

Sometimes you see these kids in middle school, then you see their parents and you know the apple don't fall far from the tree.

I don't know how they will enforce a dress code with the parents. It's a public school. Although they want to, they can't discriminate against poor taste.
