HERMITAGE, Pa. (AP/KDKA) – Students in a western Pennsylvania school district are breathing a sigh of relief after learning yoga pants haven’t been banned, but they are being told to cover them up.

But, for those who wear yoga pants to school, the fashion police will be watching – to make sure they are properly covered.

The Sharon Herald reported Wednesday that the district sent out a letter to students entering grades 8 through 12.

It says yoga and other tight pants require a long shirt or tunic-like top that reaches to a girl’s fingers when her arms are down.

The paper says school board member Paul Paoletta told administrators he’s been barraged with questions about the supposed ban.

Paoletta says some girls “don’t know how to wear them,” and are revealing more than they should.

The policy also applies to leggings, leotards and other tight apparel.
