In order to ensure students’ safety during Physical Education class, the following guidelines have been established.

-Proper footwear is required. Properly tied sneakers are to be worn for physical education class. Sneakers are designed to allow for easy movement and to protect the feet and ankles from injuries that could occur while participating in vigorous activities.

* No shoes, sandals, flip flops, boots or crocs are allowed. 

-Gym excuses can be given up to three (3) days with a parent note. A doctor’s note must be obtained after the third day. 

-Any student under a doctor’s care for a medical orthopedic reason cannot return to gym without a doctor’s note.  

-A student with a cast, brace, sling or splint will not be allowed to participate in physical education regardless of a doctor note. These devices create the potential for injury to another student.
