I actually called the middle school to ask them what they were thinking at 253.571.5600 (Phone), and they hung up on me hahaha! What a disgrace. STEELER NATION!

Here is the email address of the Superintendent of this school.
I'm going to send him an email and think all of us should do the same. LOL

"saying his choice of clothing was inappropriate - and that Seahawks shirts or colors were the only exception allowed outside the uniform school's normal strict dress code."

What an (insert bad word here) joke

Thanks for the address. Make sure to give the school a quick call too please, it won't take but 30 seconds of your time and I could tell they are already pissed off. They know they made a huge mistake when someone from Wisconsin calls their school to complain LOL!

I emailed him saying that I was outraged and I was hoping that the US Dept of Education will take appropriate measures against this unacceptable decision.

Haha, apparently this happened last year too. A kid wore a Colts jersey to Saints Appreciation Day in New Orleans and got booted from school. People who take themselves that seriously are dangerous people.

Thanks for the address! Just fired off my two cents. Think they still have a little chub because they lost the SuperBowl? I agree 24, not only are they dangerous, but life is too short to be this serious. Crazy stuff.

Wonder if the Dad showed up in his Steelers gear to pick him up?

If I could get sent home from school when I was 13 for doing this, I'd do it every week lol. Though I don't blame the school for doing this, they have a strict uniform policy except for Friday's before Seahawk games, where people can wear a combination or atleast one of the Seahawk colors.
They could have just told him to take it off though.
