Physical Education Class Protocols and Procedures

Students will only be allowed to use their PE locker for PE and athletic equipment. All other items such as books, lunches, jacket etc. will need to be stored in their academic locker. Students in PE will be the only ones allowed to enter the locker room during their scheduled PE class, and it will only be for the first 3-4 minutes of the period and the last 3-4 minutes of the period. Students will not be allowed to go into the locker room or access the locker room for any reason other than to change and retrieve belongings at the beginning and end of class.

Athletes will also have access to their lockers at the end of the school day for practices and games.

No student will be allowed to participate in PE unless they are wearing proper footwear, tied SNEAKERS ONLY.  Slides, boots, slippers, moccasins, flip flops, ballet flats, heels, socks, barefoot etc. will not be deemed safe to participate.

No student will be allowed to attend a Physical Education class during a lunch or a study hall unless they are planning to make up a PE class, arrangements will have to be made between the PE teacher and the other teacher who is responsible for that student during the said period. These arrangements need to be made prior to the class make up and not the day of.

Students will only enter and exit through the doors on the back side of the locker rooms (pool hallway).  Every student will be required to go into the locker room, leave their backpack and other belongings in the locker room during their scheduled PE class time.

All PE classes will meet in the pool hallway/pool lobby area after changing and leaving backpacks in the locker room.  When the teacher/s have locked the locker rooms and taken attendance they will head to their teaching space together (weight room, gymnasium, track, turf etc.)

At the end of PE class students will go back to the locker, change, gather belongings and wait in the locker room or hallway in front of the pool until the bell rings.
