US school bans ugg boots
A US school has banned ugg boots because students have been using them to hide banned mobile phones inside.
Pottstown Middle School in suburban Philadelphia is bringing in the ban from today.
The school district's superintendent Reed Lindley said the school principal asked for the boot ban "because of the classroom disruptions that are resulting from ringing cell phones."
Students at the school can avoid going toe-to-toe with school officials by wearing boots that lace up and usually have a more snug fit.
First-time offenders will get detention, and subsequent violations include two detentions, followed by confiscation of the phone, a school spokesman said.
