NEW MADRID, MO (KFVS) -

Most teachers don't have a specific dress code, but the principal at Immaculate Conception Catholic School in New Madrid has established her own special dress code for the first day of school.

Principal Mary Shy has worn the same dress on the first day of school for the last 30 years.

"You never think you're going to start something and do it for 30 straight years," said Principal Shy. "It just started and I just kept wearing it. I guess I just, you know, took away the stress of having to pick out a perfect first day of school dress."

Students say they look forward to the first day of school each year to see if she will be wearing the same dress.
