What should I wear to Physical Education class?
SNEAKERS-Proper footwear is essential for physical activity. Sneakers that ensure safe and efficient movement should cover the entire foot and be fastened securely to the foot. Shoes such as Uggs, heels, boots, sandals and dress shoes are not permitted to be worn during physical activity.
Comfy Clothes-Clothing that allows a student to move freely in all directions is ideal. Students should be aware that physical activity often leads to the production of body heat and therefore, they should wear a cool shirt underneath of sweaters and sweatshirts. Clothing such as skirts and dresses may hinder the student’s ability to participate in certain activities such as climbing and crawling. Thin strap tank tops are not permitted to be worn during activity.
What should I do if I get hurt outside of school and cannot participate?
Parent Notes: If you cannot participate one day because of injury or illness, a note from your parent or guardian will be accepted as an excuse from Physical Education. This note should be handed in to your homeroom teacher upon arrival to school and taken to the school nurse thereafter. You will hand me the note from your parent or a formal excuse from the nurse when you come to P.E. class. Any injury or illness that will keep you out of Physical Education for more than one day requires a signed note from your doctor. If you are excused from Physical Education you will be required to do an assignment that will count towards your grade for class participation.
Doctor Notes: Any injury or illness that will keep you out of Physical Education for more than one day requires a signed note from your doctor.
