Skinner PE Dress Code

The overarching objective of the PE Dress Code is to have all students dressed in an appropriate manner to participate fully in a movement based environment. Clothing should be light and easy to move in. We ask that students dress as outlined in the chart below on their homeroom's designated PE day (listed above). Students will not be permitted to change before or after PE, so they will need to come dressed as outlined below on any day where they have PE. Note that the Upper Grade Dress Code still applies to all students in grades 6-8.

Acceptable footwear - gym shoes, sneakers, keens, any closed toed shoe with a rubber sole

Unacceptable footwear - flip flops, any open toed shoe, boots, any shoe with an elevated heel, crocs

Acceptable tops - any school appropriate t-shirt, long sleeve t-shirt, polo, sweatshirt, hooded sweatshirt

Unacceptable tops - sweaters, dress shirts, dresses, any form of denim shirt, vest, or jacket, shirt with any type of tie

Acceptable bottoms - athletic/jogging pants, any type of shorts, yoga pants/leggings, sweatpants

Unacceptable bottoms - jeans, dress slacks, cargo pants, khackis, corduroy pants, any skirt or dress without leggings

Acceptable jewelry - stud earrings, necklaces that can be tucked under a shirt

Unacceptable jewelry - hoop earrings, earings that hang down from the earlobe, anything large or heavy

**Please note that there's always an increased likelihood that things get broken during PE, so we STRONGLY encourage students to not bring anything expensive or valuable to the gym for class, including wearing expensive framed glasses**

Illness & Injury Policy

Students who are ill or injured to the point where their participation in PE will be limited are required to bring either a doctor or parent note to be fully excused from participating in class, but they will still be required to be in the gym for the duration of their PE period and not permitted to do work from any other class.
