A group of Utah high school students said they were surprised and upset to discover their school yearbook photos were digitally altered, with sleeves and higher necklines drawn on to cover bare skin.

Several students at Wasatch High School in Heber City said their outfits were in line with the public school's dress code, and they've worn them on campus many times.

Good grief. They're upset because they didn't get to show off enough 'skin' as they wanted in a yearbook photo? THAT is what your priorities are?

Parental consent. Says a bit about the parents.

The school should have been more express, and more restrictive, in the dress code required for the photographs.  The school's actions smack of trying to unscramble the omelet more than anything else.

Or sneaking out with a fake ID or finding a friend who bought a tattoo machine off eBay.

Or just writing a fake consent letter from your parents, the same way that a lot of people (not me, of course) used to excuse themselves from school by writing letters to the school from their parents.
