EDMOND, Oklahoma -

Some Edmond middle school parents are angry their kids have been cited with dress code violations at Central Middle School.

Their complaints revolve around leggings, which are very popular amongst teenage girls.

Cynthia Lukehart's daughter is a sixth grader at Central Middle School.

Lukehart said her daughter was threatened with in-school detention on Monday, because the shirt she was wearing with her leggings wasn't long enough.

"She has been wearing this outfit for eight months," said Lukehart. "And she wore these in the fifth grade, and they're very popular, they're what all the girls are wearing."

Mike Taticzek said his daughter was threatened with detention and suspension for the same issue on Tuesday.

"It's a waste of my time; it's embarrassing for my daughter," said Taticzek. "I could see if it's revealing or something."

An Edmond School District Spokesperson sent out a statement Tuesday that said in part, "The middle school dress code is based upon the premise of recognizing fashion without sacrificing decency, safety, and appropriateness."
