POST FALLS, Idaho (AP) - An Idaho high school is telling its cheerleaders bare legs are allowed at games, not in the classroom.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports (https://bit.ly/1OUQxEk) Post Falls High School is requiring cheerleaders in game uniforms during class to wear leggings or campus-issued sweatpants.

Post Falls Superintendent Jerry Keane says the issue is a matter of adhering to dress code. Rule breakers will be asked to change clothes.

Keane said the single-length skirts are worn differently by each athlete and are “not really” designed for sitting and going up stairs.

During games, athletes perform lifts and flips in the outfits.

The Coeur d’Alene School District made a similar rule change in 2012.
