Students are required to change for gym class. If a
student does not change for Phys. Ed., it reflects poorly on their 'safety'
Proper Athletic Attire for the Gym Consists Of:
1) Shorts or Sweatpants
- Shorts length must adhere to the school
- Jeans are unacceptable.
2) T-Shirt, Sweatshirt or Long-sleeved
- Spaghetti straps and tank tops that have straps
thinner than 3 of the teachers fingers are unacceptable.
- The shirt can not reveal the child's midriff.
- Muscle shirts are not permitted to be worn during
3) Proper Athletic Footwear (with non-marking
- Winter boots & UGG's during the cooler months
are not considered proper footwear.
- Flip Flops, flats, sandals, sock or barefeet during
the warmer months are not considered proper footwear.
4) All necklaces, earrings, bracelets and wristbands
must be removed during gym class.
If a student does not change for class or forgets
their gym clothes 5 times in a term, they will receive an assignment to complete
in the LAR and they may receive a courtesy phone call home indicated that they
have not changing for Phys Ed. Failing to change for Phys Ed, reflects
negatively on their report card.
This year, students will have Phys Ed outdoors much
more often than in previous years. During the
fall and winter months, students will be participating in activities such as
hiking, geocaching, cross-country skiing, skating, broomball, Inuit and Dene
games, quinzee building, and other outdoor games. During these activities, it is
not unusual for students to be outside for an entire period without a break.
Please ensure that they come to school with proper outdoor clothing so we can
increase student safety and maximize class participation.
Children should wear:
- a toque
neck tube or other covering for the face that covers their nose and
- mitts or gloves (mitts are preferable)
- warm and water resistant outerwear (eg: ski pants)
jacket with a hood
Wool or synthetic socks will retain warmth even when wet. Cotton socks simply
get wet, stay wet, and cool off the feet.
If you don’t have some of the above clothing, remember that dressing in layers
with any type of clothing will provide the best chance for your child to stay
dry and warm.
ensuring that your child comes prepared for Phys Ed, you are helping them stay
safe, and helping them engage in an active lifestyle.
