Student Dress Code

MCS All students who attend Moore County Schools are expected to maintain a neat and well groomed appearance. Behavior patterns are affected by the clothing worn, and when students are properly dressed, their focus is on academics and their self esteem increases. The purpose of the dress code is to promote styles of dress, which helps create a positive image for all students. The principal will be in charge of making sure that the dress code is enforced.
