Some female students at a Utah high school were a bit surprised when they saw their pictures in the yearbook.
After baring their shoulders in their original photos, the yearbook photos showed them a bit more covered up. Some students wearing tank tops had sleeves added digitally. The Salt Lake Tribune reported one girl wearing a shirt with a V-neckline was given a square-neck top instead and had her tattoos erased.
Staff at Wasatch High School told KSTU-TV students were informed of dress code requirements for picture day and were told their pictures might be edited if they didn't follow the rules.
But students argue that the altering of the photos appears arbitrary.
“I feel like they put names in a hat and pick and choose who,” sophomore Rachel Russel told the news station. “There were plenty of girls that were wearing thicker tank tops and half of them got edited and half of them didn’t.”
The school admitted that its rule should have been applied more consistently in the yearbook.
“We only apologize in the sense that we want to be more consistent with what we're trying to do in that sense we can help kids better prepare for their future by knowing how to dress appropriately for things,” Superintendent Terry Shoemaker told KSTU.
