Lexington, N.C. – A mother who says her daughter was sent home from school over her dress being half an inch too short, plans to wear the same dress to the senior’s high school graduation. As reported by Fox 8 News, Violet Burkhart says she was sent home from Central Davidson High School with two hours remaining in the last day of her senior year after taking a measurement of the dress, which she says she had worn on several other occasions.
Amy Redwine, Violet’s mother, is quoted as stating of the incident, “I literally looked back at the clock and I’m thinking, it’s 1:00 in the afternoon on her last day of her senior year. My daughter — it’s supposed to be one of her best days and she’s there crying.”
Redwine is further quoted as stating of her plans to wear the dress to Saturday’s graduation, “If her dress is too short, then my dress is too short and I’m going to wear it in front of everybody and be proud just like she should have been able to on her last day.”
