- Students who are sick or injured are allowed to bring a parent note for up to 3 class days. A doctor's note will be required after 3 days.
- If a student feels they are injured or hurt in any way, they must tell a PE teacher IMMEDIATELY.
- If a student is having problems with another student in PE, tell the PE teacher IMMEDIATELY.
- Food, drinks, candy/gum will NOT be allowed in the gym, and will be disposed of immediately if seen.
- Be prepared -- always bring your PE clothes and athletic shoes to class.
- No earrings, necklaces, rings or bracelets allowed. This is for the safety of all students.
- Students will be allowed time to dress out. Failure to be in your assigned spot at the designated time will result in consequences.
- Students will be expected to use the time allotted in the locker room to dress out/ re-dressing.
- HORSEPLAY or any other such activities in the locker room will NOT be tolerated.
- Phones, Smartwatches, Chromebooks or other electronic devices will not be allowed at any time! These devices should be locked up in the student’s hallway locker.
- PHONES ARE NOT TO BE OUT IN THE LOCKER ROOM AT ANY TIME. PICTURES & VIDEO (INCLUDING Snapchat, FaceTime, etc.) MAY NOT BE TAKEN AT ANYTIME DURING THE PE PERIOD, TO PROTECT THE PRIVACY OF OTHER STUDENTS. THIS WILL LEAD TO OFFICE REFERRALS & POSSIBLE FURTHER DISCIPLINARY MEASURES.
