HOUSTON (AP) - A Houston-area high school says it will no longer ask girls to submit a photo of them wearing their prom dress before the night of the dance.

Principal Ben Ibarra of Eisenhower High Senior School said the policy to pre-approve dresses came after parents became upset that their children were turned away at the door for wearing dresses deemed inappropriate.

He said dress code violations for girls include exposed midriffs, short dresses or bikini tops. Boys weren’t required to submit photos because Ibarra said the school hadn’t previously had problems with their attire.

The Houston Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1K3FG6s ) reports an hour after it contacted the school district about the policy, it was removed from the school website. Ibarra said the policy has since been halted.
