Guidelines for Physical Education

Dressing out for PE means changing from regular school clothes into gym clothes and then changing back into regular school clothes after PE class.  Gym clothes are not to be worn underneath other clothing nor are they to be worn outside of the gym class. Gym clothes consist of:

  • Gym shorts – at or near the knee
  • T-shirts – no tank tops or spaghetti straps
  • Warm-up pants or jogging pants
  • Socks
  • Athletic shoes properly laced

The administration has discretion in making judgments relating to the appropriateness of dress to include jewelry.  The appearance of our student body reflects upon the climate of our school.  Students are expected to adhere to standards of dress and grooming that are acceptable in a positive learning environment.

*If and when allowed free dress:  Free dress is simply Blue or Black Jeans and an appropriate shirt.
