DUNCANVILLE, Texas - School dress code violations have earned more than 150 Duncanville High School students a suspension.

The code requires tucked-in shirts with collars, non-sagging pants, belts and closed-toe shoes.

Students say the suspensions were handed out Wednesday when code violators were brought to the school cafeteria and then sent home.

Some students say the dress code hadn't been enforced all year. The principal of the more than 3,700-student campus about 10 miles southwest of Dallas, Andre Smith, disagrees. He says officials have high expectations for their students.

Police were summoned to the school later Wednesday after a student food fight but Duncanville city officials say they're not aware of any arrests.
