From Glynn County Schools:

On 10/27/2020, Oglethorpe Pointe Elementary was having “Super Hero Day” in celebration of Red Ribbon Week. A male student came to school as “Super Trump” wearing a “Trump 2020” hat, a Trump flag as a cape, and a red t-shirt with a blue “T” on it. 

A staff member noticed his dress and went to a school administrator to ask if it was appropriate. The administrator located the young man in his classroom and called the student and teacher into the hallway. After a discussion with the student about the costume, the administrator asked the student to remove the cape and the hat, and he willingly did so.

These actions and the determination to ask the student to remove his costume were not altogether consistent with our dress code policy. This personnel matter has been turned over to our Human Resources Department.
