DARLINGTON, England – A principal’s letter to parents telling them to stop wearing pajamas to school has struck a nerve.

When Kate Chisholm, the head teacher at Skerne Park Academy in Darlington, England noticed more parents wearing pajamas while dropping off and picking up their children from school, she decided to send home a letter.

Dear Parent/Carer,

I have noticed that there has been an increasing tendency for parents to escort children to and from school while still wearing their pyjamas and, on occasion, even slippers.  Could I please ask that when you are escorting your children, you take the time to dress appropriately in day wear that is suitable for the weather conditions?  While this may seem to some to be a minor point, I am sure you will agree that it is important for us all to set our children a good example about what is appropriate and acceptable in all aspects of life, not only from the point of view of their safety and general well-being, but also as preparation for their own adult life.  Thank you for your co-operation in helping to raise our children’s aspirations.

Kind regards,

Kate Chisholm

While some parents agree with Chisholm, others believe it is not her place.

Some parents even started showing up in pajamas in protest, reports.
