A New Hampshire high school student was reportedly told to cover up her MAGA apparel by the schools principal. The incident has reportedly been under investigation by the school since Tuesday.
Epping High School freshman Ciretta Mackenzie told Boston 25 that she had to borrow a friends sweatshirt and take off her MAGA hat after being scolded by the schools principal for violating the dress code. The school was celebrating “America Pride Day” as part of “spirit month” event.
“Its just a shirt, and it only says Trump Make America Great Again. It doesnt say anything like build a wall, so I dont get how it could be offensive, how it could be disrespectful,” Ciretta explained.
Ciretta says that there isnt anything in the schools dress code addressing political attire or specifically barring students for wearing it.
Cirettas father commented, “We dont want politics to be totally removed from school, it needs to be in school…the way they went about it was remove everything, you dont want that.”
The Epping High School superintendent told Boston 25 that there were a total of two students who were asked to change their apparel on that day.
Further action will be taken by Cirettas family who plan to discuss the incident with the schools principal on Friday.
