Officials at a Connecticut school are ruining prom a full week before the bad music even begins with a late dress code announcement — no gowns that are backless or have slits or cut-outs will be allowed. If students disobey these rules, they’ll be sent home even if they’ve already paid nearly $100 for a prom ticket.
Senior James Tate of Shelton High School in Connecticut posted a giant message on the front wall of his school reading, "Sonali Rodrigues will you go to prom with me? HMU [hit me up] — Tate." But grinchy Headmaster Beth Smith suspended him and banned him from prom for his gesture.
