Collins Physical Education
Empowering all to learn, create,

Dear Collins Community,
We need your help in keeping your children as safe as possible during their
Physical Education class. The best way to accomplish this is to send your
children to school with appropriate sneakers (rubber sole, laces or Velcro,
sturdy, with tread on the bottoms) on the days they have Phys Ed. Although
boots, flip flops, crocs, sandals, and Uggs are extremely fashionable, they
are not safe for movement in the gym.
Children should also wear clothing that is comfortable to move in, i.e., a tee
shirt, shorts, and/or sweatpants. It gets rather warm in the gym so layering is
probably the best way to dress. Hooded shirts, sweaters, sweatshirts, and
loose strings are a hazard, and should be removed prior to class.
In addition, long hair should be tied back, and all jewelry (watches,
bracelets, hoop earrings, and rings) should be kept at home as they are not to
be worn to class.
Thank you for your cooperation in helping keep your children safe, active
and healthy at Collins Elementary School.
