Winter Dress Code Policy:

The current student handbook states that students may not wear outerwear and jackets in the classroom; however, TMSA does allow some exceptions to this during the cooler months. Our policy is to allow students to wear fleece jackets from our vendors in the classrooms as long as they are in our school colors and have the TMSA logo. School colors for fleece jackets include navy for K-10, with additional colors of red, white, gray, and hunter green for high school students only. We also allow students to wear solid navy blue jackets and sweaters without the TMSA logo during the months of November through March, as long as they do not have a hood and other name brand logos or designs showing.

Uniform Vendors:

1- EmbroidMe (https://www.companycasuals.com/TriangleAcademySchoolStore/start.jsp)

2- Flynn O'Hara (www.flynnohara.com/school/nc053)

Please note: If parents choose not to purchase the uniform from our uniform supplier, they may do so as long as the uniform clothing purchased matches identically the same style & color as what uniform supplier carries for TMSA. All uniform tops must have the TMSA logo embroidered on the left upper side. Should a student’s uniform not comply with the uniform dress code, they will be considered in violation. Students who violate the uniform code will be allowed to call home for an appropriate change of clothing after obtaining administrator approval.
