Durango High School Yearbook
January 8, 2012 by staff
Durango High School Yearbook, A teenager girl whose revealing senior photo was banned from the Durango High School yearbook is paying to have the photo run as a full-page advertisement in the yearbook, her mother said Saturday.
The senior portrait Spies submitted shows her wearing a yellow skirt with a black shawl wrapped around her chest that exposes her shoulders and midsection.
Earlier in the week, 18-year-old Sydney Spies, her mother and some friends protested outside the school with signs stating that barring her photo violated her freedom of expression.
Spies told the Durango Herald that school administrators told her the senior portrait she submitted would not be printed in the yearbook because her attire in the photo violated dress code. The newspaper said the high school requires that tops “fully cover the chest, back, abdomen and sides of the student.”
But the Herald later reported that the yearbook’s student editors said they decided to yank the photo, not school administrators.
“The administration really had nothing to do with it,” said Tevan Trujillo, a student yearbook editor. “It was us.”
