Physical Education No- No’s:
Lockers: Students are responsible for their lockers and locks. Any damage to these lockers is their responsibility. Master Locks are issued to every student, free of charge. If the lock is not returned at the end of the year, the student will be charged $5 to replace the lock. Other locks will not be allowed, because we need to have access to the locker in emergencies and provide combinations for the students if they forget it. We appreciate this cooperation greatly. We also encourage students to lock their locks every time they leave the locker room, this includes when the student is in class. Don’t leave anything out that is valuable. Students may leave valuables in the locked office. Students may not share lockers. This is for security purposes. The staff will not go into the lockers, so if the students’ clothes are in someone else’s locker, we will not get them without the other student present.
Locker Room Rules:
Medical Excuses: In physical education, students are allowed to be excused from 3 consecutive physical education classes with a note from a parent/guardian. After 3 excused classes; a doctor’s note is required, which is required to be given to the nurse prior to class. The P.E. teachers will receive a copy of the note from the nurse. If a student is not feeling well that day, a note is required for the next class in order to be legally excused from the missed class. Written assignments will be issued to students sitting out on medical, in place of their physical participation.
Number 1 Rule of Physical Education: HAVE FUN!!!!!
