UPDATE: After speaking with Muskegon High School Principal Brad Perkins Thursday afternoon, E! News can reveal the matter has been resolved between all parties. "There are things we learned from this. We have a strict dress code," Perkins explained. "Going forward there are things we will address, which includes access to see me."
He added, "Mireya is a remarkable human being and we wish her the best going forward."
One mom is sticking up for her teenager after she was kicked out of her high school prom for wearing a backless dress.
According to Connie Briceno, her 18-year-old daughter Mireya Briceno completely followed all dress codes when she attended the dance wearing a blue dress with white polka-dots.
"The guidelines specifically said backless dresses are acceptable," the Michigan mom told Yahoo Parenting. "The rules stated the dress needed to adhere to the ‘fingertip' rule—meaning the dress had to hit below your fingertip when standing with her arms by your side."
She added, "They also said no midriff showing, which to me means stomach. And they said the words ‘backless dresses are acceptable.'"
