Mom to wear dress to graduation that got daughter sent home from school

On the last day of her senior year, Violet Burkhart was sent home from school for wearing a dress that was half an inch too short.

“I literally looked back at the clock and I’m thinking, it’s 1:00 in the afternoon on her last day of her senior year. My daughter — it’s supposed to be one of her best days and she’s there crying,” Amy Redwine, Violet’s mother, told our sister station WGHP.

Since the last day of school didn’t live up to expectations, Redwine is making her daughter’s graduation extra special by wearing the dress that got her in trouble.

“If her dress is too short, then my dress is too short and I’m going to wear it in front of everybody and be proud just like she should have been able to on her last day,” Redwine said.

Graduation for Central Davidson High School in Lexington, N.C., will be held on Saturday.

The school district did not respond to requests for comment regarding this matter.
