    Students need to have their change of clothes and proper foot wear for each class. 


    We will have outdoor Physical Education classes until the first of November.  Please provide a fleece-type sweat suit to be worn over the gym suit.  This sweat suit does not need to be new.  Old clothing is preferred because they are often forgotten outside by some students.


    Providing a safe learning environment is our prime objective.  Even when reasonable safety precautions have been taken, there is always the possibility of bodily risk or injury during physical education activities.

    Student's Locks

    Students are also given a lock to be used to secure personal property.  If the student losses this lock they will have to replace it for $5.00.  Many times the lock is found and the student will get the money back.
