District policy requires all children wear TENNIS SHOES in Physical Education for their own safety. These shoes must have white soles, or scuff-proof black soles. Sandals, sandal backs, boots, cleated shoes, dress shoes, shoes with rollers, and slip-on shoes will not be allowed. If your child does not want to wear tennis shoes to school, please send them in their backpack.
Girls need to wear shorts under dresses or skirts.
Please help your child be responsible. Children will not be allowed to participate without proper attire. Failure to wear the appropriate attire will result in a lowered participation grade.
Please send a note if your child needs to be excused from P.E. A doctor’s note is required if the child must miss three or more days of school.
