POWAY, Calif. (AP) - A female vice principal allegedly lifted girls' skirts - in front of male students and adults - to make sure they weren't wearing thong underwear at a dance.
``Everyone saw everything,'' said Kim Teal, whose 15-year-old daughter attended the dance but was not checked. ``It was a big peep show.''
School officials are interviewing students and staff before responding to parents who have called for the dismissal of the vice principal Rita Wilson at Rancho Bernardo High School, a district spokeswoman said Tuesday.
Students said they were told to line up outside the gym before entering the dance so Wilson could check their underwear. Those wearing thongs were turned away.
Wilson did not return phone calls seeking comment Tuesday. District spokeswoman Sharon Raffer wouldn't say why thong underwear would be prohibited at a school dance, but said that ``dress needs to be appropriate.''
``It's not their right to know what kind of underwear these kids have,'' parent Alane Garvik told television station KGTV in San Diego.
Watching the news tonight is just astounding for me.
