Dress Code for the 2011-2012 school year The Academy of Moore County strives to create an environment which allows our students to concentrate on academic and character education of the highest quality. While individuality is not discouraged, the clothing and physical appearance of an individual should not disrupt the educational atmosphere of the School.
For your convenience uniforms may be purchased at www.frenchtoast.com. When you go to the web site you can enter the school source code QS5FGSJ and it will show you which items you need to purchase. The socks and tights listed are optional. You can also pick up a copy of the dress code at the school.
You may also purchase uniforms at Lil Branch's in Aberdeen and Uniforms by Sharon in Fayetteville. Some items may need to be special ordered, so please give yourself enough time for shipping orders so that you have the uniforms prior to the first day of school.

Dress Code Violations
DRESS CODE VIOLATIONS invoke additional consequences as listed below:
(a) students who violate the dress code a first time will be given the opportunity to change into appropriate clothing. If the student cannot supply appropriate clothing, an alternate school-owned uniform, if available, will be loaned to the student for the duration of the school day, to be returned to the school office at the end of the school day.
(b) Students who violate the dress code a second time in the same year will be given an outer garment to wear, as outlined above, without the option to change into personal clothing. Parents will be notified and the student may also receive additional consequences such as after school detention, school community service, etc.
(c) In addition to taking the steps outlined above, any student found in violation of the dress code for the third time will be referred to the Principal, who will schedule a parent conference to discuss the persistent problem, and discuss and agree to a solution. A third offence under this code may be considered as a category II violation.
A safe and disciplined learning environment is the first requirement of a good school. Young people who are safe and secure, learn basic American values and the essentials of good citizenship, are better students.
Uniform programshelp to improve school safety and discipline, help students concentrate on their school work and help parents and students resist peer pressure.
