1. HUNTINGTOWN HIGH SCHOOL PHYSICAL EDUCATION
Dear Parents and Guardians:
This letter has been prepared for the purpose of acquainting both pupils and parents
with the policies and regulations of the Huntingtown High School Physical Education
Department. We are asking for your Cooperation with implementation and enforcement
of these regulations in order for your child to realize his or her greatest potential.
POLICIES AND REGULATIONS
In the interest of health, appearance and safety, all pupils are required to wear a physical education
uniform. The uniform consists of a shirt, shorts, white socks, and tennis shoes. Students will be able to
purchase the uniform from Huntingtown High School. Shirts are 100% cotton. Shorts are micro-mesh
nylon. The cost of the entire uniform and locker rental is $25.00. The students name will be placed
on the uniform to help with identification. Sweatshirts are acceptable and recommended for wearing
outside in cold weather as long as they are worn over a physical education uniform and are not worn to or
from physical education class. Under no circumstance is a sweatshirt an acceptable substitute for a
uniform shirt for use during inside activity.
Each student must be dressed in full uniform in order to participate in class. If a student forgets his/her
physical education uniform, a loaner uniform may be rented for $ 1.00 for that period only and must be
turned in at the end of that class. Students will be allowed one IOU.
Wearing uniforms inside out, cutting off the sleeves, writing on the uniform, or crossing out the
name on the shirt is not acceptable. At no time should students wear uniforms with other
student’s names on the uniform.
Students are to wear the following types of shoes during physical education class: laced tennis shoes,
closed front and back, and flat heels and soles. Any other type will be detrimental to the students’ safety
and will not be acceptable attire.
The parent or guardian must provide a note in the event a student is unable to participate in class. If an
illness or an injury prevents a student from participation for more than 3 days, a note must be provided by
a physician. A note only excuses a student from participation, not from dressing out. Students are still
required to dress at all times, unless handicapped by a cast, splint, etc. Short term and extended illness
will result in written work for the student.
75% of the course grade is based upon dress and level of participation.
Five (5) points per day:
-Two (2) points participation
-Two (2) points on time and dressed
-One (1) teacher discretion
25% of course grade is based upon in class academic and skills work.
20% of the final grade is based on the final exam.
6 or more non-dress days will result in failing for the quarter
