P.E. Uniform Order Form

A.C. New Middle School Physical Education

Dear Parent and Student,
We are excited to have the opportunity to teach you in Physical Education! This document explains the expectations for P.E. this year.

Tardies
You will have three minutes to get to the locker room (this is the passing period). You will have 8 minutes to change into your workout clothes and be seated in your assigned spot. Lockers will be assigned; some students may have to share a locker. School items may be stored in the locker during the physical education class only. Workout clothes may be left in the locker overnight, but should be taken home to wash on the last day of each week.

Dressing Out
It is mandatory that all students dress out for P.E. the entire school year. This is a MISD policy. Dressing out includes wearing athletic shoes with socks, gray shirt and black basketball length shorts. If a student does not dress out in appropriate P.E. clothing points will be deducted daily. Students will call home and let parent know that they have not dressed out.  Please see MISD guidelines for not dressing out.

Clothing Needed

  1. Gray t-shirt, black basketball length shorts (mid-thigh to knee length-no shorter than 5” inseam)-Solid black workout pants may also be worn, socks and athletic shoes

*Above is an order form for district wide physical education uniforms. They are available to purchase. This is not a required purchase. However, if you do not choose to purchase, you will be issued a shirt that must be worn each day. You will be expected to launder this shirt and if it is not returned at the end of the year, you will be charged for this garment. Each set of shorts and shirt will cost $15.00 and the last day to turn in the order form is Thursday, August 31, 2017.

Excuses for Non-Participation
Notes from parents are permitted if a student needs to be excused from participation. A student will not be excused from participation for more than three days per semester. A parent note should include the reason that the student may not participate. After three days of excused participation, a physician’s statement is required. Students are still required to dress out, unless the physician states that changing clothes would be detrimental to a student’s health.  Any written assignments will still need to be completed.

Medical Non-Participation
Students may be excused from participation as long as necessary with a physician’s statement. The statement should be on the physician’s letterhead and should contain the reason for the excuse, the date the excuse should begin, and the length of time the student will be excused. Depending on the nature of the excuse, the student will have one or two assignments. These include, but are not limited to:

  1. Dress out and participate in the unit in any way possible. This would include activities such as stretching, walking, keeping score, and/or officiating.
  2. Complete a meaningful assignment relating to the unit, such as, written projects, library research or creative projects.
