CANTON, Miss. (AP) - Administrators say more than 100 Canton High School students were pulled from classes on the first day of class because their shoes violated the dress code.
Canton Public Schools Superintendent Dwight J. Luckett tells WAPT-TV ( ) that on Wednesday some students wore red shoes that can be identified with gangs.
The uniform dress code for Canton High School requires that students wear navy shirts, khaki pants or skirts, and black or dark-colored shoes or white tennis shoes. Luckett says the dress code has been in place for several years.
Luckett says some parents said the shoes their children were wearing at school weren't the same shoes they were wearing when they left the house.
Luckett says the students were allowed to return to class after they had changed their shoes.
