NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - New Hanover County students didn't have to pick out the first-day-of-school outfit this year as a new dress code is being enforced.

The principal at DC Virgo Middle School in Wilmington said most of the students met all the requirements of the new code Tuesday.

According to the principal, only 10/300 students didn't come to school prepared for the new code.

"At the end of homeroom this morning we had teachers send any students to the office who weren't in dress code, and then we call their parents," said principal Megan Silvey.  "I spoke with their parents what particular on their body did not fit the dress code."
