AUBREY (CBSDFW.COM) – Armed police officers will be patrolling a middle school campus on Wednesday after a heated debate over the school’s dress code has fueled threats. This all stems from an issue in the Aubrey Independent School District that was first reported on Friday.

A pair of 11-year-old twin sisters were not allowed to wear their hoodies with Air Force logos, because the emblem on the back was bigger than what the dress code allows. Their parents said that the logos honor their proud military family.

A group of about 60 people — mixed between parents and students — showed up at Aubrey Middle School on Tuesday night to show support for the district’s decision. This came just hours after armed police officers were sent to the school in response to, what the district called, threats fueled by this hot topic.

“Scary. Never seen a school like this before,” said student Morgan Merchant. “Teachers nervous, the principal was nervous.”

“Our debate about the hoodies put kids at risk,” said Phil Rolen, father of the two girls at the center of this dress code issue. “I think that’s really saddening.” An email from Aubrey ISD Superintendent Debby Sanders suggested that Rolen was the reason for “an increased presence of local police.”

The school district has agreed to implement a temporary change in its dress code, for the first time in decades. While military logos have always been allowed, they will now also be permitted even if they are very large.

Still, some parents remain upset that the complaints inaccurately brought negative attention to the district. “We want to show everybody that Aubrey ISD is patriotic,” said parent Meredith Tenney. “We are not anti-military.”

“It’s just about a dress code that we’ve all agreed to,” said parent Becky Merchant. “My kids have been out of dress code before and we’ve gotten in trouble for it.”
