Ottawa School Board Cracking Down on Purse Sizes

Posted by wlpo on May 18, 2010

Ladies at Ottawa High School may have to downsize the size of their purses once next school year begins.

The Ottawa High School Board Monday night updated the student handbook to specify the allowed size of purses.  Superintendent Matt Winchester says some purses have become as big as book bags and under school rules, students can’t bring book bags to class.

The plan is for the school to create a purse of their own to show students the allowable size.  The purses would be available for students to use.

Winchester says the purses probably wouldn’t be all that fashionable other than the Pirate logo somewhere on them.
