   Physical Education

   All students will be scheduled to participate in physical education for one quarter.
   Students who have physical education will be required to adhere to the following
   uniform when participating in physical education:
    Black athletic shorts of at least mid-thigh length
   Solid red t-shirt
   Tennis shoes


The administration will make the final judgment on the appropriateness of clothing
and/or appearance and reserves the right to prohibit students from wearing any articles of
clothing or other items which lead to or may foreseeable result in the disruption of or
interference with the school environment. In the event the administration determines a
student’s dress is inappropriate for school in accordance with this policy, the
administration will either require the student to change or will inform the student not to
wear the garment to school again. Repeated violations of the dress code will be treated as
disruptive behavior in violation of the District's Behavior Code.
